[clug] Fwd: New meeting location (and sponsorship!)

Hi all,

With the impending renovations at JD G35, David Smith from Peoplebank has
kindly offered to host our CPUG meetings at the Peoplebank boardroom in
civic. He has also been kind enough to provide Pizza and Beer!

For many years Peoplebank have generously supported local user groups here
in Canberra (including the Canberra Java Users Group).

Peoplebank are situated in Civic, so should be quite convenient for ANU
folk, and being more central should attract more people from within the
city.

Starting with our meeting next month (6pm Thursday 6th August), all future
meetings will be held here. There will be a door bell located at the
entrance, ring that and someone will let you in!

Next months meeting details are here:

[clug] [OT] Friday Funnies running a little late. Le Tour or the World Cup to blame? No, just slack.

If you want to have some fun, and see what “too much time on your hands” looks like:

Think about “Triple Rot13”… As good as “Triple DES”? Not so much :)

[clug] how to talk

I have a linux server that other family members use occasionally as a desktop.

I need an automated process to occasionally send them a message.  I don't really want this to be anything but
local and I don't really want to use a full on IM client if I can avoid it.  

I was looking at xtalk but I'm not sure it's scriptable.  Anyone have any ideas?  In distro (ubuntu) solutions preferred.

Kim

[clug] power meter that can be queried/report on the network?

All

I know there are many power metres available that have a display of the
power draw, however I am wondering if anyone knows of models which either
have wireless or preferably a cat5 plug and an ability to be queried for
the status of power draw. SNMP or similar is probably preferable to web
interface (though anything can be scripted).

I have a device I wish to monitor if it is drawing power and how much which
may change due to various other components and what they are doing, I do not
want to have to set up a web cam to look at the display on a normal power
meter.

Bob Edwards has been metering things around hs house for years o who knows he
may hvae some good suggestions already.

My initial google searches are not showing solutions.

Cheers

	See You
	    Steve

[clug] reminder: Open Source Developers' Conference 2014 (Gold Coast QLD) CFP still open

Hi all

We're looking for presenters to talk at the upcoming Open Source 
Developers' Conference (4-7 November 2014, Griffith University Gold 
Coast Campus, QLD). Register on the http://2014.osdc.com.au/ site, and 
propose a presentation. You can submit as many proposals as you wish, 
and come back to edit them later, so why not get started today?

We have space for sessions, tutorials, hands-on workshops with keyboard 
or soldering iron (or both!) and yes, Miniconfs.

Speakers attend the conference for free; travel and accommodation is 
still your own gig, although we may be able to make arrangements in some 
special cases.

Initial CfP period closes soon, but you only have to get your abstract 
in at this stage, after that you've got quite a bit of time to prep your 
talk or workshop!

Topics
======

While we're looking for presentations related to creation or use of open 
source, naturally, there are many aspects that you could address:

  - Cultivating an open source community – What tools, processes, or 
skills are required to ensure the human aspect of a project are supported?

  - Show casing a successful, or unsuccessful open source 
implemenntations – What did you do well? What did you learn? What would
