Still Alive

It has been very quiet on here for the past year and a half, but the site is still live. I recently repatriated it to Canada from a hosting service in the U.S. as I am no longer providing hosting services for clients of my consulting company. That probably will not last much longer either, as I have discovered that since I have converted to a employee from doing contract work, I am no longer willing to give up evenings and weekends any more to take care of client issues.

Of course, this also means that my distraction level has gone down a lot and I’m much more likely to coordinate meetings again. The traditional second Thursday night is still an available night, so a meeting in April would be a good time to attempt CPR on the group. Once the mailing list is active again, I’ll post to it and see if there is still any desire to meet.

October Meeting!

We received a solicitation via the mailing list to have a meeting this month, so have a meeting we shall. The traditional venue and time – 2018-10-11 at Colonnade Pizza on Metcalfe @ 18:00 until people leave (or it closes).

Discussion:

  • BSD on the Raspberry Pi 3
  • Becoming a technical group again
  • Project ideas from the floor

BSDCan 2018 has just passed…

and our thoughts turn to maybe we should have a meeting.

I was talking to Diane at the conference and perhaps we should make this a more technical event rather than social. I’m not sure where we should start, but the fine people at the BSD Foundation passed me an InstallFest kit, so the first meeting of the soon to be revised and resurrected group woould be to install FreeBSD on either an appropriate device or at least a VM running on your laptop.

I’m thinking July, and we may wish to have a different night rather than the second Thursday. I’ll post to the mailing list. This will also require us to use a different venue, so depending on the number of people who will be attending, that will make a difference in where we go. I can book a meeting room that can handle about 10 people, so if we get that many, I’ll be pleasantly surprised. I’ll also have some 25th anniversary stickers from the FreeBSD Foundation to hand out as well.

June Meeting: 2017-06-08 @ 18:00

As was sent to the mailing list, we should have a meeting this month as it is BSDCan time. 

This meeting will be at The Red Lion, not at Café Colonnade.

BSDCan 2017 registration is at The Red Lion

After many years, the registration night (Thursday, June 8th starting @ 15:00) will be in a new location, The Red Lion. While Dan has mentioned it on various media, I think I should mention it here. Once again, it will NOT be at the Royal Oak this year.

HEADS UP: BSDCan 2017 registration at the pub is in a new location.

The Red Lion – 47 Clarence Street, Ottawa, Ontario
