Agenda 20201001

Meeting Announcement Thursday October 1, 2020 Venue Virtual - via Jitsi Meeting Agenda Discussions This month we have a talk from Scott Murphy on firewalls. This will be a two part talk, the first being hardware for the purpose of acting as a firewall and the second will be on the linux firewall itself. This will not be a deep dive on firewalls, but rather a discussion on hardware options and a short usage case that highlights some of the fun in the current firewalld implementation which should be at least mildly entertaining.

Agenda 2020903

Meeting Announcement Thursday August 6, 2020 Venue Virtual - via Jitsi Meeting Agenda Discussions This month we have a talk from John Nash on Linux Photo Management. John will suggest a number of tools for managing photo collections. Photo collections have different characteristics and purposes, so different tools may be needed.

Agenda 2020806

Meeting Announcement Thursday August 6, 2020 Venue Virtual - via Jitsi Meeting Agenda Discussions This month we have a talk/discussion led by Ed Hong on the issues and workflow involved in working from home, particularly under conditions of the pandemic. In contrast to most of our meetings, this one is about strategy more than tactics, about social interaction rather than software details. Meeting Details: The meeting URL and code words should be emailed around 18:30 so there is a potential for some social time prior to getting started. [Read More]

Agenda 2020702

Meeting Announcement Thursday July 2, 2020 Venue Virtual - via Jitsi Meeting Agenda Discussions The talk will be an energetic op-ed on the failure of design methodologies from Tug. Prepare to be entertained/appalled/etc. I do not know the details and think the mystery is more of a draw than the details would be. The second one will be much shorter and is a bit of a follow-up on the talk from last month driven by the post-meeting chat on conferencing gear. [Read More]

Agenda 2020604

Meeting Announcement Thursday June 4, 2020 Venue Virtual - via Jitsi Meeting Agenda Discussions The video conference from last month seemed to go well, so we will try again this month. We will go with jitsi again, and the talk will be about spinning up a jitsi server using a disposable cloud service for the server, hopefully with a demo one being spun up so we can potentially change over to the second one as a functional test.

Agenda 2020507

Meeting Announcement Thursday May 7, 2020 Venue Virtual - via Jitsi Meeting Agenda AGM We will be conducting the AGM on IRC @ 19:00 May 07, 2020. The details are in the wiki, but we did not have one last month due to poor turnout, proabably for lots of good reasons, so we are attempting to make it a little more palatable this time around. We need 25 people to dm our secretary with their email address so we can compare to the mailing list to make this as close to the rules as possible while we deal with the pandemic restrictions.
