Time: 	6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Location: 	LVL1 Hackerspace, 814 East Broadway (rear), Louisville KY 40204


	*Something for everyone tonight: cli stuff (pipes, named pipes, and 
process substitution), OpenNMS (network management system), usNIC 
(userspace NIC) for faster ethernet communications. *
------------------------------------------------------------------------

	Three great topics tonight (and something for everyone!):

  * *Command Line Magic* - Barton will give us a few tricks for using
    the command line effectively: pipes, named pipes, and process
    substitution. Here's what got the topic started:

  * *OpenNMS* - Deven will tell us about Open Network Management System
    (http://www.opennms.org/), must-know stuff if you use networks
    (which, you may have noticed, you are doing right now).

  * *usNIC (userspace NIC)* - Jeff will be telling us about how to get
    ultra low latency ethernet communications by bypassing the operating
    system. This will be a technical presentation that will look at the
    low-level operations involved in ethernet communications. (Jeff
    develops open source software (OpenNMI) for Cisco, and it looks like
    usNIC will soon be part of OpenNMI.) You can get a glimpse of what
    he'll be talking about by skipping 20 pages or so (the marketing
    hype) into this slideshow:

  * *Free OPA Pizza* - treat yourself to some free Papa John's pizza,
    compliments of the Open Pizza Alliance (in exchange for a brief
    solicitation for your membership and support).

=======================================================
All things Linux. All things Open. Come and meet your fellow geeks. 
Discuss open source, open data, transparency, security, encryption, 
intellectual property, spontaneous organization, erlang, pizza, etc.
