Isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?

Tomorrow at the solar-powered Felton Fire Station at 1 p.m., the Felton Linux Users Group is holding its monthly meeting, and we’re having a speak from Canonical coming to talk to us.

As one of the founders of the group and usually the one who kicks off the meeting and introduces guest speakers, I get to introduce him to the group before he speaks.

It’s a free ride when you already paid. Anyway, it should be fun.

Meanwhile, some of you may have had my Lavabit address — I had a Lavabit account and used it for CrunchBang/FOSS related e-mails. Of course, you probably heard by now about how Ladar Levison took the site down for reasons he can’t talk about, but are somewhat tied to his protecting the privacy of the 350,000 users on Lavabit (one of whom, reportedly, was an Edward Snowden, of NSA contractor fame).

I’m currently looking for a replacement.

So tomorrow, watch for the weekly Larry the Free Software Guy tome. It’ll be here, right on time.
