Hi Jonas,

If we can find time on Wednesday (tomorrow) to wipe my DebianParl Pilot laptop and test the one I have borrowed from the EP, Max could start from scratch with this machine. I think it is number 2 of the ten, will check!

Sorry for top-posting! :-)

Hi Max and Liu,

Welcome to DebianParl!

The pilot laptops are for trusted computing, and therefore strictly
personal: They should not be lend out.

Erik has a spare laptop borrowed from the EP, with DebianParl installed,
but it is not tested thoroughly, and I am uncertain if the EP permits
Erik to lend out that laptop.

For the workshop Thursday you have these options:

 a) Install DebianParl on some other laptop (or borrow Erik's)
 b) Install needed software pieces on top of an existing system
 c) Watch while the rest of us have fun

NB! Any installation/tuning must be done *before* the meeting!

This is the software needed (might work even on Windows or Mac):

  * Thunderbird (email client) - http://www.mozilla.org/thunderbird/
  * GnuPG (crypto tool) - https://www.gnupg.org/download/
  * Enigmail (email crypto plugin) - https://enigmail.net/download/

The guide at https://enigmail.net/documentation/quickstart-ch1.php might
help, but if uncertain I recommend you to take time to meet with me
Wednesday afternoon/night to check that the software works properly:
Reach me by mail or sms (cellphone number is in the email footer).

I can offer to meet Wednesday afternoon/night and help install either
DebianParl or tools on top of another system.  Reach me by mail or sms
(cellphone number is in the email footer) if that's relevant.

Looking forward to meet you Thursday - or maybe already Wednesday,

 - Jonas


At last meeting I brought and offered to lend out my prototype laptop
(I'd then reset the system afterwards).  I did not bring that laptop
tThis time, however, since I want to travel light when hitch-hiking back
