Greetings, brothers and sisters, and welcome to your new lives as
Devoted Ecstatic believers in Ascendant Nerdvana. By attending this
announcement e-mail you have taken the first step on the Nerdvanic
Path. As you enjoy your complimentary glass of Kool-aid let us examine
the structure of Monday's orientation meeting. Beginning at 7pm
Brother Andrew will reveal to you the revealed secrets of package
management and the One True Infrastructure. His teachings will reveal
how to seek out packages, install and integrate them, and purge them
when they are no longer useful. Brother Andrew will reveal the hidden
truths beneath the surface, offering glimpses into the secret world of
debconf and diversions and dpkg and APT repositories. He shall reveal
the Truth, and the history of the Truth, and the mindstate that drives
the One True Infrastructure. 

I see that you have taken many different roads to the Nerdvanic path.
Some of you are neophytes to the One True Infrastructure, or to Linux
in general. Others have dabbled with splinter distributions such as
Linux Mint and Ubuntu.  Several of you are seeking refuge from the
heresies of fraudulently erroneous demogogues of RPM apostasy. Maybe
some of you are spies hoping to corrupt the revealed secrets for your
own vile purposes. No matter. Even you will be moved and convinced by
Brother Andrew's teachings. You won't want to live any other way. 

On the topic of life changing revelations, this month's FLOSS Fund
nominee is XBMC, the home multimedia centre revealed to us by Brother
Adam just two months ago. You can revisit the truths of XBMC by
visiting http://xbmc.org , and you can donate at the meeting or by
addressing me using electronic mail. 

Stop stumbling in the darkness. Join us in downtown Kitchener: 

St John's Kitchen
97 Victoria St N 
(at the corner of Victoria and Weber)

Do not be fooled by the innocuous exterior. 

You may park your motor-vehicles in the thrift store lot, and your
safety-bicycles along the side of the building. 

- Brother Paul
