Post Meeting info

November Meeting

We have another meeting Thursday, Nov 17, 2005 at Altera. See the calendar for address information, or check the meeting location link at the top. We may even have a proposal for a new format to add some useful substance to these meetings - it’s a thought. In addition, I do not know how many people are members of Usenix and SAGE, but there have been some rather interesting developments in the past week.

Site Difficulties

If you tried to add info and failed, it may have been due to the OS upgrade done last week. I’m hoping everything is OK now.

Another LPI exam?

I’m thinking it’s time to sponsor another exam. Maybe in late January? If anyone is interested, comment below. There are tutorials on the IBM developer works site to help with covering the required material for the 100 series. More info can be posted if interest is there.

October Meeting

There will be an October meeting. Sorry for the lack last month, but I was distracted. Topics: tracking what you are doing, documentation, and the never ending “This is your new top priority”. Time management may also be a good item, given the last comment. Who can point out what is important right now and say that if you want me to do this, this other item drops off the radar until complete.

Request for Linux Assistance - Mail Server

I have lost the author name for this item This is not so much a story, unless you consider someone in this day and age not being at home in the Linux environment. There, I’ve admitted it to the world at large that I’m a Windows geek. It’s not pretty and it’s not by choice but it is the way of the world at the moment. I need help to mend my heathen ways and so I ask for assistance from all and sundry.
