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 
(http://lists.nycbug.org/pipermail/talk/2009-August/012665.html) 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.

The BSD Certification Group's Jobs Task Analysis survey is open until

USENIX has posted a number of their upcoming events for 2010 in our 
"Events & Cons" section on NYCBUG.org.  We strongly recommend that you 
look at the listing and continue to support USENIX, who are not only a 
vital part of the Unix community, but also have generously supported 
NYC*BUG for a long while.
