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.

OGLF Canceled

For those who didn’t know, the Ontario GNU/Linux Fest in Toronto has been canceled. You can read more about it on the official site, but the short answer is it’s a lot of work to get one going and to organize it. When I found out about it (Thanks Jim), I made a comment about possibly trying to get a similar event off the ground here. It’s certainly not impossible, but it will take work.

Post August Meeting Info

I have uploaded the config files I talked about during the meeting. These files make reference to some extra items such as greylisting and spamassassin, as well as the use of self-signed SSL certificates. You will notice a new menu item on the site under About called ovSAGE Downloads. Go there for the tarball which contains the default and production files as well as diff files for each pair. The main documents for all of this are located on the CentOS website.
