Free Happenings

So much going on, where to start.

I’ll start with a big thank you to Paul W. Frields from the Fedora Project for an excellent talk at CALug last Wednesday. He gave us a presentation on remixing Fedora that led to pleasantly running over our regular end time. Many things were discussed and asked about that may lead to a neat new feature or two.

A short time ago I finally finished updating my bug triaging presentation for the Global Bug Jam next weekend. It has been posted to the Running A Bug Jam page on the Ubuntu wiki for all those giving a talk next weekend. Here in Maryland we’ll be going to the Howard County Library’s Miller Branch from 9am-1pm on February 21st. I’ll be starting the presentation about 9:30. If you’re closer to the DC area the DC Loco will be starting their jam at 1:30pm and running until 6pm.

Our regular team meeting will be this Thursday the 19th from 7-9pm at the Central Library.

March 5th we will be seeing the next instalment of the Dojosec presentations sponsored by Sun Tzu data. Marcus Carey started these talks, described as dinner theater for security geeks, back in October. Each month has featured a terrific set of speakers. March’s talk will feature Marcus Ranum and his ‘Cyberwar is Bullsh!t’ talk. This will take place at the Charles I. Ecker Business Training Center in Columbia, MD. The evening normally runs from 6-9:30 but be sure to sign up for the mailing list for all the details and to RSVP.

FOSE is coming up in March. David Cafaro recently posted to the CALug mailing list asking for volunteers for the booth this year. Trade a couple hours of your time if available to spread the word on Free software!

Congrats to Matt Kenseth on winning the 51st Daytona 500! Rain shortened races are always a drag, particularly if you are there in the stands, but a win is a win.

I think that about does it for the evening. I feel that I left something out but there’s always another day to post that stuff.
