July Meeting - July 19, 2007 @ Fidus

Well, that’s what we hope. There wasn’t much to follow up with from the last meeting, so this time I’m announcing an event targeted for September of 2007. It should be very interesting and hopefully will be of use for any or all of you in your professional capacity. See you there.

June Meeting followup

We had a small group tonight. When I say small I mean really small. All of three people. We had the normal trivia exchange and then got to a more serious topic - what kind of skill set do you need to be a sysadmin? This could be a topic for a future meeting. Perhaps some kind of skills assessment from everyone? I think I’ll wait and see who comments/brings it up again.

BSDCan Keynote

It’s been a little hectic around here lately, new organizations to join, conferences to attend, lawns to mow and course material to prepare. That’s in addition to my day job. As a result (and due to running out of disc space), it’s taken some time to get at the audio from the conference. This is the first one I have converted - the keynote address. Others will follow this week. I’m also working on the videos, but that takes a lot longer.

Podcasting - easier than I thought

Well, it can be. Everyone knows the love affair I’ve been having with my macbook, so it’s no surprise that I used it to create a podcast of the keynote from BSDCan 2007. If anyone wants to listen, it’s at my other blog site. Since it’s a streamable/downloadable item, the bandwidth usage may get high and since they provide free bandwidth, why not use theirs? I have a lot more to produce, so I think I’ll be automating the production a bit and see what happens.
