We only have LPI 101 and 102 avaliable at this time. It appears that 201 and 202 are under revision. It also appears that I had a typo in the email address.

Open Source Weekend.

This year Open Source Weekend (OSW) is planning an open source fun day on May 14, following BSDcan. We will have a full weekend event in the fall, in conjunction with a national event. The May 14th OSW event will be in the form of a small number of 1-hour talks, and ongoing 20-minute workshops/demos throughout the day. If you have a neat open source hack, and would like to show and tell others about it we’d like to hear from you.

Free Servers?

I ran across this on Newsforge yesterday and I thought I’d pass it along. Sun is offering 60 day trials of their new T2000 opeteron servers.

The specs are pretty impressive, and the power requirements appear to be quite low given what we have under the hood. I have not determined if an individual qualifies for the deal, but I think I’ll check it out.
