please let me know if you are coming. i'm not sure if the "bring your own
computer to have linux installed" bit is workable, so i am asking people
what do people think is a fair donation? $10 unwaged? $50 waged?
i was planning to present at the start some approaches and philosophies of
system admin, to try and stop too much lost time to discussion of the
how. if we need to discuss system policies i think we should do that
beforehand, on this list. e.g. that is how we already decided to use
can someone please forward this to slug (sydney linux user's group) and
rent-a-geek and anywhere else appropriate?

The cat internet server runs active-sydney, along with many other
activist websites and mailing lists.
It is a PC running GNU/Linux, an alternative operating system to
Windows. GNU/Linux is free software, that's free as in free speech,
as well as free beer.
The current server has been running almost non-stop for about 4
years. But to get many new features that we want, and to improve
security, it's time we did an upgrade.
We've chosen debian 2.2 linux for installation. We'll be setting
up a new machine from scratch, to put online for a couple of weeks
before doing a changeover to become the live system. We also want
to try and write some documentation as we go along, about decisions
and ways of doing things.
Our main goal for the day is to get the install done and teach
people as part of that process, but if we can help others get their
systems installed, we'll do that too.
