Re: computer problems

Thinking about it, it was halfway through an Ubuntu install the other day and whoever I was in the action room with said it was being left for someone to come in and finish it (can't remember who, in either case).

If it's still like that, should I finish the install?

I've got a livecd sat right here and will be heading to forest for opening, so I'll have a look if you want.

Re: geek meet/workshop evening!

Was there ever any progress with this?

Is it something that people would still like to sort?

I am up for trying to co-ordinate stuff if people are happy.

Re: both cave keys missing

Argh, the non-relative links, they hurt my eyes! Seriously, though, it looks like PHP, for whatever reason, is unable to read the top_random file anymore. It may be that its HTTP transport has been turned off for whatever reason, or that an apache or php config file has changed (nothing to do with u...

No idea about the key kept in the crafty room, but I was the one who gave Emma the key from the drawer (she turned up and told me she was booked in, so I assumed she was a member. Nix: We need to get membership cards sorted ASAP) and I'll wager it's probably locked inside (a band did this last week ...

Small team effort I reckon would be best. This seemed to work pretty well (even though I can't claim any credit other than providing the adaptor, as I was pretty busy.

Re: Network Security

Our previous wireless router is still in the action room, I think. It's a D-Link DSL-604+. What you'd probably want to do is set that up with the old connection settings (SSID "forest", unencrypted), have it do DHCP+NAT on that wireless network, and assign it a static IP on the wire. Then...

Re: Network Security

Do we have a second AP we can use as well? My reasoning: We suddenly switch the AP over to use a WEP password of "forest" and put a notice up. Not everyone will see/understand the notice. People with autoconnecting Wifi setups will be puzzled. Kitchen vollies suddenly get lots of people co...

5:30-6:30ish would be better for me, as I'm more likely to be awake (meds are playing havoc with my sleeping patterns atm) but I can make earlier if it's more convenient for you.

Re: Network Security

*reads up on WEP as it has been a while* ah yes, true, which would then leave a man-in-the-middle style attack as the next requirement to sniff traffic (assumedly they'd use the same SSID as the forest's AP which would only be picked up on as a security issue by savvy users)? Correct. And even then...

Re: Network Security

Do we think that this is a potential threat at Forest? If so, is it feasible to encrypt the network and make the key available somewhere obvious (paint it on the wall or whatever)? The encryption need only be WEP, it matters not that the security is pants, as the aim is not to stop anyone connectin...
