Hi all!

This is a last day reminder that there is going to be a TelFOSS meeting 
tomorrow about "Advanced GDB" in Tel Aviv University. More details can be 
found in the quoted message.

Thanks to David for volunteering to give this talk, and he's going to give a 
re-run of it for Haifux on 21-September-2009.

Regards,

	Shlomi Fish
