August 2008

I started the meeting with a presentation on using OpenBSD as a remote MP3 player using OpenBSD, mpd, icecast, ssh and mplayer. I use this to listen to music on my laptop wirelessly (in a DMZ) and the MP3 files are on my OpenBSD server on my LAN. It's secure and easy to use.

We followed this up with Patrick's suggestion for a round table discussion on some "Best Practices." This was a very informal discussion that covered things like shell configuration files, using OpenSSH's multiplexing and dynamic port forwarding, shell command history using, set -o emacs/vi and more.

We then made our way to The Green Turtle for more casual BSD discussions and food (and drink). Thanks to everyone that made it.
