Re: DSL and Linux

Verizon supplied us with a new westell modem (not sure of the model) but 
it turns out we have static Ip's so all that needed to be done was give 
ipcop the ip,gateway,mask,etc.. and we were up in no time. I would recommend
ipcop to anyone needing an easy to set up router/firewall. The installation
is simple and once its in place its rock solid. Its basically a stripped down
linux distro with a web interface for management.

OpenOffice.Org on the go.


I was looking at Iomega's site and saw this:

http://www.iomega-activedisk.com/servlet/moonshine/goto?page_url=/ 
titles/title_detail.jsp&title_id=153&referrer=com_openoffice111303

This is a free download of OpenOffice.Org 1.1 from Iomega that will run  
directly off an iomega zip disk using Active disk  
(http://www.iomega-activedisk.com/landing.jsp).

Looks like it could be kinda cool.

Sure, go ahead.

Yes, the July 1998 MSDN cd set (cd 2) included the office 97 binary format
specification, this was on the microsoft MSDN website for a year or so as well.
The format is a backwards compatable one, i.e. office 2000 opens in office 97
so the current format is essentially the same as the 97, except with
extensions. There were some ommissions from the format, some cases of bugs
which are not captured by the format and a good bit of ambiguity as to the
meaning of some sections, but it was a great aid. You can still get it

Saturday ... July 3rd


I am thinking that I am going to go down to the Moose on saturday, July 
3rd ... Say around 2 o'clock and hang out for a while. Work with some 
zope zites, play tetrinet, whatever.

Its just been too long since there has been anything resembling a 
meeting. If anyone wants to come down and gab about Free software, 
speech, creative common's, linux, hurd, Free software on windows/Mac 
... whatever, i'll be there till at least 3. I'll hang around longer if 
people show up by then, all night if there is an interest in discussing 
stuff. ;-)

I'm not even sure who is in town right now, But I would like to discuss 
strategies with the group for the coming school year that we can use to 
promote Free Software around town at some point before the fall 
semester starts.

Mike.

I’m sorry, I will be out of town this weekend although I’m free next
weekend. I hope others who are around make it to the Moose and please
post minutes of the discussion :)

Thanks, Mike, again sorry I can’t be there.

Thanks for taking the initiative on this, I'll do my best to attend.  
I'm not 100% sure I can make it on the 3rd, but anytime next week after 
the 6th should be good for me.

Arrgh... I may be *lucky* to get out of work by 4. More likely closer to
5. :( I'll try, but I'm better off sending my regrets now.
