Newly developed mailling list search engine needs more testing

Hi, everybody.

Firstly, let me introduce myself. I am Choy Kho Yee, an comp. sci.
undergraduate student in Osaka University. For my final year project, I
have developed a mailing list archive management system called "MLwiki".

I have sent mails to some of the mailing lists not so long ago, so that
more people can help me test out this system. I have been getting
supportive answers from the survey about the system.

However, I would like to have more responses about the design and
implementation of the system, so here I sent this mail again. I hope
that you can spare some of your precious time to help me out with this.
If it is proved useful to the community, I would perhaps continue to
work on it.

More information about MLwiki is available on the main page of this
system, which is located at

MLwiki
http://noanoa.ics.es.osaka-u.ac.jp/~k-choy/mlwiki-test/mlwiki.php

and the survey at

The questionnaire
http://noanoa.ics.es.osaka-u.ac.jp/~k-choy/mlwiki-test/mlwiki_questionaire.html

Thanks a lot.

NYCBUG Launches new website

The New York City *BSD User Group (NYC*BUG) web site has been revised
and relaunched at www.NYCBUG.org.

In addition to a large number of enhancements and new features, the web
site is now hosted in a cabinet provided by New York Internet
(www.nyi.net) with a full 10 meg pipe.  Other projects in this cabinet
include BSDCertification.org and OpenBSD's FTP2.USA server
(ftp2.usa.openbsd.org), the NYCBUG Tor node (tor.eff.org) and a good
number of various group and project mailing lists.

The updated and revised applications are all now PostgreSQL-driven, with
the exception of one.  Additionally, since NYC*BUG now hosts the
devices, all monitoring, statistics and administrative tasks have become
easier.

A new online section has been developed for NYCBSDCon
(www.nycbsdcon.org), a *BSD conference that was first held this past
September at Columbia University.  We look forward to this year's
NYCBSDCon being held in an expanded and fuller format in the fall of 2006.

Current online applications that are included and updated include:

dmesgd, a repository for user to submit dmesgs from their *BSD systems.
 The application makes checking hardware compatibility easier with full
text searches.

Library, a section of the NYC*BUG site which contains a number of
documents for *BSD users and administrators.  Contributions are strongly
encouraged.

Speaking of strengthening the BSD community and additional hardware, did
anyone ever get the video from NYCBSDCON `05 up?  I was hoping to share
some of the discussions and Q&A related to SNMP with the Net-SNMP[.org]
community in the interest of raising *BSD community awareness.  There is
an unambiguous lack of cooperation there(1).

LinuxWorld Boston

Hi,

As part of our FreeBSD booth at LinuxWorld Boston this year, we received 
100 free passes to the show. The show is scheduled for April 3-6 at the 
Boston Convention and Expo Center.

If anybody is interested in having some passes mailed to them, please 
send an email with your address to linuxworld at ixsystems dot com.

The pass allows access to:
* Keynote Addresses
* Feature Presentation
* 3 Day Exhibit Hall
* BoF Meetings

This appears to be different than the free passes available on the 
LinuxWorld website, which do not mention access to BoF meetings.

More information on the show can be found at
http://www.linuxworldexpo.com

We will also have a booth for FreeBSD at the LinuxWorld show in San 
Francisco this year. As that show draws near, I will post more information.

Cheers,
-matt

BSD Mall : to hell


Does anyone have a contact at BSD Mall ?

Ordered FreeBSD from them November 5th 2005 and we are almost
at the end of February 2006.

3 monthes and they don't even have in 2 monthes answered any emails
asking for explanations.

I strongly suggest people to avoid ordering from them. I don't know how
they did serve any other members of FreeBSD around but they just take
money, dont send anything and don't care afterwards.

Can't you cancel your payment somehow?

Don't order CDs... They're always way out of date. Nowadays I never receive
a new version CD before the next one is out. Anyway, mine is from freebsdmall,
not BSD Mall.

Downloading the base system is only a few hundred MB, and then only install
the ports you need. It's much more ecological.

Wherever there's people making money out of free software there's dishonesty.

This is untrue.  Many people make money out of free software.  There 
is a long history of it and all of it quite honest.

Sorry. I meant in the CD packing business.

How can it be explained that Red Hat EL sells for a price comparable to some
versions of Windows? At least, at Microsoft they had the costs of producing
themselves a new, modern OS from scratch.
What about some versions of linux totally based on free and GPLed software
selling for $40-50? The price of media?

New, yes
Modern, maybe
From scratch, not really...

Re: freebsd-advocacy Digest, Vol 135, Issue 2

I ordered 6.0 in November as well, and hadn't received it by mid-January.
However, they replied to my email inquiry the same day and three days later
I received my CD set.
