Linux literacy course

(Apologies to those who have seen me plug this for the 15th time)

I am involved with running a course on "Linux and Free Software Literacy". The course starts at 7pm on Tuesday, October 18. It will be held in downtown Kitchener.

If you are interested in participating, there is still room in the course. Visit the KW FreeSkool site for more information.

Font sizes in Drupal 5 vs Drupal 6

John sent a message to kwlug-disc arguing that there is no difference in font sizes between the old KWLUG site and the new one. Unfortunately the attachments were too big for the list to accept, so I am publishing the .xcf files here.

Downtimes ahead

This website will probably go down for maintenance a few times over the next little while, as we do some site upgrades. The next downtime will be January 14, sometime after 6pm.

PGP keysigning party instructions

Updated: Maybe you should not generate a key with the default settings. See Step 1 below.

The September 2010 meeting will feature a keysigning party.

Chris Frey (cdfrey at the domain foursquare dot net) is the KeyMaster for this party. As part of the process, you will e-mail him your key.

Here are his instructions for getting started, with some e-mail address obfuscation:

  1. Generate new key:


    gpg --gen-key

    (Accept the defaults, they are pretty good)

Software Freedom Day poster

Here is a poster for this year's iteration of Software Freedom Day. Post it far and wide!
