Feminist Fightback 2006

August 17, 2006

The Feminist Fightback conference is gaining steam, and I’ve been asked to organise a men’s meeting at the conference.

The conference is looking to be a good one, with the main organisers having a whole list of people they’re inviting, as well as lots of support from women students, lecturers, and feminist activists. Since there is no Fem06 conference this year, then this will be the main feminist/women’s liberation conference this year.

It’s on the 21st October, in Central London. The venue is TBA, though will probably be somewhere studenty, given that it’s organised by ENS Women. No doubt, being a student group, there will be a bar nearby. But don’t let that put you off, it’s open to all – including us blokes.

So, I’m now on the hunt for feminist blokes who can speak at this men’s meeting. Any ideas, let me know.

Knee Deep in DNS and PHP

August 14, 2006

Sorry for the lack of updates. Again, there hasn’t been that much to update about in particular. Work has been pritty much dead, especially since Thursday and the Government-sponsored mass self-defication over air travel – a travel agent’s worst foe.

Instead, I’ve found myself knee deep in DNS and PHP. I’m trying to consolidate my various domains into one account at UKReg.com, however it is proving a bit difficult in getting hosts to release the domains so I can transfer them over. (If you tried to email me on a kitnotes.co.uk email account last night, I wouldn’t have got it, so you need to resend it).

I’ve also being shedding domains I don’t need or use. I registered fightback.org.uk speculatively, because I was surprised that some other lefty didn’t get in there first, and I wanted to make sure it wasn’t registered by some bourgy bastard. The domain, however, just seemed to rot and rot away, langering around in the online dungeon of useless domain names.

But, along come the wonder women of ENS Women (well, Sofie at least), and their justice-league-esque plans for a socialist feminist conference and finally our little domain name version of a hero finally has a use after all. fighback.org.uk is now the website of Feminist Fightback ’06, a bad-ass conference of kick-ass socialist feminism, y’all. Check it out.

I’ve also been busy setting up the website of the Socialist Youth Network, a work-in-progress is currently online. It uses the e107 engine but there seem to be some CHMOD problems. I will have to look into them tonight.
