SeaGL accepted my etckeeper talk

SeaGL accepted one of my talks again this year! This year I'll speak about Joey Hess' excellent etckeeper.

etckeeper makes it easy to keep system configuration files in revision control. In addition to normal revision control, etckeeper includes important features to track file ownership and permissions, work with package managers and track empty directories. etckeeper supports git, mercurial, bazaar and darcs revision control systems.

Tübix Community Conference in Southern Germany

I went to my first Tübix this year. Tübingen is a beautiful college town ( Universitätsstadt ) on the Neckar river in southwestern Germany.

I particularly enjoyed the talks on SSH and authentication, both of which led into my talk on privacy and security via a password manager. I picked up a couple new ways of explaining things from the SSH talk and look forward to listening to it again.
