BSDCan Keynote

It’s been a little hectic around here lately, new organizations to join, conferences to attend, lawns to mow and course material to prepare. That’s in addition to my day job. As a result (and due to running out of disc space), it’s taken some time to get at the audio from the conference. This is the first one I have converted - the keynote address. Others will follow this week. I’m also working on the videos, but that takes a lot longer.

Podcasting - easier than I thought

Well, it can be. Everyone knows the love affair I’ve been having with my macbook, so it’s no surprise that I used it to create a podcast of the keynote from BSDCan 2007. If anyone wants to listen, it’s at my other blog site. Since it’s a streamable/downloadable item, the bandwidth usage may get high and since they provide free bandwidth, why not use theirs? I have a lot more to produce, so I think I’ll be automating the production a bit and see what happens.

June Meeting, June 21 @ 19:00

We have a change of venue this month. Brenda is off to Scotland for a vacation, so we don’t have a sponsor at Fidus. I’ll see what I can come up with, but we can always go to a Tim Horton location - there will be coffee :) Topics: Bruce may want to talk about his Postfix adventures. I’ll have a podcast or two from BSDCan 2007 available. I’ll probably want to talk about the LPI course Andrea and I are giving at the OTI.

LPI Preparation Review

This may be the first time any of you see of this topic. If it is successful, we’ll be offering it again in the future. First some background. With a little urging from Tim Inkpen (who has gotten involved with the OTI), Andrea Vieira and I will be presenting a rapid get up to speed course for people who wish to get their LPIC-Level 1 certification. The initial offering starts June 18th and yesterday (I was over there to attend a session on how to bid on government contracts) there was 1 seat available in a class of 25.

May ovsage meeting notes

At the last ovsage meeting, two of us installed Linux into virtual machines, then installed postfix into those virtual machines. One of us managed to get his postfix working, so that someone else present could send him an email. In my case, I had already installed DSL (Damn Small Linux) into VirtualBox. During the meeting, I upgraded DSL to Debian and installed postfix. But, I was using NAT for networking, and that did not allow for external machines to talk to my mail server.

I (finally) joined new ovSAGE website

From Alan Fields: Hi, Yes I’ve finally joined ovSAGE. I attended meeting at Fidus this month. It was good but we need to work on recruiting members. Thanks to all those who keep these user groups going. afields

BSDCan 2007 - Day 4

Wow! It took me long enough to get back to this. I started to write this on May 19th and just got it finished. I’ll blame being involved in too much :) Day 4 - started later, 10:00 - much easier to get to. As it’s a long weekend and a Saturday, the traffic was light getting down here and there was parking on the street instead of the parking structure.
