February Meeting: 2014-02-13

Looks like I forgot to post the meeting from last month. I almost forgot to post this month. I need a better reminder system for this stuff.

Thursday will be the second Thursday of February and that makes it meeting night.

Topics:

  • BSDCan is coming soon, are you going?
  • I have a number of small PC units if anyone is interested. They were originally used for managing wall displays. I’ll bring a sample and can bring quite a few at the next meeting. I don’t have a current count, but it exceeds 10 units
  • Remote sensing – anyone have experience with I2C, etc.?

Other topics will be entertained.

 

December meeting will not be hapening

Given the time of year and people with commitments, rather than add one extra item to the list, I’m cancelling the meeting. Given the turn out and the travel requirements for some of us, this should make it a little easier.

Season’s greetings, whatever season you celebrate!

November Meeting: 2013-11-14

Thursday will be the second Thursday of November and that makes it meeting night.

We should raise a glass to FreeBSD for it’s 2o year anniversary last week.

Topics:

  • sparc emulation – running 4.3 BSD on virtual sun hardware
  • simh and vax BSD
  • other emulation

Other topics will be entertained.

October Meeting: 2013-10-10

Just a reminder that Thursday the 10th will soon be upon us and it will be time for the next OCBUG meeting.

Topics:

  • FreeBSD 9.2 is out. Anyone planning to update?

  • Useful photo management software on FreeBSD. Anyone have a recommendation?IMG_2931 IMG_2932 IMG_2936

September Meeting: 2013-09-12

Just a reminder that Thursday the 12th will soon be upon us and it will be time for the next OCBUG meeting.

Topics:

  • What oddball hardware can you run BSD on? (and should you?)
  • Using simh and 4.3 BSD

Feel free to add topics as comments!
