Holiday Meeting: Your Tips as Presents
6:45 pm, Suspenders Restaurant
December`s meeting will be an opportunity for an array of people to
illustrate their Unix hacks.
In August, Dru Lavigne started a thread on NYCBUG`s talk about "fave BSD
tips/tricks?" that brought out some good discussion. We see this meeting
as a follow-up, and an opportunity to give your hacks "back to the
community" as a holiday gift.
Please submit your one page PDF to admin@, with one, two, or even three
simple tips. It might be simple and seemingly stupid, but it could save
a few minutes a day for another developer or sysadmin in the meeting.
It could be a creatively piped set of commands, or a simple script that
you run through periodic to prevent headaches. The field is wide open.
We will schedule a handful of ten minute or so speakers, and let the
crowd take it from there.

Be sure to participate in the BSD Certification Job Task Analysis Survey
by the end of the month.
It's a vital contribution everyone can make towards not just setting the
standard for the next BSD Cert exam, but also since it provides a
useful, open-sourced pool of data about *BSD admins and developers.
