We have a WLUG meeting coming up on Wednesday, April 16th, at 7:00 PM.
Directions to the meeting can be found on the WLUG website.
There is a remote possibility that I will miss the meeting, which is why
the meeting topic is listed as TBD on the website. If I cannot make it,
I would recommend conducting the meeting as a Birds of a Feather session.
However, if I am able to make it (95% probability), I'll bring my
laptop, battery, DC-DC converter. We can have a discussion about
reducing power consumption in laptops. I can do a quick demo of the
PowerTOP application (see: http://www.lesswatts.org). I don't think
this will take up the entire meeting, but we can use it as a starting
point for further discussions. I also have the CPU frequency control
applications installed to control the clock frequency.
Naturally, we'll go out for food and refreshments afterwards.
See ya later!

Are any of you admins out there running SPF, or something similar?
How well does it work for you?
Today I started getting a large number of "undeliverable" responses
due to spammers forging my email address in the From: address.
Wondering if SPF is worth the trouble to set up.
I'm using postfix, btw.
We are a small local company that is trying to do something different. We
have chosen open source technologies in building our ideas. As the company
has become more successful we need help supporting them. We are looking for
a team of folks who are passionate about technology and know open source to
provide thoughtful, reliable system administration services for our Redhat linux os
We have made some bad choices in the past, and as a result received service
that has hurt us. We don't know where to look for guidance in choosing, and
we are hoping the user group can recommend some good folks who will be there
when we need them with depth of knowledge and abilities in performing
routine maintenance as well as emergency support when we need it. Your
recommendations would truly mean a lot to us. Mercader

my machines requests for a dynamic IP via DHCP, my
DNS settings get reset. Is it possible to override
this? I am running Fedora 8.

I had mounted an external usb drive /dev/sdb2 onto /media/sdb2 and was
coping several mega-bytes of files to it when I got some I/O errors.
Then I noticed that all of my /dev/sdb* files were missing from /dev.
When I do an ls -al /dev, all the files are there except the sdb files.
How can I get these back? I'm running Ubuntu 'gutsy' 2.6.20-16-generic.
