November Meeting: 2010-11-25

LISA’10 is over and there are stories to tell. There is a new program started up with LOPSA and the training sessions were great. The hallway track was quite good although this year it suffered a bit from the incessant tweeting that was going on. It’s hard to make progress on something when the pop-up indicator on your screen is (almost) constantly lighting up with a new comment. There are two additional conferences happening in 2011.

eBooks, LISA countdown, LOPSA

I’m going to add a few eBooks (PDF at the moment) to the downloads section. These are GFDL or marketing papers, so I don’t see an issue. They may have some value to you, so feel free to download and have a look. LISA ‘10 starts next Sunday. That should be a lot of fun and a lot of late nights and early mornings. It’s certainly a busy conference and there is so much to do/see/attend.

October Followup

We had a few things to discuss at the last meeting, but no serious technical talk. I promised to post a couple of links so here we go… First item on the table was anyone who has tried to get the email server running and failed AND still wants to get it working, send me an email off-list and I’ll get together with you to get it done. Serious requests only :)

September followup...

We had a great presentation by Jeff Green on his ethical hacking site group51. He provided the slides that were presented and I’ve placed them in the download section of the site. Jeff also encouraged the members to sign up and contribute. He needs assistance on the site management and daily maintenance as it is becoming more than a single person job. If you have the bandwidth and the inclination, help out.

September Presentation

Title: September Presentation Location: The Pythian Group Link out: Click here Description: We are having a short presentation on ethical hacking concentrating on Linux by Jeff Green, founder of group51.org. One of the key objectives of the website is a proof of concept. We take systems we find in peoples garbage and insert them into a cloud computing environment connected through an open source intranet. We want to be the most powerful garbage pile in the world.
