What happened in December?
The hacker's gastronomic delight of three large pizzas from
We enjoyed the cuisine with an especially fine year of
Coca-Cola in the head offices of Cyber-Technologies International
amidst a herd of over a half-dozen Linux machines.

- pineapple and canadian bacon
Linux heaven! The CTI head offices with Linux machines
coming out of the walls.
Crazed Members Present

Summary of events
Linux machines on the Internet! This was one of the
best meetings yet. We got Rainer's machine hooked up with
PPP and configured his X-Windows for a higher resolution.
Nori showed an awesome knowledge of XF86Config.
Rainer also won a game of Spider during the meeting. Amazing!
We ran Doom II on Linux. It works. Due to the access to the
net we had, everyone tested out some cool tools including,
Mosaic, Netscape, X-FTP, and TCPdump. We also experimented
with displaying a remote Mosaic session on a local X-Window.
We first used Rainer's home office machine which was some
15 hops away and got the thing to run over a serial line
using PPP. We then moved onto a Linux machine on a 64K
leased line and of course got better results.
Among other things, we also demonstrated the 3-D modelling
tool, geomview. Rainer gave a short demo on configuring
fvwm to make maximum use of keystroke commands.
