New course: LaTeX

Isabelle is running a new course on the courses mailing list, on the LaTeX markup language. The LaTeX course's homepage is http://www.isabelle-hurbain.com/repository/latex/courses.

Chix at Conferences

A new section of the site is devoted to organising LinuxChix meetings at conferences. Visit Chix at Conferences to register a conference you are attending, or to find other Chix attending that conference.

Python course starting.

A Python course is starting on the courses list on the 1st July. Python is a multi-platform scripting and programming language suitable for beginners. There will be no schedule, the speed of the course will be determined by the participants.

C courses restarting.

The C course formerly running on the courses list is restarting as a discussion of topics in C, by learners and by helpers! See this post to courses for more details, and join the courses mailing list to be a part of it.

List archives rebuilt.

The list archives are finally all on the one server -- for a long time, the LinuxChix list archives have been spread across three hosts. Many thanks to Terri for her work on this, it's been on everyone's 'to do, later' list for ages.

EuroChix

A volunteers list for EuroChix, which will be a web community for European LinuxChix, has begun. You can subscribe using the web interface if you want information or are interested in helping out.

BSDChix forms

A new BSDChix special interest chapter of LinuxChix has formed for Chix interested in the BSD UNIX variants. Send a mail to BSDChix-subscribe@yahoogroups.com to subscribe.

RBL filtering for LinuxChix mail

The LinuxChix hosts have subscribed to the Realtime Blackhole List. If your mail to linuxchix.org addresses is being bounced, ask another member to forward us a mail explaining you have a problem, or investigate why you are on the RBL and how to be removed from it.

Status report

LinuxChix is entirely in our hands now. The domain has been transferred, and two other Chix know the domain password in case something happens to me. DNS problems should not exist. Mail should be fine. I'm planning today to write software to make the web-volunteers' lives easier, as well: so there should be more frequent updates to the web pages soon.
