January 2017 PLUG Meeting: VPN & TOR: THIS MONDAY
This coming Monday...
VPN & TOR
Jason Wallwork will be introducing the basics of using a VPN client or a Tor client within the Tails linux distribution. Using a VPN and/or a Tor client is a powerful way of protecting your privacy and anonymity online. Tails is a live Linux distribution that includes the TOR client and leaves no traces behind after you use it on a computer. However, you can easily download and install Tor inside any Linux distribution (or Windows or Mac).
Date: Monday, January 2, 2017 - 7 PM
The raffle has been discontinued. However, you can still get a free book of your choice from O'Reilly by writing a short review afterward. Use the contact form if you'd like to do that.
Membership, although voluntary, is encouraged. Membership fees cover our room rental costs and any surplus is used to treat members during the Christmas Pizza party. A membership is only $25 a year, a fee that hasn't changed since 2000. You can pay via cheque, cash or Paypal. Membership also gives you the opportunity to review Linux-related or other computer books, and bragging rights.
We have a Linux magazine swap at each meeting. Bring in recent Linux magazines (within the last year) to trade with or give to other members.
Location: Applewood Manor
1500 Lansdowne Street West, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.
Parking is on the east (right) side. Entrance is at the front of the building. From the front, go down the hall to the right, and enter the last door on the left.
After the meeting, everyone is invited to Tim Horton's on MONAGHAN ROAD (just a stone's throw north of Lansdowne). They have free wireless along with their treats and refreshments.
Hope you can make it!
Note: PLUG MUG nights continue every MONDAY night except the week of a regular PLUG meeting (as long as there is interest). Please check the forums for the weekly sign-up list.
