December 9th meeting date. Therefore we'll be meeting over at Unallocated
Space that night and taking part in their open house and lock picking
night, presented by Toool. We'll learn how locks work and how to pick them.

servers and Apache, and then will cover Apache basics, configuration and
troubleshooting tips, the basics of rewrite rules and forward proxies,
securing your site, and using Apache as a load balancer.  The discussion
will also briefly cover using openssl to create SSL certificates, and, if
time allows, making Apache highly available using keepalived.
