OCBUG

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: 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.

August followup…

We had a slightly better than normal turnout due to a couple of unexpected arrivals. This should happen more often.

As usual, the conversation was all over the map – Scotch tasting, GPL vs. BSD licensing, Creative Commons, old hardware, OS religious wars, etc. All said, a good evening.

We did decide on the next mini-install day, we are considering either October 15 or 16 (that is the weekend after Thanksgiving for us Canadians) and we will be looking at the current FreeBSD and PC-BSD for that event. The OS images will be available, as well as network connectivity and hopefully we will be live on IRC while we are doing it. I will warn in advance that if you wish to do a USB install, you should create your USB install device in advance, as dumping the full image to a USB stick is a very slow process.

August Meeting: 2011-08-11

Just reminding people that the OCBUG meeting is the 11th at our usual location.

Topics:
– Next mini-install 9 beta 1?
– What are we doing with BSD?
– Project ideas – Home automation? Weather station? Home radio station?
