The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, March 11.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:


   FreeNAS enables users to build network-attached-storage (NAS)
   on nearly any hardware platform. The FreeNAS project and
   software were founded in 2005 on the principle that network
   storage be made available to the world at no cost and
   unencumbered by license restrictions.

   FreeNAS provides a solid service platform based on FreeBSD and
   includes such features as replication, data protection,
   backups, encryption, snapshots, file sharing and a plug-in

   Kevin McGregor will present an overview of these features and
   his experiences with implementing some of them.

   For this month's RTFM topic, Adam Thompson will talk about
   quoting special characters in shell input, for example in
   bash(1) or tcsh(1).

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   Please note our *NEW* meeting location for this month: Room 1L08,
   Lockhart Hall, University of Winnipeg, entrance on Ellice Ave.
   between Spence St. and Balmoral St.

   Parking is available on the surrounding streets and in the lots
   on nearby streets.  Look for signage once you're at the building,
   or ask a security guard.
