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.

Out with the old and in with the new…

Well, to some extent anyway. The new website is launched and live. In order to participate, you need to sign up. All the good reasons (mostly spam) are in effect. I’m going to copy over the items from the old website to this one with a tag of “OCUUG Archive”. As this is effectively a blogging engine, the management is a bit easier than the old one and comment spam is much easier to deal with. You still need to be a member to comment and you need to come out to a meeting to get blog/post privileges. That might change as time goes on, but right now, that’s the requirement.
