The trouble with the USPTO

From: Eric Wolf 
------------------------------------------------------
I just got an email from IEEE about a career fair at the USPTO office in
Denver. They specifically are in need of electrical, computer and
mechanical engineers. Seeing the claim of "USPTO was ranked the #1 Best
Place to Work in the Federal Government(R)", I checked the listing on
USAJOBS:

https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/380517100

Entry level will be a GS-7, which means a starting salary below $50K. If I
could get best the education requirements (I know the USGS counted the
number of course hours I had in each subject and used that as a hard gate
for applicants), I'd probably get to start back at my old rank of GS-9 Step
3 with a salary of $56K. Or a little less than half what I make now...

USPTO needs to pay patent examiners competitive salaries or we are going to
continue dealing with Patent Trolls with portfolios of crap patents...

Looking for contractor Technicians

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
I know I probably sound like a broken record, as I've asked this question a
number of times over the past year or two.

But if you know of anyone interested in some freelance / contract /
as-needed PC repair and basic PC troubleshooting & network jobs, please
have 'em contact me: david [at] developcents dot com

Note: if you try to contact me tomorrow or anytime next week, I won't
respond until the following week, as I'm going to be out of town.

But yet again, I've had the situation come up where I need someone to do
something for me because I'm not available to do it (this time it's not an
emergency, thankfully, and I think I have a contractor who can handle the
job - but I need to confirm that by this evening at the latest)

I'm baaaaaaack!

From: Ed King 
------------------------------------------------------
Got bumped off the list back in mid May due to "too many bounces".    Been checking chugalug.org webpage occasionally for any job announcements or hardware sells/freebies ;-)

I stayed unsubbed for awhile (and missed Hack-a-nooga too) because I needed to focus on our latest and biggest client rollout, which went "live" on 6/2/2014.    To "save money" we switched hardware platforms a few weeks before rollout (went from $800 kids-toy netbooks to $300 Dell Venue tablets), but the software platform stayed the same (albeit with some custom mods for the new client):    lamp stack (linux/apache/php/mysql) on qemu.    Why are we running in a vm/emulator?  Well its a long story but a previous 3rd party vendor wrote our field software.  This 3rd party vendor required Windows netbooks.  Their software was slow and flakey (as you'd expect from dot-net) so we ditched them and rewrote the field software in-house (like we wanted to do in the first place, and we did it in less than half the time, and still had more features and flexibility!).    But... we couldn't just throw out twenty $800 netbooks, so we leveraged that hardware "investment"
 by using qemu to run our lampp stack, thinking that it would also be portable if we ever moved to android (does anyone know of a qemu package for android that doesn't SUCK?)

Back-end:   For "security" this client did not want their data on the same server as our other clients, so I set up a new Debian server just for them.  HTTPS and automated sftp file transfers. 

Well now that this new client is up 'n running, I figured it was time for me to re-sub, so...  I'm back.  This new client is our biggest client to-date, and has doubled the amount of inspectors in the field (and doubled the data collection too...  thank goodness we solved that mysql lock problem we used to have).   Things are running smoothly!   I dare say that the support calls have somehow decreased (oh great, now I've jinxed us).    

Props to our little I.T. team:    Danny "dj" Smith Jada "coldfish" Case, and Master Ed :)









Need 48-port switch (nothing fancy)

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
Anyone have any old 48-port switch I could take off your hands (or pay you
a little something)? Doesn't need to be anything fancy. A 10/100 would
do... I just need something so that I can work on a bunch of PCs for a
client at once.

If I can keep it (or pay you a little bit, even, so I *can* keep it),
that'd be even better.

I lent my Catalyst 4000 to someone, and besides, that's really bulky anyway
for going to on-site jobs like the one I'm getting ready to do next week.

Thanks!

Chloe and I emailed back and forth quite a bit late last week as she worked
on this article. A few of you, in past emails, asked to see the FCC's
statement.

Here's the full text of the FCC's proposal, dated May 15 (I sent this to
Chloe, too).

As someone who is sometimes active in the EMA community , the fact that we  
might just throw away that copper infrastructure scares me.
A lot of times in a disaster there is no home power but the copper twisted  
pair still just works.

As to your second point I give you that. Until EPB , I didn't have choice  
AT&T doesn't even offer DSL at my current location.
I will give comcast this one point. The do have local customer service. Ma  
Bell hasn't had that in Chattanooga in a long time.
In fact my sister law had to move to Nashville when Bellsouth moved all  
those jobs to Nashville.

Getting Chromium OS Flash drives into people's hands

From: Phil Shapiro 
------------------------------------------------------

At my public library job I love showing people how they can turn their regular Wintel laptop into a Chromebook by booting a Chromium OS Flash drive. This works on laptops from about 2005 onwards whose BIOS can be set to boot from USB. If a laptop's hard drive is broken or if the laptop is infected with viruses, I tell them they can walk away from me with a working computer (booting from flash drive). I say, "You can have this flash drive. I'd just ask you to reimburse me for it..." 


Anyway, I'm getting ready to bid on these 20 USB Flash drives on eBay this evening (Saturday), where I'll be able to pick up a bunch of flash drive for $4 (or less). Just wanted to check to see if anyone in Chugalug wanted half of these
