NYCBUG Monthly Meeting 
Wednesday, March 2nd

6 pm, Soho Apple Store at 103 Prince Street

Michael "Mickey" Shalayeff will talk about the hppa port of OpenBSD 
which he maintains. He maintains many of the applications which run on 
this peculiar platform and will provide some insight to the inquisitive 
as to what this combo can do.

Mickey has contributed heavily to the CARP project which has become 
such a success. It is hard to find some code which Michael has not at 
least influenced in OpenBSD. He seems to be dextrous on any hardware 
platform and is equally well versed in PCI as he is SCSI. Mickey is 
readily available on the message lists and is always happy to help 
impart some of his vast networking knowledge to beggars and sysadmins 
with a smile (;

NYC*BUG tshirts will also be in.  We will be selling them for $15.  
Each has the NYC*BUG logo on the left front breast, and a customized 
dmesg trailing down the back of the shirt.  Anyone who donates $50 or 
more to the OpenBSD Hackathon Fundraiser will receive a tshirt for 

These tshirts are hot.  And supporting the OpenBSD Hackathon 
Fundraiser, which is responsible for so many innovations in *BSD Land 
and beyond, is hotter.
