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.

Confirmed: LPI Exam May 28, 2005

Ottawa Valley SAGE is pleased to sponsor another LPI exam session on May 28, 2005. Yes, I know it’s a bit out of the way, but we do have use of the training center there, and it holds about 40 to 50 people. Traditionally, space has not been an issue. We will try to have the next one in a downtown location, to assist with the people who prefer to not visit the ‘burbs.

March Meeting

Same old same old.. Well, not quite. I was looking at a project called openNMS and was wondering if anyone had looked at it yet, and if so, wanted to talk about it. If not, I thought we could try it out. If anyone wants to have a look, the project is located at www.opennms.org It looks to be a pretty full featured monitoring system, and I can’t afford a copy of HP OpenView :) (supposedly neither can my employer).
