  [OxLUG people are welcome to come to this Compsoc talk.]
  [If you've been to OxLUG meetings in the Comlab before,
   note that you need to use a different entrance, and the
   car park is no longer usable.]

From: Will Thompson <president at ox.compsoc.net>

On Monday, we have Jon Masters from Red Hat talking about the modular
nature of the Linux kernel; in particular, how this helps make porting
the kernel to new platforms easy.  This should be an accessible talk,
despite the subject matter, so don't feel put off if you're unfamiliar
with kernel programming and so on. 

Venue: Comlab, room 051
Date: Monday 23rd October
Time: 20.00

http://oxford.openguides.org/wiki/?Computing_Laboratory has some
information about Comlab (in case you're not familiar with it).  There
is a door into the basement to the left of the door into the main
reception, which we will be using.

Also, some of you might be interested to know that LinuxWorld Expo is in
London on Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th next week.  (In fact, this is
why Jon is able to speak to us next week despite living in the US!)  I
know that a few Compsoccers are going along.  It's fairly
enterprise-focused (although there is an area of non-corporate stands),
but should be fun.  Entry is _free_ if you register on the Expo
website[0] by midnight _today_, so act quickly!  You don't have to go to
both days, or all of either day.

(Yay, I've just noticed that the Tux Games people will be there.)
