You don't have to create or modify partitions very often . . . but it's best to know how to do it in case you need to.

Our October meeting details are fully set. We'll be meeting on Saturday, October 22nd, at the Telnyx offices located at 311 W Superior St, Suite 504, Chicago, IL 60654.

Rob Dux will kick things off with a lightning talk about Telnyx engineering, but our main speakers will be both Bonnie King ( a sysadmin at Fermilab ) and Matthew Garrett. Yes, that guy. Yes, we're excited, too.

This is le shitty.
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Microsoft-Signature-PC-No-Linux Lately I've heard a few reports of some newer PCs being less than friendly with Linux, namely a number of Lenovo devices who have issues with installing Linux. Based upon new information that's come to light from a Phoronix reader, it appears that PCs receiving Microsoft's "Signature Edition" tag are being locked-out from running non-Windows platforms.

Specific details are still in the works, but Matthew Garrett is scheduled to speak at ChicagoLUG on Saturday, 10/22:

"Securing computers from highly skilled attackers"

"The modern world keeps giving us demonstrations of governments finding new and exciting ways to spy on computers. It's unlikely that you'll be the target of any of this surveillance, but where governments start, criminals probably won't be too far behind. We'll talk about some of the more unsettling attacks seen in the past few years, but also discuss some of the things normal users can do to protect against them."

Well have the full meeting announcement within the week.
