Power bumps, hacking attacks, and Bell woes

May you live in interesting times is certainly the thing for this week. Bell cut off my provider last week for a day and a half, today there is a network flood that causes my DSL modem to lock up, and I walked on the power bar where I had plugged in while I was moving the server into a rack. I’m surprised anything survived. At least this constituted some activity on the site.

Registration closing

We have to have the exams shipped in from Toronto, so anyone who has not signed up by Monday night may not have an exam to write on. I will send a confirmation email to everyone who is scheduled to write.

November Meeting, Thursday Nov 20, 2004

Meeting this Thursday, Nov 20, 2004. See calendar for details. Last meeting had some relatively lively discussion, hopefully we can keep the trend going. Given that we will be punting the LPI exams out, this could help map out training (if people want it), and we could discuss GNU cfengine.

October Meeting - This Thursday (see calendar)

Last meeting, we discussed the potential LPI certification testing, which went ahead. This time around, we will be discussing the next round, as well as the possibility of trying to set up a training day for the exam. We could set up and review the objectives, as well as set up a small network kind of like an installfest, but with the LPI objectives as the goal. This needs some work, but I’m willing to spend a Saturday or a Sunday at it.
