eRacks Open Source Systems donates new web/mail server to OCLUG

eRacks is proud to donate a 2U aluminum rackmount server to replace the old web/mail server currently in use by OCLUG. It was built from New Old Stock parts, and installed with RedHat Linux 9. It represents at least a 4-fold increase in server capabilities for OCLUG.

Coming Soon: Southern California Linux Expo!

OCLUG will be running a booth at the upcoming Southern California Linux Expo.
SCALE 2x will be at the Los Angeles Convention Center on November 22.
If you would like to help out with the booth, or attend the Expo you can contact Steven at pagedev1@speakeasy.net

OCLUG Polo Shirts!!

We have finally arranged to get custom embroidered polo shirts made up for our group.
They will be worn by the volunteers at Linux Demo Day, but they can be useful for other things as well. You can wear one to work on "casual" days, or to school if you go, or to the meetings of course.

Currently we are ordering only grey shirts, but after Linux Demo Day we will get together another batch of orders and get other colors, and the choices will be announced then. If you would like to order one, and are part of the group, please email us and let us know.

These are photos of one of the shirts to show how they turned out. Quite good I must say. ;)

At one of our previous meetings there were two demonstrations:

  • Cecil Watson - Digital Cameras and Linux: Using gPhoto
  • Kevin Brouelette - Icecast MP3 streaming
Be sure to attend. These demos were scheduled for last month's (June) meeting but because of various reasons they had to be postponed to this month.

Last month we did have a very well received demonstration:
