February Meeting: Micro Community ISP upgrade & PirateBox revisited

Date: February 8, 2018 at 7 p.m.
Location: Algonquin College (Woodroffe Campus), room T111

This month we will have a talk from Peter Sjöberg on upgrading a very small ISP and an updated talk from Scott Murphy on an ad hoc collaboration system.


There will be a one hour pre-meeting item from 18:00 to 19:00 for people who are new to Linux, have general questions, or wish to help out with people who are just getting started.

After Meeting Social:

After the meeting, there typically will be a social event at one of the nearby pubs or restaurants. A short discussion and vote as to location will be taken at the end of the talks.

GPG Keysigning:

After the main talk and possibly the BoF, there will be the opportunity for a GPG key signing. This is a monthly offering, just look for Scott after the talk and we can go from there. Bring some kind of photo ID and some keyslips if you expect people to sign your key.If you need some method of creating pages of keyslips, there is an online slip generator available.
