I liked your session on the Dark Arts of SSH at LFNW, but would like to follow up with some of the examples you gave. Would it be possible for you to post your presentation?


Hi Ben,

My name is Halil and I’m from Australia.

I have recently acquired a Sharp Netwalker and was very interested in your updated ubuntu distro’s you had created.

But sadly all the links are broken and don’t work anymore.

Could you please provide updated links to Lucid v2 and did you ever make a merkeet or newer version for the netwalker you can put up for download as well ?

All help from you will be appreciated.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Halil,

I am fairly busy these days, and don’t have the time to update the image. I’ll try to get something up for you if you’re still around to read this.

Thanks for your patience,
