KWLUG members will give a number of quick (30 minute or less) demonstrations of assorted Linux goodies.
- Richard Weait will answer the question: "What Linux Distro Should I Use?"
- Rob Day will give a whirlwind tour of the steps involved in compiling kernels.
- John van Ostrand will give a presentation about DSL and houshold telephone wiring. He writes: "The presentation will be a brief discussion of the typical household telephone wiring and how to work with it with regards to DSL. I'll cover a few different termination blocks (demarc points) and how to work with them. I'll talk about the tools used to work with telephony lines. I'll talk about how houses are wired and how to alter that wiring to put a DSL filter on the whole household."
- Paul will give an introduction to GNU Screen, a program which manages multiple command-line windows effectively. Paul will cover basic usage and some configuration tricks like title bars and automatic window labelling that make Screen much more informative (and pleasant) to use.
