OCUUG meeting on Wedneday

We had an average turnout at the OCUUG meeting on Wednesday night. It was a good time and for those who do not know, it’s more of a social group than a technology group. Having said that, tech topics do come up. For those who were, Dru just launched her latest book: The Definitive Guide to PC-BSD. This one is published under the Apress banner.

There were copies for all at the meeting and DVDs to go with it.Of course, it’s not completely free, We are supposed to blog about it (notice I’m doing so now) and write a book review. I’m considering writing my BSDA at BSDCan 2010, so hopefully this will fill n the blanks for me. Either way, it’s an excuse to read a book, work through a new flavor of OS and take a certification exam.

I’ll bring my copy to the meeting so you can look at it. I’ll also have a few copies of PC-BSD 8.0 RC2 for anyone who wants one. These are 64 bit, but you will be able to run them under virtual box.
