I know that at one of the meetings, it was mentioned that WPI has their own
Could one of the WPI techs give a quick explanation on how they did this?
As the number of linux boxes I manage grows, this is something I'd like to
deploy into my infrastructure.
Holiday cheer would be facilitated greatly if I were able to find a
802.11g wireless card that works with linux. Does anyone in the group
have any experience or insight regarding 802.11g and linux
Please note that I just rescheduled a bunch of the meetings for calendar year
2004. Please check the WLUG website for more information. Please accept my
apologies for scheduling two Wednesday meetings for consecutive months. I am
scheduling around my commitment to teach a Linux course for the Adult
Education program in Chelmsford, MA.
A note about the December 2003 meeting: This meeting was well attended, with
at least 30 people present to watch the "Revolution OS" DVD. Many thanks for
your generous donations to help defray the cost of the raffle items (we broke
even *and* set a WLUG record of $58.50!), and to Chuck Anderson for his help
with the projection system. It was nice to see some faces of people who
occasionally attend meetings in addition to the "regulars" and a few newbies.
With regard to the January 2004 meeting, there was an interesting discussion
on the WLUG mailing list recently about digital signatures and e-mail. I
would like to know if there are any volunteers who would like to do a
presentation on this topic. If so, please send me an e-mail. Here are some
ideas which came to mind:
- how to create your own digital signature (and why)
- how to get your friend's digital signature and be sure it is authentic
- how to configure (pick a mail client) for use with digital signatures
- verifying a digitally signed e-mail
- other related ideas?
Finally, if you are unfamiliar with this comic strip, take a look. Its pretty

The film Thursday was tops, a great intro about where free software and open
source came from. In a mock of the film, Doug Mildram stood us all for free
beer at the Boynton afterwards. Present: Scott, Amy, Greg, Andy, Doug, Chuck,
Keith, Al. I truly appreciate all you do, Andy. It was a great evening and
intro for the holidaze ahead!

I've got a color 13" television I'd like to give to a good home. It's an
oldie, but a goodie. Every once and a while it'll get a bit of a red ting,
but overall it works great. Note, this TV only has coax input.
I've also got a 21" viewsonic monitor that the red electron gun has gone on
the fritz. I'm sure a monitor tech could fix it in no time, however since
it cost me nothing, I feel no qualms in just giving it away.
1. Pentium 166 with 128mb of ram. This entire machine is questionable and
possibly a fire hazard (due to some dodgy soldering work done by your truly
on the power supply after the fans bearings went south and I installed a new
fan) though I ran the machine for many years after my repairs and never had
a problem. With a new case and power supply this machine would probably be
a great firewall. It's also got a 512mb and 3gig hard drive in it.
2. Huge Server case minus power supply. 6 bays in the front, lots of room
for fans and drives and all that good stuff.
If you want any of this stuff, just write me back and I'll bring it with me
to the next wlug meeting. If you can't make it to the meeting, we'll
