May Meeting - email configuration in postfix

The May meeting will be pushed out a week, due to the BSD Canada conference. It would be too difficult to race from the conference to the meeting, so I’m bumping the meeting a week. Don’t forget the topic for this month, configuring email. I believe we were going to look at postfix (which should be new to most of us). If you have a laptop, feel free to bring it along.

MacBook exploit (actually java exploit)

I just saw this in my email and decided to pass it on. The original article is posted on ZDnet. It’s interesting and hopefully it will be addressed quickly.

Looks like we may have a basic meeting tonight

The original speaker has fallen through, not a large enough audience, and we don’t have the capacity for a very large one, so I guess it’s all good. There is a possibility for a speaker from Novell to show up tonight, but I don’t have confirmation on that either. I am going to bring along a short video I saw years ago that may be new to most people. Hopefully the VGA adapter I picked up for my mac works with the projector.

Great little comment I heard last night

There I was at the local HTCIA meeting and the presenter was nattering about HCI and passed this comment: There are only two industries where the customer base is calles users: Computer science, support and design Drug Trafficking It struck me as worth repeating. For the acronymically challenged… HTCIA - High Tech Crime Investigation Association HCI - Human Computer Interaction
