Agenda 20201203

Meeting Announcement Thursday December 3, 2020 Venue Virtual - via Jitsi Meeting Agenda Discussions This month is the annual scripting talk/open discussion. We have at least three items lined up and are hoping for some scripting items from the general membership, so feel free to volunteer a pet script or a scripting question. Scripting is a pretty open topic, not just limited to shells, but any scripting language is fair game. [Read More]

Agenda 20201105

Meeting Announcement Thursday November 5, 2020 Venue Virtual - via Jitsi Meeting Agenda Discussions This month we have three short talks on the topic of e-voting. The first will be from John on e-voting systems thenselves. The second from Scott on experiences with a specific evoting system. The third will be from Tug on open vs. closed source e-voting systems. Discussion and questions welcome. As a reminder, we have scheduled a scripting talk for the December meeting for the past couple of years and we intend to continue the tradition, so if anyone is interested in doing a short ~5 minute talk on some scripting aspect, feel free to let the secretary know that you are interested so we can line them up.

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 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]
