Lots of event notices in here... Watch for what's near you.
The eerielinux site has a followup on Ravenports, which digs into something I've covered a bit here: Ravenports is technically excellent and a better choice than dports in many ways - but Ravenports needs more ports.  How many more?  Probably not very many... Speaking of which: Ravenports is kept vigorously up to date.
