[OT] Vape supplies

From: Dave Brockman 
I have recently upgraded my vape supplies, and I find myself with a 
surplus of supplies for my previous generation.  I have a few things 
available if anyone wants them (for gratis, although lunch is always 

4 x Sealed T3S KangerTech Tanks w/ 2.2ohm cartomizers
9 x Used T3S tanks (various 1.8-2.2 cartomizers)
1 x (Slightly/Twice) Used T3D Dual-Coil w/ cartomizer
2 x 5 count sealed blister pack 1.8ohm cartomizers
2 x 2.2ohm blister pack sealed cartomizers (partial pack)

EVOD VV Battery - indicates it is charged, but blinks w/ tank

Slightly OT: Remote support tools

From: Mark Quering 
Hey all

I was wondering if anyone in the group had any suggestions on remote
support tools. I am a one man shop at this point that supports a range of
customers from a single home user to small businesses with up to 100 seats
with multiple branches and everything in between. Below I have listed some
of the must haves for the product and I was wondering if you might have
some suggestions for open source products or otherwise that you are using
and would recommend.

-I would prefer owning and hosting myself to avoid ongoing monthly payments
-Multiple platform support for both the guest and host for Win, Linux, and
OS X (bonus for Android/iOS support)
-Support for multi-monitor on the guest and preferably the host as well
-Plays well with Windows UAC (a majority of my customers are Windows shops)
-Allows for remote rebooting/reconnecting of the guest from the host
-Session encryption
-Chat/VoiP support a bonus but not required
-File transfer a bonus but not required
-Extremely easy for the guest to get connected to a support session once
initiated by the host

I am looking very closely at ScreenConnect (screenconnect.com). I spun up
their 30 day trail on a server last week and am playing with it currently.
Pretty happy with what I'm seeing so far. It also bundles remote meeting
and remote access (persistent) along with remote support tools. Thoughts or


OFFER: Avocent DSR2161 12-port KVM switch

From: "Alex Smith (K4RNT)" 
I have an Avocent DSR2161 12-port KVM switch that has been laying out in my
carport for ages.

I don't need it, does anyone here want it?

I'm located near Fayetteville, so meeting up in Tullahoma or Winchester
would be necessary.

Let me know if interested.

ChugaLunch at Mexiville

From: Mike Harrison 
I’m having a long Friday lunch at Mexiville on 800 block of Broad Street starting at 11:45  Today. 

Ya’ll are invited to join. 

Need some (networking, mostly) equipment

From: David White 
I need a lab, and to have a lab, I need equipment.

I'm looking for 1-2 smart (or semi-smart) switches (needs to at least
support VLANs). Cisco would be preferable, and the newer, the better, but
I'm not too picky.

I also need 1-2 dumb switches (don't have to be anything fancy) so that I
can have 'em on hand whenever I or a client has a need for them.

I'm willing to buy lunch, and for some fancier equipment, would be willing
to pay a little something.

Whatca got?

PS... I may have a client who needs a used server within the next few
months which will be running pfSense. Needs to be somewhat beefy to support
a point-to-point VPN, as well as to support content filtering, local DHCP,
and DNS.

Chugalunch: Waterhouse Pavilion/Miller Plaza, All Week

From: Mike Harrison 

So, there is this thing called =93StartUp Week=94 going on in Chattanooga. =

See:   http://startupweekcha.com for details.

Some of it is laughable, but it is an awesome first attempt at such a thing in Chattanooga. Kudos Chattanooga.

Of the kewl, but under-utilized things is the lunch-time venue of Miller Plaza / Waterhouse Pavillion. 

They've got a nice table setup, some apropos soft lunch music, kicking Wifi (now that the dang capture pop-up page is removed) and some lounge chairs.

There is even a drone with camera and an X-Box to play with. Cell phone charging tables.. snacks, schwag.. etc. etc.. =

What there is not is geeks. Or at least, not many. 

So, I'm going to hang here for lunch, from 11:30 until 1 or later, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. 

Ya'lll are invited to join me.

List test and Chugalunch?

From: Mike Harrison 

Seen some people saying things may be weird. It is almost all hallowed thanks mas.. 

So this is a test message. 

On another note: I hear there is killer wifi at Miller Plaza, maybe we need a Chugalunch there Tuesday. 

Chugalunch in Boulder?

From: Eric Wolf 
Sure! I have a very important 1pm appointment that I'll probably need to
help set up for. So earlier is better. We could even call it brunch.

What time do you think you'll be around?

Storage for VMs

From: Dan Lyke 
So the question came up in the SOC meeting this morning...

We've got a lot of VMs, and are going to be spinning up more of them.
Heck, we're tossing a lot of Vagrant around in git repos these days.

We need storage for those.

We're probably below SolidFire's current price range, but we don't
have infrastructure yet, and it isn't unreasonable to think that we
could be in future price ranges there.

I know nothing about the space.

Anyone want to educate me?

to be solved, or want to find a project to participate in, then you should

Drupal Camp Chattanooga 2014 - Sat Sept 13th - Chattanooga State

From: Lee Walker 
I will be running Drupal Camp Chattanooga again this year.
13th Sept 2014.

We will be running the "Drupal in a Day" beginners training again this
year. An all day training class for people new to Drupal. Learn to
build sites in a day. Everyone welcome. Your ticket gets you this, no
need to register for the training explicitly.

We also have more advanced sessions on all kinds of web technologies
(mostly Drupal related).

$25/ticket gets you lunch and a T Shirt, plus a day full of great
people and more information that you can fit in your head in one go!

The Camp is community run, and makes no profit, so if you can see it
in yourself to do a personal sponsorship (+$20) you'll get a big shout
out at the camp and a warm community goodwill fuzzy glow.

If any of you run local tech companies, or can get them to sponsor the
camp that would be most excellent.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Go buy a ticket.....
Try to do so with more than 9 hours to go..... like last year.......
you know who you are..... (cough)David White(cough)  :D
