I have no idea how to do stuff :-(  Apparently I've now got full
priviledges over everything (short of shell access to xbox) but
Postnuke seems unnecessarily complicated to do simple things.

(IMNSHO Plug would be better served with flat HTML pages which would
look uglier but be easier for people to find information on and for us
to edit--but that's another issue again.  Or maybe Postnuke is okay
when you get used to it...)

Bernard and I have Postnuke admin rights.  Bernard has root on xbox.
Mark Gaynor and yourself /should/ have some kind of access, too.

Presumably the Tuesday seminar.  Neither the Monday workshop nor the
Tuesday seminar for this month have been added to the calendar on the
web site.

Kind of.  If someone could give me a blurb suitable for putting up on
the calendar, I could add it.  For the moment I've just put up this
month's second Tuesday and fourth Monday events with generic-ish text
copied from previous meetings.  I've also mentioned Plaka; the wording
is shamelessly stolen off an email from Daniel back in February.
