i like this idea, but the bottleneck is getting someone to volunteer the
teaching. organizing the thing and coming up with volunteers would be
the thing that kills this idea.
i think this was the point of the 10-20 minute talk thing i wanted to do
at lugod meetings. we had a few of them. maybe we should start to make
them an integral part of the lugod meeting. i can certainly do this
bill. it's easier to ask someone to talk for 10 minutes than for 1.5
i think 10-20 minutes is short enough that the prep time is pretty nill.
10 minutes goes by very quickly when giving a talk.
i can give a 10 minute talk on marks and registers in vi which would be
a nice complement to verbus's presentation. i can also give a 10 minute
talk on using strace, although mike would be more suited for this. i
don't know quite as much about strace as mike, but i definitely know
enough for it to be useful for me. i just used it last night to figure
out where quakeforge was looking for the pak0.pak and pak1.pak files.
strace comes in handy for me about once a week, and is an integral part
of my kung-fu.
