Tomorrow the weather is supposed to play nice all day so we're good to go for our monthly CDBUG meeting. This month will feature speaker David Cross on FreeBSD's GEOM layer, including a demonstration of full disk encryption. Hope to see you there! And bring your friends.

We will be meeting at INOC, 80 State St., Albany. The meeting will begin at 6:45 PM.



One of the most important aspects of running systems is configuring and
managing disks; the FreeBSD "GEOM" system is an extraordinarily powerful
modular system for configuring and controling 'flow' of data through the
system. With this plugin system you can interface with BIOS 'softraid'
systems, partitioning, encryption, device scheduling, remotely attached
storage, multipathing, and caching to just name a few provided modules
on every FreeSBD system. A demonstration of full disk encryption will be
part of the talk.
