Hi Bill:

USENIX is holding its Security Symposium starting July 31 in Baltimore. 
 Given tonight's meeting topic, could you please help us get the word 
out to svlug members and anyone else who might be interested?  Can you 
post it to the group? The Early-Bird registration ends next Monday, 
July 11, so people should register by then for the best deal.

See the text-based symposium announcement below, feel free to edit it 
as appropriate.  Also, there's a .pdf-based two-page flyer, and buttons 
and banners to put on web sites at 

Or let me know if I'm being harassing.

Thank you and best wishes, -Peter
