The January 2015 meeting was in Barnes and Nobles from 7PM to 9PM.
We had about 8 users. Tim C. brought in a broken ATX mini case that was missing a cover. He said that he was having a power issue. Brad the previous owner of this object advised him to screw the cover back on. The power supply accordingly did not appear to be properly grounded. The cover may be part of the ground for the case.
Brad B. talked a little about new and exciting FreeNas alternatives. FreeNAS has been the dominate player in providing a ‘Free SAN’. However, this is a FreeBSD solutions, and some want a Linux based solution. Although there is Openfiler, it has not been upgraded in a few years. Despite this Brad was excited to announce that Easy NAS and RockStor are two NEW Linux alteratives to FreeNAS. Brad B. is testing that both and seems to think that RockStor looks the most promising.
Dave B. mentioned he was worried about moving to a newer version of SUSE because his system is using software RAID. We recommneded he just make a backup of his data on a USB attached storage and then rebuild the machine and import the data. This should allow him to rebuild it without any data loss – in theory.
David C. mentioned he wanted to learn how to ‘backup’ his DVD collection on another type of media. This problem is still not solved. But, some software possiblities were mentioned.
Nobody has taken the LPI certification, but the LUG gets a discount with the ‘Meetup15′ code.
P.S. My new year resolution is to get all the meeting notes online in a timely manner. Please feel free to remind me. -Ted

Dick Seabrook from AACC came and talked about Linux and programming classes available at AACC. Recently he came out of retirement and has been putting together some very challenging introductory to advance Linux classes. He is teaching CSI 135 in the fall semester. Take csi 135 online if you want to develop shell programming skills but don’t have much time to take classes during the day.
