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.

February Meeting - VOIP talk

Title: February Meeting - VOIP talk Location: Tim Horton’s, 660 Eagleson Rd, Kanata Link out: Click here Description: I went and checked out the Tim Horton’s on Eagleson Rd. It certainly has the capacity and there are several tables that do not have fixed chairs, so we can “arrange” the seating a little to make things work.

Looks like we have to find another meeting spot

I went over to The Second Cup yesterday, just to make sure it was still open and while I was there, asked what had happened last month. I was quite surprised to discover nothing had happened. In a new move by management, they have changed their hours so that they are only open until 18:00. As you can see, this puts a damper on our meeting location. The alternate location we used last month is a bit small (Tim Horton’s across the street), and I don’t know of any other venues in the near vicinity that we could bother with.

Post January Meeting...

The first thing I’d like to do here is to apologize for those who arrived and discovered that the location was closed. I could have sent an email to the list or tweeted, but did not, thinking that anyone who came would think to try across the street at the Tim Horton’s located there. One person did and I believe two did not. I’ll have to specify alternate locations for future meetings.
