I've invented an alternative to cdrecord/wodim/burncd, naming it "Spiegel".
It's a completely new program, owing nothing to those previous utilities.
Attached is LxSpieg.tar.gz, containing the Source Code for Linux plus a
README. A FreeBSD version is possible too, but the Linux version works better.
Hope you like the Wildebeest License.

I was wondering if we could get a feel for how many people are
interested in attending an August meeting.
If you remember, we didn't have a meeting in August last year because
a lot of people tend to go on holiday or have other plans while the
weather is hot and it's the school holidays etc.
Please reply if you would be interested and we'll go from there.
If there isn't one in August then we will obviously resume on the 2nd
Monday of September.
A friend of mine has an image that he would like blown up to be put
onto some huge boards/canvas things.
In order for this to work the resolution of the image needs to be
increased a lot.
Does anybody know much about how that would be done?
Coming up to the 2nd Monday of the month so if we could get the usual
list of who's hoping to attend the next meeting...
July's meeting is a social meeting at venue below.
The main thing on the agenda at the moment is alternative venues, but
I'm sure that we will all bring our random hats with us too.
#Can Attend In Person
#Not this time
I’m after a bit of advice on samba shares in an MS domain.
We’ve got a Ubuntu LTS 10.04 server integrated into a windows domain with
I’m struggling to successfully share a dir with samba and AD auth though.
Have you got any experience with this?
The likewise bit works well, I can log into the ubuntu box with
domain\username and password
I see the machine name in "network" in Win7 but when I double click on it I
repeatedly get prompted to log in.
First Wednesday of the month tomorrow, and it's GeekUp 
We meet 7.30pm at The Lodge, Alsager, ST7 2JA
Hope to see a few of you there :)

I realise this isn't strictly Linux-related (unless you count that all
the hardware I list has been used for various Linux testing stuff) but
I'm having a clear out to free up some money and because I realised I
don't need the stuff like I once did
Therefore I'm looking to sell the following hardware and figured I'd
offer it to 'local' people/friends at a more favourable price before I
put it on eBay and get the most I can for it.
1. Axis M1011 IP Camera (£90 ono)
IP Camera which was used for about a month when developing some
footfall counting software at work.
With AC adapter. Not boxed.
2. o2 Joggler (£50 ono)
Touch screen tablet device bought to run Linux and become part of a
home automation system. Never found the time to get into this and
unlikely to have time in the foreseeable future.
Boxed with all original peripherals afaik.

3. 2 x Dell Latitude C610 laptops (individually or as a lot) £80 each

spare battery somewhere. (these babies can accept a 2nd battery in the
4. Asus EEE PC 904HD Netbook (£100 ono)
