I have 3 replies so far and expect most of the parts will be taken.  I'll
let you know if there's anything left.

Thank you for helping me recycle.

Pat

The nSLUG server is back again. Replacing it is likely to happen fairly
soon, now.  That will involve some more downtime, but unless the server goes
down on its own again (usually only when it loses power) we should be able
to provide some warning next time.

company created by the progressive computer collective project called the
Community Memory Project (CM). In the pre-net, post '60s era, Community
Memory's theoreticians designed a system of public computer terminals in
which anyone could put any message, comment, news, poetry, etc. and anyone
could answer it and so on, in public places. CM anticipated the popularity
of Internet participation by nearly two decades. Their own system has been
installed and maintained in Santa Monica, California, Berkeley, and Halifax,
Nova Scotia, to name a few places.

I assume you've located this interview with Lee Felsenstein:

   http://madhaus.utcs.utoronto.ca/local/internaut/comm.html
   http://madhaus.utcs.utoronto.ca/local/internaut/past.html

via google?

Interesting to see that LF was also a founder of Osborne Computers.  I
have a soft spot for Osborne.  At one time I had 8 working Osborne 1s,
supported two other O1 users, wrote BASIC, C, Z80 assembler and Lisp
on them and used one to log into Unix accounts over dialup or DataPac.

Yesterday I happened upon serverfault.com when looking for an answer
to a question.  It is not your typical forum site.  Questions are tagged
rather than put into topic zones, and points are rewarded for useful
answers.

I saw a question about cacti which was not answered well
and added an answer using an instant user name but
not registered.  A few minutes later I noticed this user
name had 11 points.  There is a "badge" for getting a point
on your first answer, and that is where the extra points came in.

I thought I'd play this game and see if it was easy to get
more points.  Some questions were newbie questions and
people already had nabbed those for points.  Other questions were
fascinating to read for the wealth of knowledge and variety of
solutions out there.  There are a few Debian and
Ubuntu admins on this site with a stack of experience and knowledge.

The quality of this site is improved by having the points system.
As well as earning points, points can be lost for providing bad
answers.  It is possible to lose points for asking
a poor question as well.

There was an interesting question on how to maintain hundreds of Debian
servers.  In that I learned about project spacewalk, debmarshall, and
packages apt-dater, clusterssh, and puppet.

Sounds like fun and useful at the same time - I'll check it out.

I'm curious about puppet because Wikimedia uses it for their servers. Do
you have a link to where you saw stuff about puppet?

Hello group, 

 

Just wondering if anyone has a need for older working PC parts such as video
cards, modems, RAM (printer, SDRAM PC100 and PC133, etc), laptop hard drives
1 Gig or less, Power Supply, Cases, variety of CPUs and heat sinks, power
cables, NICs, CD-ROMs.  I think that about covers it.

 

Items are 4 to 10 years old.  Most came out of Pentium based PCs as part of
upgrades.  Free to a good home before they make their way to the recycling
centre.

 

Contact me via e-mail at patgagnon AT gmail DOT com.

 

Pat

Hi There,

Where are you located? Are these items gone yet? If not, when do you want
them gone by?

Michael
