  • Lately we have been plagued by Wiki spammers - I have therefore restricted editing to a number of IP ranges (including wur.nl and xs4all.nl). Test your IP by editing the JunkPage and hit 'Save'. If your IP does not work send me a note. In principle the Wiki is open for editing to anyone - as long as it is related to our context (Pjotr)

  • We will definitely repeat this event, only next time in a somewhat more structured manner (limited number of tickets), and are thinking about organizing workshops and seminars about various themes ("linux for beginners" for instance) as well. There is apparently a great demand for this kind of help, and we would like to invite everyone interested in attending a course or seminar to add his/her name and favorite subject(s) to the list of RequestedSubjects.
