Texas Linux Fest - Spread the word: registration now open!

Hi all,

We're thrilled to announce that registration is now officially open!  Just visit http://register.texaslinuxfest.org to get started.

We have two ticket levels -- both include full access to the program, expo floor, and evening events.  The supporter ticket is for those who can afford it, and helps underwrite the cost of putting on the event; that's $40 and in addition to the all-access pass you get the official Texas Linux Fest t-shirt and the conference bag.  The enthusiast level ticket is for people who just can't swing full price, it's $15, and doesn't include either item.  But, as mentioned, you still get to attend the talks and the booths.

If you've been waiting, browse right over and dust off your keyboard, because this is your chance.  Thanks to the hard work of our friends at SCALE and the always-helpful Paypal, we're using Paypal's Payflow process to handle payments, so we can accept VISA, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover. You do not need a Paypal account!

Absolutely! - http://www.texaslinuxfest.org/participate/

That gives a little information and links to the wiki (and a more specific link would be - http://wiki.texaslinuxfest.org/wiki/Volunteers).  Feel free to let me know if you have any questions!

Cheers,
Jeremy

Re: Texas Linux Fest - Spread the word: registration now open!

I used to be an Audio/Visual director at a hotel in San Antonio back  
in the late 90s. Would that be useful? I saw you needed someone to  
help with that on the wiki.

I would like to see a presentation on building a IPv6 tunnel into a openwrt router!


Every day we are getting close to running out of IPv4 addresses.

Eventually, like it or not, we will be forced to go to IPv6.

Some adventurous souls would like to try out IPv6 before it gets here.

Unfortunately, most ISP do not support using IPv6 at this time.

So people write documents like this one explaining how to
get IPv6 by going around your ISP using a tunnel.

http://www.debian-administration.org/article/Running_IPv6_in_practice

I was thinking openwrt gives you control of your router, so you could
probably build the IPv6 tunnel into your router, making your whole
lan think it had a native IPv6 connection.

If someone could figure out how to do this, they could come and give
a presentation to alg!

Furthermore they could document the whole process.

Maybe they could work with some of the technical writers that came
to the last alg meeting, to degeekify the documentation! Maybe they
could put the documentation on the OpenWrt web site and become wealthy
and famous!

Re: I would like to see a presentation on building a IPv6 tunnel into a openwrt router!

Hey,

The writers group is being a bit neglected by me this week as I have
some personal matters going on.  However, this is great focus...

I can bring a few routers and we can do a in-room demo.  i can even
bring in dd-wrt as a second option on it.

February 18?  Fallback of February 25?

Hi,

...just adding a few more nits to pick... ;-)

It got here 10 years ago (I did some course work about it in university).
Now people are starting to realize that there actually IS an elephant in
the room... ;-)

> Unfortunately, most ISP do not support using IPv6 at this time.

I conduct a little experiment over here in Germany: every six months I
walk around town and enter every ISP shop I see and ask about IPv6
support. A few weeks ago it was the very first time that someone even knew
what I was talking about, but his answer was still "sorry, not supported
yet".

I wonder what ISPs in Texas would say.

Unfortunately the described HE setup seems to require a fixed IP address.

A few more:
http://silmor.de/62

My experience:
*single laptop travelling around: use Miredo
*network with fixed IP: 6to4
*always-on network with dynamic IP: SixXS
*sporadically-on network: commercial providers (eg. HE)

http://kamikaze.openwrt.org/docs/openwrt.html#x1-80001.2.1
A basic 6to4/6in4 tunnel.

Or: https://www.sixxs.net/wiki/Aiccu/Installing_on_OpenWRT
SixXS network access.

Have fun.

Yes please!

If you need some input to IPv6 in general:
http://silmor.de/57 (slides link is at the very bottom of the page) - feel
free to modify/use the slides or any other material from my site.
