Preparing for OSS2009

I'm preparing for the trip to Sweden for the 5th International Conference on Open Source Systems in a couple of days by making some tweaks to the FLOSShub website. The newest improvements include updated profiles and viewing permissions, and the addition of a blog entry node type for registered users. I plan to use the blogging functionality on the FLOSShub site for my OSS2009 trip report contents; hopefully others will follow suit.
