Nigel showed the video of RepRap, the 3D self-replicating printer: http://reprap.org/wiki/Main_Page

Alice demonstrated Munin, which provides updates every ten minutes of the performance of a server: http://munin-monitoring.org/

and also Damn Vulnerable Web App (DVWA), a php/mysql tool for testing website vulnerabilities. http://www.dvwa.co.uk/

He demonstrated how it could test for a number of vulnerabilities.

Bradford CVS had put forward a number of ideas:

  1. FOSS pieces on Wordpress and wikis which no one felt they could offer
  2. ‘five tipples;’ a personal account of five pieces of software/web resources that people use as an alternative to staight articles. Two people volunteered for this.
  3. putting on a competition among Bradford CVS voluntary organisations to be the guinea pig in a demonstration move from proprietary to FOSS software. People supported this.

We also had a lot of geeky talk and a discussion about the future of the Forum and Website.
