What do we want?|
This is "what it's all about"
What do we want with all of this? Wasting webspace or bandwidth?
I'd like to see this place used by all kinds of people as a meeting point for projects (programming,documentation,social/political) and the pursuit of different art forms!
Everybody is welcome, even if he is only interested in a small fraction of our topics.Examples of topics:
Again, this are only examples, be free to choose what ever you'd like to do!
- Free operating systems
- diversity of views
- humour of all kinds
- programs by YOU
In the future, i hope this develops into a community with a multitude of views but a common goal:
Knowledge,fun and freedom (of mind).
To achieve this goal we have officially launched a club
, which helps us to coordinate our work!
first stated about CARGAL that it may mean
"crowley aleister reaches for global anarchist liberation",
so don't tell you haven't been warned ;-)}
And in case you wondered what the symbol in our logo is: It`s a sri yantra, a diamond in a lotus, the symbol for the meditationmantra "OM".
Who may be interested to participate?
Everyone who has a passion in writing, drawing, or ranting >:-) !
You have the option to publish pictures, write an essay, start a dark cult......it`s up to YOU.
Every point of view, no matter how extreme it may be, is welcome, aslong as the basic rules of a community are respected!
Discover topics you would have otherwise overlooked, confront yourself with things you didn`t even know they exist.....
Using a CMS, a forum and mailinglists we offer everyone a voice to give creativity to the world which would go unnoticed otherwise!
TIPS for future CONTRIBUTORS:
The first meeting points to share informations are our Forum and, for a more personal,direct contact, visit our Jabber-Conference on jabber.cargal.org , room: cargal. BOB the Bot is there to help you!
HTML 4.0 can be used for articles or essays which are published in our CMS, which is based on Drupal, PNG is our favourite formats for pictures,
if you create music you may want to encode it in OGG/Vorbis!!
English is next to german our second supported language (translations are offered by Lotussteve),
because with our HOW-TOs we aim at a international audience.
The document should contain links to all topics covered, if you need examples how that is done please have a look at our HOW-TO's or E2!
If you have questions on the usage of our CMS please send an email to us
All authors are required to generate a GnuPG-key to ensure the privacy of (the mails of) all participating contributors.
So, after keysigning and verification on the phone or at a keysigning party you will be added to the CARGAL web of trust!
(I personally recommend using Mutt, this mailer integrates GnuPG smoothly!)
Every author gets one or more emailadresses $YOUR_NAME@cargal.org (You can have any name or acronym you want),
the acess data will be sent to you encrypted!
Mailingslists are setup to provide quick coordination for events and projects.
Every authors can set up a memberpage with a description and a picture, to lower the anonymity of the "global village".
On our server each member gets a certain quota of disk space which can be reached via http://www.cargal.org/~USERNAME.
How much is dependent on the purpose it is used for and for how long you need it.
SSL-secured instant messaging and conferencing is supplied via our own Jabberserver,
where all important issues can be discussed with your privacy protected! Jabber is the system of choice for chitchat and general meetings in an secure environment!
For Webmail and onlinecalendars we will soon (summer 2004) provide Squirrelmail, expanded with a great number of plugins. SSL and a virtual keyboard will be there to protect you!
Users may publish their photos and paintings in our Gallery, provided by this great software.
Wether you want to make a vernisage, or just a collection of jokes, it`s all up to you!
If you feel the urge to moderate in our forum or if you want to have an additional one, please let us know!
The rest depends purely on how much time you want to invest realising your dreams :-) !
