We've scheduled our next meeting for Saturday, February 22nd, with formal talks starting at 2:00 pm. We'll be meeting at our regular spot, Pumping Station: One.

For those who are interested, we'll also have some time before the meeting for some informal project hacking. The informal, pre-meeting hacking will start at 12:00 pm. If you don't want to work on projects, feel free to just show up close to 2:00 pm.

Lincoln Bryant of the University of Chicago will give a talk on how university sysadmins use Puppet to manage their servers. Also, Wally Valters of Matasano Security ( will talk about server security, emphasizing techniques for securing cloud servers.

Hope to see you there!
