Body: Fought wireless... it was a draw. Realized there aren't enough games installed on my laptop. Exercised proficiency in ssh tunnelling. Upgraded to Evolution 2.0.0 (now in Debian experimental - but it's back to the "evolution" package instead of "evolution1.5").

Body: Spent the better part of the beginning of the meeting getting better wifi access up. Our normal space was again occupied, and many folks couldn't reach the net from the alterate space. Finally borrowed a second card from aw, and set up my internal card as an AP and his card to link to the AP. Tried to figure out WDS, but there isn't really enough information to fully understand it. Moved this web site to the new community machine, which should be a fair bit faster than my private machine that it was on. Also imported JOTWeb2 into the arch version control system, finally seem to have had success with it.
