Contribution Date

It's somewhat startling to realize OpenWRT wasn't nominated long ago ...


- OpenWrt is described as a Linux distribution for embedded devices.

Contributions - cash or equipment, but apparently to SPI, with instructions to forward to OpenWRT, instead of OpenWRT directly:

- - includes credit card payment means. No obvious PayPal mechanism sticks out.

LaTeX in the Law Library, GDB

John Kerr will discuss his use of LaTeX at his law library. He writes:

Not just for math and science, LaTeX has found its way into the law library I manage. I will demonstrate some of the documents I create in the library. I will also show what Gaelic and LaTeX have in common.

Sergio Durigan Junior will give us an overview of GDB, the GNU Debugger. He will illustrate some basic usage and show us some exciting advanced features.

2019-04: Proxmox, OpenVAS, NixOS

Bob B discusses the virtualization distribution Proxmox, and the vulnerability scanner OpenVAS. Victor Kofia discusses the Nix programming language, the Nix package manager and the NixOS distribution. Unfortunately, once again we had some A/V issues during the meeting: the recording of the end of Bob's presentation got cut off, and Victor had projector issues. See for additional information, slides and other auxiliary materials.

2019-03: UEFI, Pop!_OS

Chris Irwin presents UEFI (the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) and Jason Eckert discusses Pop!_OS, an Ubuntu remix focusing on developer productivity. Unfortunately, Jason's microphone cut out halfway through his presentation, so we lost a lot of audio. See for additional information, slides and other auxiliary materials.

OpenVAS, NixOS

Meeting Date


Bob B will give us an introduction to OpenVAS, the Open Vulnerability Access Scanner, including how he used Proxmox to set up his demo lab.

Victor Kofia will discuss NixOS and the Nix package manager. Nix takes a declarative approach to systems configurations, and all upgrades/rollbacks are atomic. It bills itself as "the purely functional Linux distribution."
