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 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).

Email fixed

That last item should have read as email fixed. This doesn’t mean mailing lists, but that will be fixed shortly as well. You can now receive password reminders.

Email broken

Well, I guess this would indicate why there have been few comments lately, etc. It appears that there was a typo in the email processing routine of the software. I just tried sending an email to myself from the site after Kelly told me that he couldn’t get a password reset email. I suspect this would have affected new signup as well. Not amusing. All appears to be fixed now, so anyone who needs a password reminder/reset should now be able to get one.

January Meeting

Happy new year to all! Meeting delayed 1 week: Now January 27 It’s 2005 and we should try something new for ovSAGE. We should have a training session during the meetings, a Q&A, maybe a vendor visit, or a hardware presenation. This doesn’t have to be every meeting, but we are supposed to be about forwarding the profession. It’s a bit late to do anything like this for January, so how about next month?

December Meeting: Thursday, Dec 16

No wild and crazy topics, maybe a view to what should be done in the new year? Things to cover, training? vendor visits? Special topics and presentations? Come one, come all… step right up and suggest some new and exciting things for the local system administrators. If you don’t play, you can never win. Anyone can contribute their $0.02. That’s right, Big Top System Administration. Only a few virtual front row seats available.
