Slight change of venue this time. We will be meeting at the Tim Horton’s Carling at March. See the event calendar for full address. The last time we were there, there was an accessible hotspot, so you should be able to get a connection If you bring a laptop.I still want to get my open filer finished, but it doesn’t look like it for this week. Other topics are welcome: solaris 10, bsd, knoppix, anything goes.

SAGE Elections this weekend

For anyone who is a member of SAGE, the elections for a new board of directors is this weekend. If you are a member, please cast your vote. It is important for the continuation of the organization. I’ve duplicated part of the announcement below and you can read the candidate statements on the main SAGE page. The SAGE Leadership Committee has completed fielding a list of candidates for the new SAGE Board, formally known as the Board of The System Administrators Guild, Incorporated.

June Meeting

It’s June, we are almost halfway into the new year, and things haven’t changed too much. We still don’t have many new topics, many new people, and Ottawa is still in a very slow recovery mode. This month, I hope to at least talk about the open filer, that I mentioned last month. Same bat time, same bat channel. Look at the meeting link

System Upgrade

I finally got around to upgrading to the latest version of the software. There may be a few items broken/missing, as some of the modules I was using supposedly are not compatible. Any discrepancies should get ironed out over the next couple of days.

April Meeting

It’s that time again… Welcome to April. We are having a meeting this Thursday, April 21 at the Altera Technology Center as usual. It seems that none of the prior topics have panned out as expected, so this month, something that might be of broader interest: digital copyright law. There are a number of things that can be discussed, one of which is the potential Canadian modification of the copyright laws and allowing for serious privacy infringements.
