Going Deep - Unix Commands You (Think You) Already Know

 Tue, January 18, 8am . 5pm
 Computer Room, 3720 Green Mount Crossing Drive, Shiloh, IL 62269 
  http://www.computerroom.us/2009/10/class-going-deep.html

 Class: Going Deep - Unix Commands You (Think You) Already Know The UNIX command line is a portal to an astonishing amount of power and control, but most people only use a fraction of the capabilities that are literally at their fingertips. In this class, we'll explore surprising features of familiar commands, learn about useful but lesser-known utilities, and discover how to combine these capabilities in powerful (and often unexpected) ways.

 The price for this one-day class will be $299, with lunch included.

                                                          by Don Ellis


	   Wed, January 19, 11:30am . 12:45pm
	   9500 Manchester Rd, Rockhill, MO 63119 
	    http://snug.sluug.org/

	   A lunch time meeting about SuSE Linux, every 3rd Wednesday at Bandana's Bar-BQ (corner of Rock Hill and Manchester Rds)

	   Seating is limited so please RSVP Gary Hollingsworth by mailto:garyh at itinet.com

ABSTRACT:
	   I will address configuring a set of machines for 
	   development, including: 
	   
	   1) Using a VM as the development machine to avoid cluttering 
	   the main workstation (which may be too small anyway). 
	   2) Using Synergy to allow controlling the VM, the VM host, and 
	   the workstation from the same keyboard. 
	   3) Using DynDNS and reverse SSH to allow accessing the 
	   VM from other locations. 
	   
DETAILS: Sometimes the software workbench requires more space and horsepower than is contained in a portable workstation.  Also, some development tools have conflicting requirements, or cannot be installed in the developer's preferred environment.  One solution is to use one or more virtual machines to host the development environments.  If the VMs are running in a machine other than the primary workstation, the secondary workstation (VM host) can be controlled with the keyboard and pointer (mouse) of the primary workstation using Synergy, which allows quick switching among multiple displays from a single control point.  Suggested configurations will also include use of reverse SSH connections to access a VM running on a remote host.

	      See http://stlouis.pm.org/

	      TOPIC: Winter White Lightning Talks! 
	      Lightning Talks (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightning_Talk) are typically between 5-10 minutes.  The amount of time you will have will be determined by the number folks interested in giving talks.  I'm pretty sure we have a gong too. Also talks do NOT have to be perl related.  I'd love to see a good variety of topics!  Fun is good too. :)

		This month= HTML5 and RIA 
		                          Suggested by: Nicholas Cloud 
		
		# differences between HTML4 and 5 
		# browsers that support HTML5 features 
		# Javascript enhancements (WebSockets, etc.) 
		
		Every month= Developers should not align themselves with platforms and languages, but with principles and ideas.  An "alternative" view of the Microsoft development universe--a view that challenged the "Microsoft-only" approach to software development. 
		
		He distilled his thoughts into four key developer characteristics which form the basis of the ALT.NET philosophy: 1. You're the type of developer who uses what works while keeping an eye out for a better way. 2. You reach outside the mainstream to adopt the best of any community: Open Source, Agile, Java, Ruby, etc. ,,,
