How about a BBQ at one of the lakes? There are also BBQ venues around
ANU, but I'm not sure about availability. The lake might also be a nice
change of scenery. This way, no-one needs to make their home available
(unless they really want to of course).

RE: [clug] December/Christmas CLUG meeting

Good idea, but if we do do this, I would recommend that we organise a few
BBQ's of our own, as the plates at the public ones are generally of an
unknown state of hygiene. I'm happy to put one forward to make up for the
million service calls I always get on a Thursday night, and have therefore
been unable to attend the meetings themselves (silly people waiting till
payday to get their computer fixed.....)

RE: [clug] December/Christmas CLUG meeting

I usually scope out likely locations a few days before to ensure
that the BBQs are clean and serviceable. However, our own BBQ would
make location more flexible, and the available BBQs can get crowded
during the Christmas season. I'll ask around in case I can scounge
one too, I wouldn't mind something portable for trips away...

ACT Parks usually do a pretty good job of keeping the BBQs clean and working.

[clug] Viewing another SSH session?

Hey,

I'm fairly certain the answer to this is, "No way!" but I thought I'd 
check first: I started a process via SSH about 8 hours ago and forget to 
launch it using screen. The process is still running (I can see it in 
the ps list), but it outputs its progress -- and I'd like to see how far 
it is.

So, my question is: Is there any way for me to see the current or last 
few lines outputted to another SSH session?

Thanks,
Avi

There may be other ways, but in desparation you could always try
straceing the process you want the output of to see what it's writing
out...

[clug] USB key recommendations

A change of jobs and an apparent fall in prices[1] makes me want a USB
key now.

Has anyone got any horror stories of buying cheap ones?  I guess I want
fairly rugged build, plus decent read/write speeds, plus write
protection, plus low enough power to run through an unpowered hub (nice
to have).

If I buy one of these no-namers with no specs and no google-found
reviews, what are my chances of getting something that meets my needs?

Is anyone of the opinion that prices will fall further in the near
future?  It seems like a big drop from what they were a few months ago.

Lastly, if anyone's interested in a bulk order to save postage, let's
talk.  Or maybe I'll try the computer fair.

Don't get one that has a separate lid or cap because you will quickly
lose it.  (-:

RE: [clug] USB key recommendations


We bought some Yum-Cha ones from Zytech (http://www.zytech.com.au)
and they seem to work OK.

Mine has started to get a bit intermittent since I left it in my pants
and ran it through the wash a couple of times. Then I ripped the
lanyard loop off when it got caught on a chair. I keep leaving it on
(hot) car seats and at cafes. Still works although it took a few goes
before my desktop recognised it, all my LCA stuff is still there.

With my track record, I'll probably stick with cheap ones. :o)

Re: [clug] USB key recommendations

I have an easydisk stick and it has a removable cap, which I haven't 
lost.  Seems to work on Linux and windows and it is small enough that it 
can actually fit directly into the USB ports that you find on the front 
of computers nowadays without having to use an extension lead.

Cheers,
Simon

Re: [clug] USB key recommendations

I purchased a Transcend 256Mb USB stick for $66 
from a September Computer Fair.

Problems
--------
(1) The LED has never flashed.
(2) Linux/parted did not like the partition structure, possibly 
    something to do with the boot and security "features".
    Once repartitioned it functions fine.

Features
--------
(1) Automagically mounts to /mnt/flash under Fedora Core2.
(2) The packaging included a 50cm USB extension cable (for older
    computers that have USB ports at the back).

It does the job.

Steve.
