[ale] Topic for next ALE NW meeting June 16th

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.

Are they up to taking on more of a presence in the meetings?

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?

Any takers?

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

Again, any takers???

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...)?
