MCC's GNU/Linux security class is scheduled to start Oktober 20th. This one doesn't run very often, so sign up now.

The class will be run as a hands on lab as that's essential to really understanding security tools. It runs Monday and Wednesdays from 18:00 to 21:40 for 8 weeks, 2008Okt20 to 2008Dez10.

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.

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.

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.

Section number 15782 of BPC110 is an online class covering an introduction to the OpenOffice.org application suite. It starts August 25th, so sign up now.

The class is full! That's great news for education about Free Software. The class limit is higher than it was supposed to be, so there are still a few extra slots left. Sign up now if you want to take the class.

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.

Geek Paintball

Some PLUG and LOPSA-US-AZ members will be meeting to play paintball at noon on June 14th. The event is open to anyone who wants to join us. We can get up to 30 people on the group reservation, but the facility can accomodate more.

See the Xtreme Pursuit group rate page to see what you get for $25. We'll certainly be needing to buy more ammo as well.
