 Subject: This Wed. Gnubies - 
     Authentication with GPG - Ari Jort

 Due to disasters with the user's disk and backup tape at Eskimo North
 everything from June 3 through July 12th has been lost and email couldn't
 be sent out until now. (This is the first major disaster I can recall in
 all the years at Eskimo North.)

 If you know of people who signed up to be on the Gnubies mailing list
 during this time period, please tell them to resubmit their request to be
 put on the mailing list, since their email addresses have been lost.

 Please note security procedures for attending meetings at the IBM building

 This month we are pleased to announce that we have Ari Jort back again by
 popular demand.  At the request of a number of you he will be
 speaking on "Intro to Securing Your Email: Encryption and Authentication
 with GPG."   Ari is one of the few people able to present this subject so
 as to both do it justice and make it comprehensible to Gnubies.

 Ari is known to many of you from previous presentations over the years.
 His clarity and flexibility have led to frequent requests to have him back
 to speak again.  He plans to give an introcudtion to the concepts involved
 in this kind of cruptography and then to proceed to a practical
 discussion show how to set up GPG using (at least) two very different mail
 programs for users.  Ari usually is excellent about questions during the
 presentation.  For more complex questions, that might not be of value to
 everybody, you can join us afterwards to eat, drink or just chat.

 Ari has been using Linux for eight years and until quite recently was a
 software developer for The American Museum of Natural History and will be
 starting a new job in two weeks.  He is also the Vice President of the New
 York Linux Users Group (NYLUG).
