I'd love to attend. Alas, I have cancelled two other events, to attend a
third on this same night. Will there be any notes taken and shared on
the list here after the presentation?

>(from few to many). From Dan:
>"During the last 10 years of system administration I have been
>involved in a number of data center migrations and build-outs.
>As these projects came and went I began to see patterns emerge
>in the set of services and software required to run a
>successful operations infrastructure. This presentation will
>describe these patterns, and provide an overview of the Open
>Source software available to implement them."
>Dan Hanks has been involved with Linux System administration

>Provo, which, in a sense, was the birthplace of PLUG. After
>EagleNet he worked as a systems and database administrator for
