This talk will outline the basics of what’s inside a PC.
We will go through each of the components and demonstrate how they work together. Some of those computer parts (such as the hard drive) will be further taken apart to show you how they look and work on the inside.
You will furthermore get the opportunity to take apart the pieces yourself, as well as to put them back together again.
This talk will cover all important aspects of Biodiesel.
From its use as an alternative fuel, its effects on the environment, its legal status in Ireland, to its future production. A piece will be on the chemical process involved, as well as a run-down on how to make a small amount yourself. If time permits, an actual example will be done to show the process. Finally: A look into the pros and cons of its use.
This will not be an overly technical talk, and most will be in general layman’s terms.
The talk will deal with the following:
What DNA is and how we use it. Industrial applications, diagnostic applications and a high level look at DNA forensics.
No experience needed.
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is a well known and tempered method for storing information in a directory based hierarchy.
This talk will discuss the core concepts of LDAP and you will be shown how to use LDAP to represent user accounts in an LDAP data store with the hopes of using this single store as the primary data source for applications, wiki, blogs, e-mail accounts, etc.
Suitable for home users, businesses and complete beginners to LDAP.
Ladies and Gentlemen, girls and boys, hackers of all genders, ages, and maturity levels. It’s nearly time for Science and Innovation!

The upcoming Science Week and Innovation Dublin Festival represent a fantastic opportunity and an interesting challenge for TOG. With the week and festival running from the 7th-14th November and 10th-21st November respectively. We have an opportunity to run over two weeks of events. The challenge is what to fill the two weeks with.
So we’re looking for your suggestions and ideas for events, activities and projects. Think big!
Our space offers a lot of scope with a class room, large common room, workshop, kitchen and other workrooms. We’ve got equipment like hand/power tools, a CNC router, 3D printer, oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzer, sewing machines, science, computer and networking hardware, etc. The ability and time to get materials or extra equipment. Add working on activities over multiple days and the skills of TOG members and the wider public. I think we can come up with something interesting.
