Notification email details

I couldn't figure out how to configure the Notification module to send out better subject headings, so I changed the module code. The file to change is in modules/notify/notify.module .

Content notifications title

in

This blog entry is intended to trigger a notification.

If you are one of the 11 people who signed up for notifications independently you may notice some problems. Unfortunately I am a terrible programmer, so I think the code I hacked to make the notification e-mail subject threadable has lots of bugs.

RMS and Stroustrup to speak at UW

in

The Computer Science Club at the University of Waterloo is hosting two very big names in the computer science world next month:

- On Friday July 6 at 4:30pm, Richard M. Stallman (founder of the Free Software Foundation) will be speaking about "Copyright vs. Community in the Age of Computer Networks"

- On Tuesday July 17 at 7:00pm, Bjarne Stroustrup (creator of C++) will be speaking about "C++0x -- An Overview"

Both talks are being held in Room 116 of the Arts Lecture Hall at the University of Waterloo. Admission is free as in beer, I believe.

Nefarious Plan

If all goes well (?) people on the mailing list will see this post even if they never have visited the website in their lives. This increases the potential for spam, but it adds a level of communication that has been missing since the days of kwlug-forums.

Fail part 3

Are my tag sets going to bother being consistent now?

I bet they won't!

Fail, again

Why doesn't hitting the cron page send me an update?

I fail the test

I am breaking the site again. When you come to the site and cannot read this, you will know who to blame.

Response to kermit: old KWLUG site

First of all, why can't I post responses to forum entries? This is so broken.

To answer your question: cruft.kwlug.org

We should probably make that site read-only, though...

Response to dopper: My First Linux Experience

I am glad you had a good first meeting. We did get a good turnout for that talk -- we usually get 20-30 people.

The organization that was mentioned is CLUE: the Canadian Association for Open Source. Visit http://www.cluecan.ca for more information.

Jobs at PeaceWorks

in
PeaceWorks is an computer consulting company that caters to nonprofits and charities. They have been doing good work in KW andsurrounding areas for something like 11 years, and they are looking for qualified people who have good technical skills and share their values. There are two job openings: one for a Linux/Windows Client Network Administrator, and one for a Software Consultant. Full job descriptions are posted at http://www.peaceworks.ca/index.php?content=Employment Both jobs are mixed proprietary/FLOSS environments, so this could bea transition job for people who know a lot about Windows and something about Linux, and want to move in a more open-source direction.
