    OpenDNS provided a great venue, drinks and food. They created a great environment in which we could all meet and talk easily. Mike, the CTO of Strutta, put on an entertaining presentation, too.

      The stairs might have been a better idea to counter act the beer and pizza consumption!

    Hey Everyone!

    We are looking forward to seeing all of you tonight! Just a little information re: the OpenDNS space and accessing the office.

    Please look for OpenDNS on the board and dial the access code to be buzzed in to the event. The OpenDNS office is on the 5th floor... one small issue - their elevators just broke down! Not sure they will be fixed in time for the event tonight so wear your running shoes as you will need to climb 5 flights of stairs! Our apologies for this unforeseen circumstance! See you all at 8 pm! Cheers,

    Anne-Marie

    Looking to hire: A friend uses email blasts to his clients, to inform them of his latest projects. Normally he gets extremely high response rates, as his email list only has those who are interested in his work or know him personally. Ever since he brought on a new guy for IT, the response rate has plummeted. A few of his clients and investors call him to see if he's still around, complaining that they aren't getting his emails at all. So what he needs is someone who can fix this email issue. It appears the new IT person is using a system that causes the emails to get filtered into the spam box. It looks like this is a problem that could be solved quickly by someone with good competence and experience. My friend is offering an extremely generous incentive bonus for successful leads, and so a few minutes of work could be quite lucrative! The person or team should be based here in Vancouver. Please contact me if you can help.

      I'll recommend chimpmail .
      If you they need some help with that or the other thing I'm James[masked]
      To keep the story simple it seems a few months ago a spamhause (i think it was) was attacked and the world is still suffering. This should have resolved for the most part by now, you may need to ask the provider or switch to a better or compliant one. Basically certain IPs get blocked and the providers are now more challenged to get their IPs unblocked.

    Hey HackerNest Vancouver community! Looking forward to another exciting event Monday. Thank you Cameron, Anne-Marie for organizing it. Some of you may remember the "WTF memo" I read at our meetup back in March. The message was from an upset hacker who wanted to help his friend who had diabetes Type 2. He couldn't understand why hackers are not building something useful and meaningful that can actually save lives or make a difference in peoples' lives and instead they go for the fluff or another restaurant reviews app or stuff like that that has been done and overdone a million times. I'd like to invite you to INTERFACE 2013 Digital Health Summit, oct. 9-11, Vancouver. Save $100 if you register before midnight October 4th and even get a SHINE by Misfit Wearables for FREE.

    REGISTER TODAY: www.interfacesummit.com I hope to see you at the summit!
