any thoughts on how to grow our [in-person] group presence?

When managing 2600 meetups and assisting in organizing KYOSS in Louisville I ran into a couple of vectors that assisted in growth.

1) Having regular, known (single) location meetings. (A BIG problem for this LUG)

2) At these meetings having a good educational presentations (obviously bias'd heavily toward deep technical topics)

3) STUDENTS!!! You may be really surprised how many new people you have show up to a meeting from just posting fliers around a campus.

4) Pizza. Geeks are human, and all humans crave pizza.

I was a member a long time ago, and when I say a long time ago, I mean Linux was not available. While it is not free part of the membership fees help fund their offices and meeting space.

Is there any desire to try and setup a LUG meeting? I would like to get together and discuss.

I am definitely going to try to make it to the next one. Monday nights might work for me during the summer, but in just over a month my son resumes Scout meetings every Monday night.

I started out (many years ago!) in the Noob Desert (doesn't everyone start out there? lol)
I quickly moved into an apartment in the Popular Republic of Ubuntu, but the rent was too high, so spent time house-hunting in Xubuntia and Kubuntustan.
A lot of friends moved to the Unity Fortress, but I moved the Rogue State of Mint, and lived for a time in the Mate Fortress.

Eventually I decided to expand my knowledge of the Linux Kingdom, by exploring some of the outlying islands (Highlands of Gentoo, Red Hat Commonwealth), before settling in the Principality of Crunchbang (which I find ironic is no where near the Debian Republic). I eventually moved away from the Principality of Crunchbang.

I currently happily live in the Debian Republic, but I have a summer home up in the Great Compile, and a sea boat parked at Cape Sudo.

Ok, I have a question!! It's related to Linux in that my poor Ubuntu can't connect to the internet at home because of no internet access. Besides, TWC and satellite internet connectivity, is the a place in Lexington that provides internet access? I left out Windstream for a reason lolol.

 #m
 
Thought I would share my latest screenshot.
I worked on both my PS1 config and LS_COLORS.
My PS1 is multiline and multicolor.

While playing around with colors in BASH, I discovered 2 wild things!
First: Everyone knows you can use #m to designate a color, #;#m to designate foreground and background colors, and #;#;#m to designate a modifer for foreground and background colors. I just discovered that you can use #;#;#;#m to apply more than one modifier to a BASH color sequence.
I also discovered a sweet spot where a technicolor rainbow exists (and yet no tutorial online covers this sweet spot?). So I based most of the colors in my LS_COLORS config in this sweet spot.

I'm going to blog about the codegasm I had as soon as it's finished, but I wanted to share this advance preview.

this is mine, adds an extra new line for easier reading, timestamp, user, host and pwd.

export PS1='\n\e[33;01m[$(date +%H:%M:%S)] \e[32;01m${USER}@${HOSTNAME%%.*}:\e[36;01m${PWD/$HOME/~}\e[0m\n\$'

result:

[09:31:26] brian@localhost:/home/brian

and a 100rep bounty offered to the correct answer
I have a TFTP/DHCP/NFS/SMB server (Ubuntu server 12.04 LTS) on 192.168.26.1. I use pxelinux to display a menu containing startup and installation options for Windows, an Ubuntu network installer, and the Linux Mint 17 MATE live CD. Getting it running like this was already nasty and I'm running out of steam... For Linux Mint, I have provided 2 netboot options: NFS and CIFS. I got it fully working with NFS: The user can select it in the boot menu, ...

Here are some commands that can be used to check disk partitions and their details on Linux.
These include fdisk, sfdisk, cfdisk, parted, df, pydf, lsblk and blkid
Here is a quick list of 9 commands that you can use to check the partitions on hard drives and disks on your Linux system and how much space each partition has.

Have a job ... three of them


Morning all

My team at Avnet Services is looking for jr-mid level folks who either know an automation tool already or can be brought up to speed quickly on HP Operations Orchestration (OO - product page from HP http://www8.hp.com/us/en/software-solutions/operations-orchestration-it-process-automation/index.html).

OO is an integration traffic cop for enterprise applications - the hiring manager would call it "scripting for dummies" ... but he doesn't really grok what it does :P

It has native connections to VMware, ServiceNow, Service Manager, HP SA, Remedy, HP NA, WMI, SSH, and hundreds more - and what isn't native can probably be implemented with access to the right WSDL or API calls for the target application.

The job is 100% WFH except when traveling to a customer site (which tends to be in the ~50% range - ie about 2 weeks a month), and is a salaried billable position (ie, the more time working on customer engagements the better :))

If you're interested in knowing more, please email me so I can get you in touch with the hiring manager.
