<xHans> moin moin
<Dazed_75> ... or anyone else?  Xorrito?
<xHans> tuxmann covered the PLUG meeting and Stammtisch. Danke!
<tuxmann> Ok great. Thanks for letting me help with the meeting. I haven't seen Xorrito recently.
<xHans> I have a topic for PLUG to add
<xHans> Good Password Verification
<xHans> "A customer's perspective on password verification. Just because the cloud claims
<xHans>  your data is encrypted and password protected doesn't mean it really is."
<tuxmann> No problem xHans!
<xHans> Brian also has a presentation, but I don't yet know what it is
<xHans> his description was ready much earlier, but I didn't get my description to him in time for him to get the announcements out before this mtg

<xHans> and that's it from me
<xHans> Dazed_75: when is the next Ubuntu hour in Tucson?
* xHans doesn't see it in the backscroll
<tuxmann> Have a good night everyone. I'm signing off now & going back to vacation.
* pjdamws has quit (Remote host closed the connection)
<tuxmann> xHans, my notes said it was supposed to be yesterday but I don't know if it happened or not.
<Dazed_75> Should be July 13 but I have no confirmation from Xorrito
<Dazed_75> for the Tucson Ubuntu Hour at bookmans that is.  So there is lots of time to get it confirmed
<Dazed_75> Thats it for me as well.  Off to update the logs.
