Darn it. I installed Steam on Linux a few days too soon. The official
release was yesterday with games on sale and an updated games list.

Mr. Bucy,  Would you be kind enough to take me off the SATLUG mailing 
list.  Thankyou very much.

Hi Don!

I don't have any experience with 3d printing myself, but I did see a really
cool 3d printer at an XCSSA (http://xcssa.org/) meeting once.  The guy who
built it was very friendly and didn't mind answering everyone's questions.
Also, I hear that 10bitworks (http://www.10bitworks.com/) has a 3d printer
in-house that members can use.  I haven't been there, but a lot of the guys
I met at XCSSA go to 10bitworks to work on their projects.

Good luck!
-Doug

Hello,

For those that don't use Ubuntu and don't want to download the .deb :
http://spot.fedorapeople.org/steam/steam.repo

Pretty easy to install and set up. The only complaint is Team Fortress 2
had a slight issue with Open GL Ext texture compression. But that is an
easy fix.. Happy 'Tux Pwning ^.^

Greetings,

   Thanks for the suggestions about security on a home server. I see 
that one thing people do is use non-standard ports.
I have done that myself, but get the feeling that it's just security 
through obfuscation and does nothing more than put a little hurdle in 
the way of a cracker, and increases complexity. So what do you think: is 
this worthwhile as a security measure?

Thanks,

Frank Huddleston

I am the wrong person for this task.  But these guys should be able to help
you out with that.

Its common practice to change ports, especially SSH.

I think it goes back to "security is a process, not a product." In other
words many layers of security are needed to create a "secure" server, and
obfuscation is indeed one layer (albeit a thin one). At most you will stop
some script-kiddies, but honestly, unless you consider yourself a high
priority target for hackers, then your biggest concern is script-kiddies.
