AUGUST 2002 MINUTES ARCHIVE
Take a lookie at this little dandy item! SkunkWorks came across this "Key Chain FireWire Hard Drive" and forwarded to link to me. Impressive stats from little beast, it slaughters all other flash drives in speed by a huge stroke! The review says the following in wrap-up; Pros: Frickin' fast!, Bootable on MacOS, Built to last forever. Cons: Somewhat expensive, Brick design is cumbersome, FireWire port should be 'male', Need to carry a cable around, No LED status lights.
"Abattoir Nite Out - Part II"
has closed it's doors on reservations, if you've not yet checked out the
Forums on the Abattoir.BBs, we have a planned outing to see a taping of
Red Green Show on September 18th (...another reason you should have
a login for the Abattoir.BBs
if you don't already... Remember, membership has its privledges...)
I've bought I giant roll of Duct Tape and told the Red Green crew I'm expecting
On very much Abattoir related news, as many of you many now know, our Abattoir SuperFTP Server has been completely rebuilt, we're 350+ Gigabytes of storage strong now and good to go, but with the building of our new Server, we've decided not to copy over the User Base, so you'll all have to email me a new password!
run, I hear the Coke Machine's out of Beer and we still have 3 million
things to do before people start ringing the Abattoir's
doorbell for tonight's Early-Bird
set-up… Have a great and safe long weekend, and if you're coming
to BTM34, we'll
see you tonight or tomorrow!
A big thanks to Peter (Rex) Gaiger at Exahost for his help, we finally have a little DNS action working for us. From this point on, you can reach the Abattoir SuperFTP Server, and the Abattoir Portal Servers at ftp://superftp.abattoir.net and http://superftp.abattoir.net, no more checking for IP's. Thanks again, Pete! You may also notice that the Abattoir Site and Abattoir BBs are running much faster now too... It's a wonder what you can do with a web server that has 11 processors in it, huh? (...inside joke, don't try to understand...)
you can see by the change in our Logo atop, the date's been set for BTM34
"Rock-It!" Edition… Just a short 30
minutes after uploading the top logo, we had 7 registrations come in!
August 31st will be our next gathering, so if you're sure you can make
it, head over to that Sign-Up
page and get your name in fast! I hate announcing this stuph
on the Friday afternoon of a long weekend, I just know a bunch of people
are taking off for the holiday weekend, and by the time they get back,
it might be full… Sorry if this means you, it wasn't on purpose!
Have a great and safe long weekend, don't drink and drive!
