NMGLugers, I received a notice that this weekend is the virtual LibrePlanet
conference. If you are a member of FSF "you get extra perks." I may attend
as I have not done this in the past - never able to travel on their
schedule, etc. It should be interesting.
I hope this week, tomorrow, 5:30pm MDT, we can meet virtually again for the
NMGLUG, maybe hear how LeRoy is doing with "Suspend" and others working on
that issue. We were also going to pick up on containers at some point, but
maybe not just yet. I will follow that discussion, but maybe a brief
discussion of virtual machines vs containers would add some perspective.
Thank you, Ted P.
