The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, November 8.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   Migrating to IPv6

   This is your chance to try out IPv6 without having to set up a
   tunnel. Presenter Mark Jenkins will bring a wireless access
   point and provide auto-discoverable, IPv6-only access to
   everyone at the meeting, with real public addresses. (He'll use
   a tunnel for upstream). So, bring your laptops and other
   portables... the more platforms the merrier!

   After seeing who is and isn't able to use the connection, and
   what's actually out there in the cold world of IPv6-only
   addresses, Mark will present some basic theory, show how to do
   static configuration on GNU/Linux, and reflect on how the
   transition to IPv6 could play out.

   Time permitting, the challenge of witting reverse DNS entries
   with the aid of the $ORIGIN keyword in BIND will be
   demonstrated, and the ease of configuring the route
   advertisement daemon in use for the demonstration shown.

   Plus, this month's meeting is the MUUG annual general meeting,
   which includes the election of the MUUG board of directors for
   the 2011-2012 year, as well as a vote on a special resolution
   to amend the MUUG by-laws. (Members: Check your newsletter for

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   Please note our meeting location: The IBM offices, at 400 Ellice Ave.
   (between Edmonton and Kennedy). When you arrive, you will have to
   sign in at the reception desk, and then wait for someone to take you
   (in groups) to the meeting room. Please try to arrive by about 7:15pm, 
   so the meeting can start promptly at 7:30pm. Don't be late, or you may
   not get in.  (But don't come too early either, since security may not
   be there to let you in before 7:15 or so.) Non-members may be required
   to show photo ID at the security desk.

   Limited parking is available for free on the street, either on Ellice
   Ave. or on some of the intersecting streets. Indoor parking is also
   available nearby, at Portage Place, for $5.00 for the evening. Bicycle
   parking is available in a bike rack under video surveillance located
   behind the building on Webb Place.
