		Alex will give a brief presentation about running the

		The firewall component will be applicable to all Linux
		systems, so anyone who is interested in learning where

		Pascal is going to talk about the Gimp

		enormous repertoire of options to create and edit 2D

		some basics ranging from the layout, and the tools, thus
		helping you with your next little artistic idea, adding
		some more gimpers to the pool.
