ASU Install Fest

I'm going to keep this short and sweet like johnc4510 asked me to.
Here is the time and place:
Date: March 21st, 2009
Time: 9am - 5pm
Location: Brickyard Lobby 1st floor
699 S Mill Ave
Tempe, AZ 85281 (map shown below)

They are going to have games, different presentations, and booths for all kinds of different stuff. As of Sunday it looks like there are going to be at least 5 of us going to help them out, and we would like to see as much of an AZ LoCo turnout as possible. Hope to see you all there.

Jaunty Jackalope Alpha 6

Well, I got antsy and decided to install the alpha 6 version of Jaunty on my Toshiba laptop to see how it was, and to make sure I could. The Intrepid version wouldn't install on this machine, so I had to do an upgrade. Luckily the upgrade was smooth. This new alpha installed right off though, and I glad because I prefer to keep my /home partition and do a fresh install of the / partition.

Server Migration/ Restoration under Ubuntu.

All hardware fails eventually, and eventually everyone will have to deal with a catastrophic hardware failure. Whether through failure or the need for migration, system administrators will need at one time or another, to move to new machines or to recover files lost. This is a way, and just a beginning, for sysadmins to work more efficiently.

Choices for recovering an Ubuntu Linux machine are many, and the most popular for this restoration are: image backups, re-installation (and hopefully not having to re-build from scratch).

Plug Westside Meeting Feb 25th 2009

The Phoenix Linux Users Group (PLUG) had their Westside meeting today. I attended it like I have been for the last couple of meetings. Several members had recently gone to SCALE in California, so most of the meeting was devoted to talking about what they did there. They said that it was a great learning experience, and a great way to meet many people that use free software. Hans even gave a presentation at SCALE which he went through with us. They are planning on going back next year and invite anyone that is interested to go along with them.
