7:20  Writing Firefox Extensions
         Presented by Roger Trussell

       Roger Trussell will present "Writing Firefox Extensions".
       Firefox extensions are small blocks of code that add
       new functionality to Firefox, from a simple toolbar
       button to a completely new feature, giving content
       providers another way to make features more accessible
       to their end-users. We will see some quick examples of
       how to build extensions for Firefox 2.x using XML and
       JavaScript. We will also see a demonstration of some
       useful extensions available for web content
       developers.

       Roger Trussell is a programmer with over five years of
       experience in a variety of roles for health care,
       software, research, and manufacturing environments. He
       has worked at many companies throughout the Upper
       Valley, including DHMC, ISEE Systems, and Timken
       Aerospace. Roger holds a Bachelor of Science degree in
       Computer Science from Rensselaer Polytechnic
       Institute. One of Roger's main interests is bridging
       the gap between programmers and end-users.

8:50  Roundtable Exchange - where the attendees can make
         announcements or ask a linux question of the group.
