The mailing list appears to be broken

The web service provider migrated this site (and a few others) to a new server. It did cause me a bit of alarm at first, as all the notifications were hiding in my SPAM folder and the sudden rash of certificate errors and new server names associated with them started hitting me all at once. I thought I had been hijacked.

As far as I can tell, only the mailing list is broken, and I hope that I’ll get a chance to get that corrected over the next few days.

December Meeting: 2011-12-08

This is a reminder that the December meeting is scheduled for  Thursday, December 8th at Colonnade Pizza on Metcalfe and Gilmore.

No special agenda, I won’t even be there, as I’ll be at LISA’11 in Boston. It is likely I’ll see Dru while I’m there, so I’ll say “Hi” from the group.

November meeting was a success

Well, we had three people show up, so that makes it much more of a success than the October meeting.

One of the items discussed was the web site paper.li and the self-publishing it allows. I’ll be using it as part of the @ocbug twitter feed that I’m planning on starting as a regular part of this group. Hopefully I’ll be a little more regular with tweets than posts.

I also have not yet seen any posts to the mailing list get published, so here’s hoping that starts assisting the population of the site.

In other news, I have downloaded all of the old posts from the original ocuug site and will be adding them to this site as soon as I get a chance to make the database insertion script. I have done it before, so I know it works properly. In a previous post, I mentioned I’ll be tagging the posts as “OCUUG Archive”. The old site is no longer a CMS site, but rather a static site that has a couple of pages and references this site now. It’s almost a year since the change and I am finally getting around to the housekeeping that should have been done many months ago.

November Meeting: Thursday, Nov 10, 2011

This Thursday evening at Cafe Colonnade on Metcalfe and Gilmore, 18:00

No special topics, maybe some discussion on the upcoming release and that mini install we were considering.

For the hardware collectors, I have a few spare parts I’ll be bringing along if anyone is interested. I would prefer to give away some before I drop them off for recycling. There is also a Toshiba T6400 “laptop” in fully operational condition. Requires 120v to run, plasma display.

I think I have configured the website to automatically post mailing list entries for those who don’t do the mailing list thing. We’ll see how that works out.
