wassa topic(s) this month?
Are you kidding? There's a good one full day before the meeting and you're already asking what the topics' going to be? sheesh :roll:
/sarcasm mode off
indeed. maybe I'll make it to the meeting in December.
Another reason we need a comittee to determine topics
well, here's a topic idea for the committee...
let's study the effects of beer and strippers on linux geeks.
That has bad effects especially if the wife finds out :) and some how that always seems to happen. :)
I suggest we take the first 30 or so minutes on Thursday (11/4) and decide topics for December and all of next year. I can think of five or six off the top of my head.
... just my $.02
that is really a great idea, and we could then make them a working list and modify as needed. I think it would do a lot in the way of drawing attention. I think more people are in the boat that despite is in.....they won't make the trip unless they fell it worth the while.....of course hanging out with us should be its own reward :)
Don't forget to include candidates for the presentation of the topics. Suggesting them and keeping a list is a fantastic idea, but they won't happen if there is noone to present them. Volunteers (like 2 or more per topic ideally) would be cool to have for each topic, and hopefully each topic won't have the same presenter.
It may not be completely realistic to expect to have a presenter for each topic listed, but hopefully at least the next three months can be established.
Robert has posted the topics, come one come all :)
Beginner topic: Configuring dhcpd
Advanced Topic: Talking directly to internet servers
well, crap. that advanced topic is kinda interesting. maybe it's gonna be about telneting to specific ports and sending the right commands down the line? too bad I didn't know about it sooner. I guess I'll just have to read the transcript later.
Just always plan to come and see the great people at the sig.....you know people like me......and you will never have any problems :twisted:
you need to sweeten the deal. like, oh, I don't know... maybe with strippers and beer.
I have some paint stripper and some rubbing alcohol :twisted:
ah, who am I kidding? you had me at "hello".
Our next meeting will be on Thursday, December 04, 2004.
