Packet Filtering – April 8th, 2003

A continuation of the Packet filtering talk from Jim Small, also more discussion about the new venue for future meetings, and we’ll be taking up a collection for a friend who we lost a few weeks ago.

A couple of things to take care of at the next meeting:

  1. Most of you should have received the news last week about the loss of one of our long-time members. Glenn Jacobson had been sick with Pneumonia, and he passed away on March 26th. The family had requested that rather than send flowers, we should instead make a donation in Glenn’s name. What we’d like to do is take up a collection at the April meeting, and send a donation to the Free Software Foundation. Glenn was a true believer in Free sofware and Open Source, and I’m sure he’d appreciate that. So, if you have something that you can add to the collection, it would be greatly appreciated.
  2. The main topic at the April meeting will be a continuation of the Packet Filtering talk that Jim Small started at the March meeting. The first part was really interesting, and Jim’s got a great way of explaining how it works, so make sure you are there in April to see the rest of it.
  3. As was announced at the March meeting, the April 8th meeting will be the last meeting at Rosa’s Italian Chop house. Beginning May 13th, we will be meeting at the Farmington Community Library, on 12-mile road, between Orchard Lake and Farmington Road.

Here is the address of the new location:

Farmington Community Library

32737 West 12 Mile Road

Farmington Hills, MI 48334

So, as you can see, we’ve got alot to cover, so make sure you don’t miss it.
