new security lab

PLUG is starting a new security lab on the second Saturday of every month. We'll be meeting from noon until 15:00 at UAT.

A security tool will be presented and then we'll work on using it. Bring a laptop and be prepared to use Live CDs to experiment with various Free Software security tools.

Thanks to UAT for providing a space for us to meet and especially for allowing us to run a security lab on their network.

Ready for a real Oktoberfest experience in Arizona? Try the 3rd annual Phoenix Oktoberfest from the Arizona Center for Germanic Cultures.

ABLEconf is almost here

ABLEconf is the brand new Free Software conference for Arizona. Our goal is to introduce Free Software such as GNU/Linux, Firefox, Thunderbird, the GIMP, Inkscape and OpenOffice.org to the general public. We'll also have geek stuff like programming and storage and toys and games :).

The inaugural ABLEconf event is being held on Software Freedom Day, Saturday, September 20th 2008, at the University for Advancing Technology (UAT) from 10:00 to 17:00.

OpenOffice.org sold out!

The OpenOffice.org class at MCC is 100% full. Doubly-so, actually.

It was supposed to be limited to a half-size class, but it has a full class of students.

Other Free Software classes at a variety of community colleges in the valley are also doing well.

deutsche Film bloss bis Montag

OneNightCinema mietet ein Kino um bestimmte Filme zu ziegen.

Ein deutscher Film, Yella läuft bis Montag.

Der Tempe Stammtisch sieht ihn am Sonntag und am Montag an.

( The German film Yella is showing until Monday, see link for more info )

Fall Free Software classes

The Fall semester starts next week for the community colleges. Lots of Free Software classes being offered.

Update: changed the URL to include full classes and not specify the semester. It seems to default to the current semester.

Here are the results for a search for Linux that was netting 42 classes and 17 different courses.

Paintball was fun

Paintball was fun. We had a mix of people. It was also a good opportunity to give Kevin a bit of a send off and hope it's the last time he's shot at in the next few years.

tunys was in to represent the Avondale Stammtisch and schlepped his Lojban book with him. We should've gotten him to yell out war cries in Lojban :).

The indoor facility is nice and the appropriate place for summer games in Phoenix, but we should try one of the outdoor facilities in late Fall.
