You are invited to join us at the next GatorLUG meeting in beautiful (and
thankfully now wet) Gainesville, FL. Summer is here and its hot. But you can
cool off with some great technology and cold libations. Virtually Cuban on
13th street runs drink specials for our meeting. Imported stuff is $2,
domestic stuff is less. Come early and eat some really great Cuban food.
Meetings are always free and open to the general public.

6:15-7:00 Presentation | MapZap - GIS for Bicyclists | Jim Wilson
A cyclist's needs are modest. She wants to get from here to to there by a safe
and enjoyable route. Alas, the information she needs to plan her trip isn't
published anywhere. She must tediously probe the her neighborhood to expand
her mental map of acceptable streets. Or, she can join the bike club and
draw on the local "lore".
MapZap is an open-source attempt to document, quantify, pool and organize this
isolated lore into a larger corpus of desirable roads. These roads can be
assembled into pleasant routes by a newcomer, visiting or touring cyclist.
Two components of MapZap will be demonstrated: A web-aware downloader that
fetches free TigerLine county maps from the US Census bureau, and the main
GUI where a user quickly traces out her latest bike ride.
Hopefully, this will stimulate a lively discussion of prospective metrics that
could be used to quantify these data. Both left- and right-brain skills will
be useful for this discussion.
Jim Wilson is a programmer who lives in Gainesville, Florida. When he is not
writing code or removing bloat from Red Hat flavored distros, Jim enjoys

You know the web browser is a vector for external attacks. But, what about
internal ones? You might not be aware of how capable the web browser can be
as a hacking tool. Some highlights:
• Blind Web server fingerprinting using unique URLs
• Discovery NAT'ed IP addresses with Java applets
• Stealing Web browser history with cascading style sheets
• Essential tips for secure intranets
