…so of course we don’t

Naturally, once I show an interest in getting meetings back on track, we end up under COVID-19 restrictions. Perhaps once everybody has been vaccinated and places are open for indoor dining. we can have an in-person meeting. Somehow I don’t expect that to happen for at least 6 months, if then.

I’ll probably convert this to a static site over the next few months, as I’m no longer interested in keeping WordPress updated either. The layout will probably change as a result, but you never know, maybe I’ll make an attempt at porting the theme as well. Web  design was never my main thing but I could learn something new from the exercise.

October Meeting!

We received a solicitation via the mailing list to have a meeting this month, so have a meeting we shall. The traditional venue and time – 2018-10-11 at Colonnade Pizza on Metcalfe @ 18:00 until people leave (or it closes).

Discussion:

  • BSD on the Raspberry Pi 3
  • Becoming a technical group again
  • Project ideas from the floor

June Meeting: 2017-06-08 @ 18:00

As was sent to the mailing list, we should have a meeting this month as it is BSDCan time. 

This meeting will be at The Red Lion, not at Café Colonnade.

BSDCan 2017 registration is at The Red Lion

After many years, the registration night (Thursday, June 8th starting @ 15:00) will be in a new location, The Red Lion. While Dan has mentioned it on various media, I think I should mention it here. Once again, it will NOT be at the Royal Oak this year.

HEADS UP: BSDCan 2017 registration at the pub is in a new location.

The Red Lion – 47 Clarence Street, Ottawa, Ontario
