TechHui

Hawaiʻi's Technology Community

These are just some semi-random topics of discussion some might find valuable as a presentation or group discussion.

 

Multimedia in Linux: MP3 and DVD ripping, burning, and playback

Gaming in Linux: Wine, TransGaming, Native, nVidia/ATI, OpenGL, etc.

Introduction to Emacs

Introduction to the Android SDK (for programmers)

Popular Linux hacking tools: nmap, Wireshark, Nessus, Metasploit

Pretty Good Privacy...so good it's illegal in some countries: E-mail encryption with gnupg and Enigmail add-on for Thunderbird

Virtualization, because it's in style: Virtualbox, VMWare, XEN, Win4Lin

The Worst Web Page in the Universe: a quick and dirty LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl/PHP) stack on your laptop

WYSIWYG: KDE, Gnome, and the "others"

 

I was thinking a managable format would be a one-hour presentation supported by projection and handwritten board, followed by Q/A and group discussion, ultimately degrading into Gnome vs. KDE flamefests.

OK, LUG Nuts, here is a survey to see which of the suggested topics has the most interest.  We can plan to most popular one for July 30 (last Saturday of odd-numbered months), 9-9:45 BS-ing and troubleshooting assistance; 9:45-10:30 for a presentation.

Already filled out and submitted mine.  By the way, that was the coolest Google Form I've ever seen!  How did you do that?
The eye candy is just the "Digital" theme applied to a Google Form ;)

So far, it's a toss up for July:  Virtualization or PGP.  If anyone else hits the survey, I'll check back.  John - take your pick, looks like you're our July speaker either way. ;) 

 

(We can decide on the September topic in person at the July meeting)

Aloha! Sorry been out of the loop this past week or so. I'm happy to teach PGP - it's probably the quickest, easiest thing to teach that people can use immediately and use as a basis for future discussion.
I'd be okay with that.  Privacy was my other choice anyway.  The description "so good it's illegal in some countries" sold me.
Sweet.  Let's plan on it.  Let me know if you want a projector.
