=== MFS Introduction and Key Signing ===

The purpose of Manchester Free Software is to promote the Free Software

Every meeting we start with an opportunity for informal key signing.
For this you'll need to bring paper OpenPGP fingerprint slips, see
`gpg-key2ps` from the `signing-party` package (or equivalent in your
GNU/Linux distro):

=== Topic details ===

This month's topic is about running a server.  The meeting will be more
informal than usual using a chat format.  This will blend the best
aspects of an informative constructive topic with wider involvement and
be more social.

The aim of the meeting is that: for those with little or no knowledge of
running a server to gain an appreciation of doing so and help them get
into running a server, if they want to; for those familiar with running
a server they should gain further knowledge, including into different
areas, and an opportunity to share their knowledge in a relaxed environment.

What exactly is covered will depend on attendees and participants.
However, areas like backup & recovery, security, updates and resiliency
will be covered.

== Location ==

The meeting will take place at Manchester Technology Centre, details above.

== Transport ==

=== Parking ===

Please research and decide where to park before heading on your journey
and have a Plan B.

There are paid parking lots around the venue, they are marked by a blue
P in OpenStreetMap centred on Manchester Technology Centre:

Most of those parking lots are owned by NCP:

In some of the side streets in the venue surrounding area there are
parking meter bays that become zero cost after 8pm on Tuesday so you
will have to pay up until then and the maximum stay is 2 hours BUT MAKE
SURE YOU VERIFY ALL THIS on parking.  This is probably only a good
option if you know the area.

If you can't decide where to park then ask me for advice.

=== Public Transport ===

Closest train stations to the venue are:

* Manchester Oxford Road (MCO) train station
* Manchester Piccadilly (MAN) train station

For other public transport see OpenStreetMap using the "Transport" layer
