  from="official GNUbies announcement">

We are pleased to announce that Randy Wright will be speaking at our
September 2002 GNUbies meeting on "Networking and Security for GNUbies"
this Wednesday, September 4th.  This month's meeting is being held one week
early to avoid meeting on September 11th.  We will subsequently return to
our regular schedule of meeting on the second Wednesday of each month.  I
hope this schedule change doesn't inconvenience you.

Randy is a senior developer at New York University who has been using
GNU/Linux since 1992.  His previous talk at GNUbies in March of 2000 was
extremely well received and many people have requested that we have hime
back to speak at one of our meetings again.  We are fortunate to have him
back for our September meeting this coming Wednesday, September 4th.  You
can see the details below.  As usual IBM is generously providing us with
the space for our meeting.  Please note the security procedures required for
attending meetings at IBM below.

After the meeting we generally go out together to continue talking over
