Note, for those of you who have offered to do a tutorial on other
topics, don't worry, I've got your offer in the 'presentation' folder.
I think Dow's got a good point here in doing a shell tutorial at this
time. We've had other folks offer to do presentations on ssh, apache,
dvd burning, sendmail, mailman, ssh.

Bob's offered to do a tcsh tutorial, but I'd suspect we need a bash
tutorial for the new folks. Wouldn't hurt the elders either. :) I'm a
ksh'er myself, any bash'ers out there would would like to do a mini bash
howto at the June meeting?

I like it, maybe Dwayne can share his dual boot issues.

Again, any takers???

You know I'm always game there.

I didn't have to buy my radio from a specific company to listen
to FM, why doesn't that apply to the Internet (anymore...)?
