We are pleased to announce that Alex Hajnal will be speaking at the next
GNUbies meeting this Wednesday, November 13, 2002.  He will be speaking
about permissions for GNU/Linux and other Unix-like operating systems.  For
real beginners this includes how to help protect yourself from your own
mistakes while playing around or attempting things you don't know how to

Alex is a programmer and system administrator at New York Internet Center.
He started programming in 1982 when he first got his first computer, a
TRS-80, and then, over the years, gravitated towards Unix-like systems.
The first true Unix system he used was Solaris in 1992 and he first
installed Linux in 1995.  In his current job he administers BSDi, Linux and
Solaris boxes as well as Win 2000 boxes and does a lot of backend and
internet applications programming, mostly in Perl.  When he's working his
interests include computer security and wireless applications.  When not
working he enjoys photography, 20th century antiques, vintage computers and
1920s music.
