The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, November 13.  The meeting topic for this month is as 

    Build an IP Captive Portal from Scratch
   (For Fun and Education, but Not for Profit)

    Love 'em or hate 'em, captive portals are widely used to restrict
    Internet access to authorized users. What if you need to set one
    up, but all the "canned" solutions aren't quite right for your use
    case? This presentation by Gilbert Detillieux will show you the
    various components that make up a captive portal, and how you can
    set one up from scratch, using Linux Netfilter/iptables, the
    Apache web server, ISC DHCPD and BIND, and some custom back-end

    RTFM: date

    The lowly date(1) command has been a fixture of UNIX systems
    from the very early days. Yet there may be features in this
    command that would surprise you. Adam Thompson will present this

The group holds its 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.
