Stoked about new Dropbox Pro features

https://blog.dropbox.com/2014/08/introducing-more-powerful-dropbox-pro/

I was always pissed you had to pay for dropbox for teams to get this...
Looks like they've moved most of the teams/business features to the pro
account.

EPB Running Cat5 in homes for gig service??

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
I just moved and had a technician come out to do the EPB install (actually
he's still here as there might be a problem with the ONT).

He tried to tell me that you don't need Cat6 for sustained gig speeds and
that the standard EPB install, regardless of the speed you get (I ordered
the 100mb, so don't much care).

This doesn't sound right to me. I am surprised EPB isn't using Cat6 from
the fiber handoff to the RJ45 jack, especially for 1gb orders.

Thoughts?

Onionshare and Vokoscreen

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


Whoops, that is supposed to be Vokoscreen, not Sokoscreen. 


The way I remember Voko is that it sounds like Volkswagen -- and the 
software comes from Germany. If only there were a Volkswagen plant 
in Chatt. If only....

It would be fun to do a screencast showing a live gigabit file transfer between two 
ordinary houses (or apartments) in Chatt. You could likely transfer 10 GB in less 
than five minutes -- if you had Core i7 computers on both sides. 


Here is the screencasting software that might work well for that task.

If only there were someone from MAKE magazine in Chugalug who could write up 
a blog post about such an experiment. If only....

Oooh, it would be hilarious to show such a file transfer with an insert video of Windows 7 
booting up on a 2008 or 2009 computer. The 10 GB file transfer might complete before 
Windows 7 reaches the desktop.

6-port or 8-port dumb switch?

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
Anyone got any of these smaller switches laying around? Need 1 for my
church, and would like to have a spare for myself on hand (so I want two
total).

I will buy you a burrito or something...

Doesn't need to be anything fancy - even 10/100 would be fine, although
gigabit would be great.


If no one has anything laying around, then I'll just buy something off
Amazon, I suppose.

Chatt's first edcamp coming up in August, 2014

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


Edcamp's are wonderful unconferences where teachers and others who care about learning 
gather together and spontaneously share questions and answers in sessions that are determined 
on the morning of the event. I recently found out about this edcamp taking place in Chatt. 




"The first edcamp in Chattanooga, TN, will be held August 23, 2014. Free. All invited. Follow at @ edcampGigCity " 


Thanks for spreading the word to anyone you know who would be interested in attending. 


phil 


If you know folks in Atlanta who might want to attend, it's possible to reserve a round trip Megabus ticket 
for that day for a grand total of $8. If a person is able to travel on Friday, August 22, 2014 -- the round 
trip ticket to Chatt would be $2.

Ruby Dev

From: Mike Harrison 
------------------------------------------------------

I just met an above average Ruby and Ruby on Rails guy from Australia
whome just moved to Chattanooga from Sydney Australia so his wife could be 
closer to home.

He has an impressive resume and a deeper than "just a rails dev" set of 
skills. He is also entertaining leaving Chattanooga because finding a good 
job in his core skill set is difficult,

I'm posting his resume (text extract) in hope the Chugalug Gestalt can 
keep a guy like this in Chattanooga. He's only been here a few weeks and
dispite all the GigCity buzz, can't find a fit for his caliber.

The bad text formatting is my fault.. his PDF resume is pretty neat and 
clean.

if a 64 bit machine has 4 gig max,

From: Rod 
------------------------------------------------------
What other bonus of using a 64 bit OS are there, other than addressing  
more than 4 gigs of Ram?

Had a 64 bit dual core laptop come into my possession but it is limited to  
4 gigs.
So i'm trying to decide whether use a 64 bit version of linux or 32.

Using a tablet as a music front-end

From: Dan Lyke 
------------------------------------------------------
I currently have a laptop running Linux plugged in to our stereo as
our music player. This is klunky and big.

I have a first gen iPad, and can see buying an Android 4.1 or 4.2
tablet (or may be able to repurpose an old 2.2 phone) to be a better
audio source.

Anyone got suggestions on how to serve either of these platforms off
of a Linux server? I see forked-daap, and there are a few daap clients
on Android and iOS (and the iOS one is old enough that it might not
have been 7-ified and still work on the 1st gen iPad).

Something else I'm not seeing? Spend the extra mumbledy for a 32 gig
tablet and just copy everything to it? Anyone done it?

Mozilla Gigabit Community Fund for Nonprofits

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
I just sent this email to several of my clients and other nonprofits with
whom I have a relationship here in Chattanooga. I thought many of you would
be interested in this as well:

Friends, Clients and Colleagues:
I'm writing to let you know about an exciting opportunity, available to
Chattanooga-based nonprofits and educational institutions. Please consider
helping me spread the word, and inviting those in your networks to attend
this exciting event. You can also view this letter at
http://developcents.com/gigabit-community-fund-nonprofits.">http://developcents.com/gigabit-community-fund-nonprofits.

Last November, Mozilla announced the Mozilla Gigabit Community
Fund.
Following the larger Mozilla Ignite Apps Challenge
Program,
the Gigabit Community Fund is only made available to the cities of
Chattanooga, TN and Kansas City, MO due to our easy access to gigabit-speed
internet.

On February 6, 2014, Mozilla will host a Gigabit Community Kickoff Event at
the 4th Floor of the
Library(in
partnership with the National Science Foundation, Department of
Education, and US Ignite), making available *$150,000 to area
nonprofits*to support development and experimentation of education and
workforce
development-focused uses of emerging technologies.

As an IT professional heavily involved with the nonprofit community in
Chattanooga, I have agreed to participate in this kickoff event by
facilitating some of the sessions and helping educators, nonprofits and
technologists like yourself conceptualize ideas for projects (websites and
internet applications) that could take advantage of high-speed internet for
the good of the community. We at Develop CENTS
are also helping to promote the event.

If you are an educator, nonprofit organization, community activist, or a
technologist, please consider joining us on Thursday, February 6, at
11:00am.

Until then, please begin to think about some of your organization's
greatest needs and how internet applications that rely on high-speed
internet could meet those needs. Again, your project will ultimately need
to address an educational or workforce development problem, and should rely
on Chattanooga's gigabit internet.

If you're unsure what this could look like, then simply begin by writing
down your organization's pain points. Folks including myself will be
available throughout the day to help mesh your needs with concrete ideas
and examples of websites or internet applications that could help meet
those needs.

Mozilla=92s mission is to build a web where people know more, do more and d=
o
better. The goal of the Fund is to:

   1. Build a network of educators, designers, catalysts and technologists
   building prototypes of projects that leverage gigabit technology as
   learning platforms
   2. Empower educators to explore and experiment with cutting edge
   learning tools
   3. Teach both the production and application of tools designed to deepen
   the learning of its users
   4. Shape the environments for what is possible and needed in the
   emerging gigabit economy
