Software movement and the GNU/Linux OS.

The IIT campus is very accessible via public transportation.  A few 
minutes walk from the 35th St. green and red line stops, as well as the 
State Street bus.

Following this, the Chicago G/LUG is getting together at Argo Tea for a 
mini hack meeting.  Free wifi and great drinks will be had, and everyone 
is cordially invited to join us and dive into some code; there is no 
structured plan for this meeting.

At 3p on the same day, there is a Chicago G/LUG meeting at our usual 
location.  Topics of presentation will be:

* Linux Internals: The Linux Kernel Scheduler (Tristan Sloughter)
* rPath/Conary: An Introduction into rPath and Conary (Kevin Harriss)
* A Few Lines of Ruby: General Ruby Practices, by example (Evan Farrar)
agenda: http://www.chicagolug.org/Agenda_2006-11-04

Our meeting is generously supported by rPath and the FSF.  We'll be 
giving away some free gifts from both organizations.  For more

Happy Hacking!
