[talk] T42 - Thinkpad T62 - Burned Out LCD Lamp - Works Otherwise

If anyone is interested in a T42 for parts or otherwise, I have one to give away.

Everything but the LCD lamp functions.

The hard drive has been removed but the mount and mounting screws are present.

Don’t remember how much RAM is present, but it’s at least 1GB.

While the battery functions, I know not how well nor for how long.

The power adapter also functions.

But, wait! there’s more:

If you act today, you can get a gen-u-ine docking station to go with it.

In fact, you can have anything else unless you take the docking station with it - that is: all or nothing!

Happy Holidays!

P.S. You’ll also receive, at no price, a custom Gimme! (TM) Coffee sticker - while supplies last.

[talk] 2015 monthly meetings

While we have a few meetings we're working on for 2015, it's a good time
to send out a broad query to those in and beyond NYC for potential meetings.

In particular, NYC is a city a lot of remote developers/admins visit.
If you happen to be coming to NYC in the foreseeable future and are
interested in doing a meeting, please ping admin <at>  with your idea and
timeframe.

While we are pretty strict about only having our monthly meetings on the
first Wednesday of the month, we will certainly entertain additional
meetings on other days.

Needless to say, this email should be forwarded beyond talk <at>  if deemed
relevant.

Yes, from /.

Finally a cheap ARM board that has specs as good as an iPhone:

Cortex-A5 over BCM sounds nice.. so goodbye RPi?

[talk] Who's built redundant pfsense setups?

After last year's NYCBSDCon demo, and after having a Cisco ASA crap out, I'm trying to put together a redundant pfsense setup that handles multiple WANs, NAT, etc.

Looking at the pfsense Definitive Guide, it details multi-WAN setups and also how to get multiple switches in there.  I think/hope I can figure that out, but I remember ike or someone saying that when you had multiple switches, you needed to make sure they... could share an ARP table?  

I don't remember exactly, but I was hoping someone here could make a hardware recommendation for what switch to use before my wallet flops out.
