1. 2nd OpenSolaris User Group meeting on Tuesday, May 31st, tonight!

Tonight is the 2nd OpenSolaris User Group and Darren Moffat will be
speaking on Solaris 10 Security, how to harden up your system, RBAC,
and whatever security goodies he might have up his sleeve (I have left
the presentation up to him).

The meeting will take place at the Sun Santa Clara Auditorium (SCA03),
and here is a link to get directions:

It will be held from 7:30pm-10:00pm.

Most of you probably know where the Auditorium is, but just in case you
don't, use the directions above, or ask someone where it is. It's
fairly easy to get to.

Also, as a bonus we will be getting a quick demonstation of Project
Looking Glass by the X server team. They'll be showing Looking Glass
running on Solaris on x86/x64. A nice little addition to the meeting.

I hope to see a bunch of you there that didn't show up last month. I
have also contacted some of our partners, such as AMD and we'll have
more folks from here show up this month. I also contacted Tyan, but
haven't heard back from them yet.

Where: Sun Santa Clara Auditorium (SCA03)
When:  Tuesday, May 31st, 2005
Topic: Solaris 10 Security
Time:  7:30pm-10:00pm

Hope to see you there! There will be giveaways, and refreshments! These
user group meetings are absolutely free, and everyone is welcome!
