At PLUG W I just asked about a) a quick HOWTO for a local APT repo, for 
e.g., updating printer drivers and b) a quick HOWTO for building really 
simple .deb packages.  I'm not sure either of those is a full preso, but 
they'd probably make good lightning talks.  [These are ones I want to 
hear, not present.]

I could probably talk about any/all of regular expressions; useful Bash 
resources/information; "logcheck" either as the package in Debian/Ubuntu 
or as a concept, or both; or using http-replicator for a package proxy; 
if anyone cares.  (OK, Jeff & Lyz, stop laughing at the idea of me and 
"*lightning* talks"... I'll just go last... :)

Actually, if someone else was going to do a talk on creating a .deb 
package, repackaging http-replicator so it actually works out-of-the-box 
might be a good example.

I've been very happy with M0n0wall, but that's Free-BSD and so probably 
off-topic.  (It's nice that I can claim I don't have a Linux 
mono-culture on my network though. :)

I'd be interested in Michale's OpenVPN talk if he wants to take it on 
the road to PLUG N or W.
