Holiday Food Drive Successful

2006-12-21

Thanks to everyone who donated and made the Holiday Food Drive successful. We dropped off about 60 lbs of food to Raleigh Rescue Mission.


December Podcast

2006-12-20

The December Podcast, audio from Daniel Chen's June talk on Ubuntu Dapper Drake, is now available via the feed http://www.trilug.org/podcastogg.

In the interest of simplifying the production of the TriLUG Podcast, the m4a format podcast is no longer available. However, the podcast is now available in the equally patent-encumbered format mp3. That feed is available at http://www.trilug.org/podcastmp3. The m4a feed will continue to be updated until the mp3 feed shows up in iTMS. Given some technical limitations of converting and encoding the podcast, patent-encumbered versions maybe a short-lived phenomenon. I'm looking for feedback on this.

A few additional notes about the podcast...

This is the first podcast featuring our new intro and "outro" featuring the voices of past meetings, specifically Paul Unbehagen (Web 2.0), Daniel Chen (Ubuntu), Tanner Lovelace (CA Cert), and Jason Faulkner (Nagios).

The program is produced with open source software, particularly Audacity.

The intro and outro music is "Good Thoughts" by the Sim Redmond Band. Used with permission.

Questions, comments, and high praise can be sent to mfrye @ trilug dot org. Enjoy!

December TriLUG Meeting - Holiday Social and Food Drive

2006-11-29

Please join us December 14, 2006 at Red Hat for our annual Holiday Social/Potluck. Take this time to catch up with TriLUG friends, play a few rounds of BZ Flag, and generally have a good time. This event is a potluck, so bring desserts, hot food, wings, whatever to share with friends.

We'll also be collecting non-perishable foods to benefit the Raleigh Rescue Mission so bring some canned, dry, and other goods, but let's leave the Ramen at home this year. :-)

Questions/comments/high praise go to the Contact TriLUG form.



Podcast of November 2006 Meeting

2006-11-21

The first official TriLUG podcast of a meeting is available now. The sound isn't as good as I'd like, but as production continues, we'll try to work out the kinks.

Ogg file: trilug-nov2006.ogg

This content will also be available in a patent-bound ball of litigation-ready fuzz (m4a) on the iTunes Music Store later today.

Comments and suggestions can be sent to Matt Frye.
