hi ppl, I think this sat is auspicious for kicking off bitlug activities again... so, what we have lined up this time is kernel compiling by Prasad, and also a mystery talk by Shantanu... Also new this time is the concept of BoF (birds of a feather) huddles after/before/inbetween talks (thanx pavan, for the idea!) lets see if it works out... it would be definitely cool for this to be a planned, regular affair... Prasad also suggests nonlinux userland topics like email security (pgp/gpg) as part of the talk... so lotsa things to discuss... get yer fingertips tapping ! also, <admin rant> pls see that the posts are relevant to the list.(India-Aus-cricket sympathy is *definitely* OT) such posts *might* be tolerated if they have some (majority) portion relating to Linux or compsci... see this excerpt from the list intro file: * This list will not tolerate spam in the form of chain letters, jokes and suchlike.Such behaviour will warrant blacklisting.Off topic (OT) humour and technical rants are restricted to 10% of the time. you have been warned. </admin rant> -P the curls in your keyboard cord are losing electricity.
