Well I wasn't nay saying by any means. Just trying to correct what I
think I meant to say. Really I'm up for anything that people want to
hear. And I agree with your statement in regards to the
voip/mythtv-type talks as being the most successful and interesting ones
But I can tell from the near deafening silence that people would
probably respond better to a multiple choice list as we have done in the
past. Perhaps we should start a fresh one.
1. Package Management -- what it is, why it matters and how it is
handled by several popular distributions. (beginner to
2. Intro to Free Software on Linux/GNU Systems -- a look at popular
software packages and an even briefer look at how to use them.
3. The Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) Protocol -- Open standards that
are platform-, OS- and programming-language-independent. Used for
networking consumer electronics among other things. A practical
example being how to play your music that is stored on your PC
through your stereo (in addition to internet-based radio
stations!). Another example would be viewing photos or videos
from the PC on your TV. (beginner topic)
4. <--- your topic here --->
Can anyone suggest others?

some way! ;)
Looking forward to an interesting series of meetings this year folks.
