|Volunteers for May meeting||Dave Revell||4/25/12 9:42 PM|
We had two volunteers to give a ten minute presentation during May's meeting. If those two people could announce themselves on the mailing list and give us a quick description of their subject, that would be great.
We also need two more volunteers, since we're aiming for a total of four presentations. We're asking for a ten minute presentation on any topic that might be of interest to the group.
I'll conclude my facilitating duties here and leave things in David Price's capable hands.

Here are the PDFs I did three years ago on Linux I/O modeling -
they're a bit sketchy but I have the code stashed up on Github and can
help you get it up and running if you want to do some of this.
