Holiday Party Details
  • Please try to attend the party if you can so we can have a decent turnout - guests (and newcomers) are more than welcome as we won't get technical
  • Potlock - plan on eating a lot of food, we'll send out a mailing list thread to help coordinate who is planning to bring what dishes so we don't end up with all PB&J sandwiches
  • We will be breaking out a few adult themed board games (Urban Dictionary The Game, Exploding Kittens, Cards Against Humanity) - be ready for some shenanigans!
  • We might bust out some Linux Trivia
  • The main activity will be a White Penguin Gift Exchange
    • Dig through your closet and find some kind of FUNNY tech gadget or gift to exchange and wrap it up. Don't buy anything new - the point is to re-gift something you already own. Old junk can be good for a laugh too if someone gets stuck with a 90lb server or an 8088.
    • Everyone will get a number and we'll draw a gifts in sequence with the ability to 'steal' if a person before you has something cool that you can't live without.
    • We'll have a few extra gifts for guests - so help us by bringing more than one if you can't decide what to give because you have so much awesomeness in your basement that you don't use any more.
Upcoming Topics
  • Computer Security - Special Guest Speaker
    • Our October meeting topic about Kali Linux 2.0 went pretty well and we'd like to continue the conversation by diving deeper into some more of the tools
    • We'll also look at some professional gear that can be acquired for security purposes
    • Penetration testing, ethical hacking, general computer security conversations
