07:29 Now we're using our newsserver
Finally we got our newsserver up and running. You can see how to
connect to our newsgroup at

Now we're back on the track - we got another maillist with an awake

03:57 Murphy's Law
If anything can go wrong - it will.
From 18:15 to 21:45 we tried to get a mailserver up and running for
this project - but then we discovered that the primary DNS-server
haven't communicated the host-address mail.ely.dkuug.dk or any other
of the domains and subdomains out to the rest of the DNS-servers all
over the World.
Then we tried to get a newsserver up and running but none of us had ever done that.
With only have 15 minutes to midnight - we used another domain which would host the
mailserver for us and it was up and running i 20 minutes (5 minutes late).

But now we're up and running. You can see the initial
I think we're gonna find out what we're gonna do for
the next 24 hours first.
What material do we want to have in this book.
I think we're this should be included:
- The LUGs of the different contries
- Some graphical illustration of how many Linux users there
are in Europe.
- Info about the companies in Europe using Linux
- Stories from the LUG's - what have we done the last year.
