Contributions - cash or equipment, but apparently to SPI, with instructions to forward to OpenWRT, instead of OpenWRT directly:
- https://dev.openwrt.org/wiki/SupportDonate - includes credit card payment means. No obvious PayPal mechanism sticks out.
KWLUG - The Kitchener-Waterloo Linux User Group is a monthly meeting of Linux enthusiasts. We meet in Kitchener, Ontario, usually on the first (non-holiday) Monday of the month. (Directions) Our meetings are free and open to those with an interest in Linux. Find out more about our meetings and browse the meeting minutes. Join our mailing lists.
William Park will show us how to run UNIX shells from other operating systems: Windows (cygwin, virtual machines, busybox, and Windows 10 Ubuntu shell); MacOS; Chromebooks (crosh, crouton); and Android (termux). This presentation is intended to be accessible to Linux beginners.
KWLUG members hold a roundtable discussion. They covered topics including MySQL replication, token ring networks, speculative execution in light of the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities, the RowHammer vulnerability, and the geneology of operating systems. See kwlug.org/node/1108 for additional information, slides and other auxiliary materials. Note that this audio has had silences clipped.
Doug Moen discusses the 3D modelling language Curv he is developing, and Jonathan Fritz discusses working at Mattermost, which is building a chat-ops open-source alternative to Slack. See kwlug.org/node/1106 for additional information, slides and other auxiliary materials. Note that this audio has had silences clipped.

Mary Loubele will lead an interactive demonstration of how to use Elasticsearch to visualize the Twitter API. Bring your laptop loaded with VirtualBox. You will also need a Twitter login to access the API. A VM for you to import, as well as instructions for getting started, will be released closer to the presentation date. (If it is fewer than two weeks until the presentation and there are no links here, please remind us via the contact page).
The demonstration will cover the following topics:
Khalid Baheyeldin discusses how he got into astronomy, and the software he uses to help him take pictures of the sky: Stellarium, Cartes du Ciel, and KStars. See kwlug.org/node/1011 for additional information, slides and other auxiliary materials. Note that this audio has had silences clipped.
