   sf-lug meets again this sunday, july 7, from 11 AM 
to 1 PM (or so) at the javacat cafe on geary blvd at 
20th ave in san francisco. 

   there will be books for give-away to those who 
are good: 
* Running Xen by Jessica Matthews, et al (prentice hall) 
* Sams Teach Yourself PHP, MySQL, and Apache ALL in One 
   by Julie Meloni (Sams) 

   for your inspection pleasure there will be a 
ZaReason Ultralap laptop as well as a ZaReason 
Ubuntu 8.04 EEE PC laptop. 

   there will be a test: who can figure out how 
to get the EEE PC to connect to the wifi: the EEE 
PC will connect to a wifi access point that has 
no password, but it will not connect to at least 
a few access points that are password protected. 
   one test question is how to detect what type 
of password the access point requires (64 or 128 
bit, WEP or WPA{,2}, ASCII or hex or "binary", 
...?). Possible with iwlist or iwconfig or some 
other command-line utility?
