June Meeting 2012

Title: June Meeting 2012 Location: The Second Cup, Bells Corners Link out: Click here Description: No special topics, just some followup from last month. I might have a bit of documentation with me done in asciidoc and have the appropriate tools with me to go through the generation of the different output formats. Other topics welcome - anyone have a Raspberry Pi yet? How about an APC (not a UPS)?

Post May Meeting update

First thing, it was great to have a few more people at this meeting. Seven people is a step up our low numbers and hopefully we will attract a few more people. As we discussed, we will meet at The Second Cup in Bell’s Corners next month. They close at 21:00 now, so those who are in danger of pumpkin mode need not worry. I’ll drop the entry in the event calendar with a TBD for the topic.

May Meeting 2012

Title: May Meeting 2012 Location: Tim Horton’s, 660 Eagleson Rd, Kanata Link out: Click here Description: It’s the week after BSDCan 2012 and a few of our regular attendees were at the conference as volunteers and attendees. Lots of interesting things, so perhaps a bit of a discussion of what went on at the conference is in order. iX Systems left behind a stack of PC-BSD 9.0 64bit DVDs and some FreeNAS 8.

BSDCan 2012 is next week (May 11,12)

Just a reminder that BSDCan 2012 starts May 11th. On the evening of May 10th, there will be an OCBUG meeting at the Royal Oak on Laurier near the University of Ottawa. This will be a very social meeting, as people from all over will be there as conference attendees, some of whom you may already know. Come out and meet old friends and make a few new ones. For anyone interested, registration for the conference and registration packages handouts will also be happening at the pub during this time.

Topic for April may be expanded.

Unfortunately, I didn’t see the comments that were pending until just recently and forgot to approve them. I think the talk on consulting is timely and we should have that talk. As I know we have at least one person looking for the ssh bits, we can have that discussion and if it peters out quickly, we can go on to talk about the issues Kent raised. If that doesn’t work out, we can always have the talk in May.

April Meeting 2012

Title: April Meeting 2012 Location: Tim Horton’s, 660 Eagleson Rd, Kanata Link out: Click here Description: Location: 660 Eagleson Rd. in Kanata Google Map: http://g.co/maps/kza6h (yes, that is a short link) After a brief discussion with one of our members, I was considering a talk on OpenSSH. I’m not sure which specifics I’ll be getting into yet, but I’ll have a small talk prepared in my normal informal style. I’ll attempt to get a short set of slides in place as well, so you have a take-away for your efforts.

March Meeting

Title: March Meeting Location: Tim Horton’s, 660 Eagleson Rd, Kanata Link out: Click here Description: Google Map: http://g.co/maps/kza6h (yes, that is a short link) We will be having a short discussion on small PBX installations and software options for install. I’ll bring along a couple of VoIP phones with me this time, just as examples. If you are looking for some physical sets, I have extras from previous deployments that I can sell to recover my cost for them.
