free devlab

From: gary hasty 
------------------------------------------------------
FYI, if anyone's thinking about coming down for the AT&T hackathon this
weekend we're also having a devlab session during the day at the foundry:

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/devlab-by-att-atlanta-speech-in-app-messaging-advertising-apis-and-appcelerator-workshop-registration-10516496123

OT bugs and code quality

From: Christopher Rimondi 
------------------------------------------------------
For those of you are on/lead teams of developers or engineers what do you
do keep everyone focused on reducing bugs and thinking through the impact
of changes? I get there is a lot that can be done with unit and integration
testing and formal QA. However, what I am asking centers more on keeping
quality front and center in the team's mindset.

There is probably no easy answer to this but, how do you separate bugs that
are caused from "moving fast/meeting deadlines" versus we probably should
have caught this one?

Went to the DC423.org meeting last night, saw an interesting presentation 
by  Stephen Hilt about a "leach" embedded controller he had built..
learned about "dronecell" a neat little GSM/GPRS module..added to a 
Raspberry Pi made an interesting useful remote device. Very small.

And Dr. D. kept playing with a nice little micro quadcopter... which I

Linux on Curriculum at Chattanooga College

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

Partially thanks to Daniel Applegate, I got roped into
being on the advisory board at Chattanooga College (formerly ECPC).

Ok. Stop Laughing. 3+ months ago that would have been appropriate 
snickering. Things have changed.

Terry Parker took over a few months ago and has completely 
rebuilt a jobs skill focused IT program. That means it's mostly 
MS-centric, with apropos certifications (A+/CompTIA/Microsoft/Cisco..)
and focus as well as a two year Associates Degree. All new intructors, new 
computers, new labs.. an amazing transformation in about 3 months with 
more on the way.

It also includes Linux (Redhat RHCE focused) in the curriculum
as a major chunk of time! Mostly as a server it seems... but it's awesome
to see it blocked out in the curriculum formerly.

Which brings me to: NICE FACILITIES FOR MEETINGS/EVENTS

Terry would like to get more cross-pollination of the students
with local IT-centric groups, and offers some meeting/classroom
space as bait. There has been some talk about a pseudo-formal 
educational/presentational meeting or more (a half or full day)
this might be good for both groups. Of course, his interest is bringing in 
fresh perspectives, energy and people for his students as well as 
potential students or people wanting certifications.
We get a chance to share Linux/FOSS/etc..  and infect these soon to be 
corporate M$-Lackeys with a subversive strain of intelligence.


Terry is:  Terry.Parker@epbfi.....  (you can guess the rest)
if anyone wants to take him up on that offer and contact him about 
availability.

Soliciting Location Suggestions for next Chugalug Meetup

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
As many of you recall, we had a Chugalug meetup back in June that I had
helped plan, but then had to bail at the very last minute and miss the
meeting (which I was disappointed about).

That was hosted on the 4th Floor of the Library.

I tried a couple months ago to nail down another date for hosting a similar
event, but that failed miserably due to a number of reasons.

I want to try doing it again, soon, but we will likely be looking into
doing it at a different venue (also for multiple reasons).

I'm still willing to help take a lead role in planning and organizing the
event / meetup / lining up speakers, but if folks wanted to help, I'd
welcome the help.

The main point of this email is to solicit suggestions for a possible venue
(besides the 4th Floor) for a similar type of event - a half-day meeting of
workshops (possibly break-out style), hardware swap, etc...

The goal is to maybe even turn this into a regular occurrence (Quarterly?),
and the ultimate goal is to attempt a Chattanooga Technology Conference in
the next year or two that many of you will recall was discussed about very
early this year.

Anyone have space we could use for a half-day meetup, and/or have
suggestions for such a space? A caveat is "free" would be very, very nice
(and almost mandatory).

Also, contact me if you want to help with the next meetup and/or help with
the longer-term brainstorming and planning for an actual (well
though-through, well planned, well executed) conference.

Forum vs Listserv

From: Mike Harrison

On Mon, 16 Sep 2013, Mike Robinson wrote:

Been nice knowing you... but I hope you stay.

Chugalug has been active since 1999. It's evolved a little since then,
and will evolve more over time. "Listserv" suck, "WebForums" suck..
both have different reasons they are each superior and inferior.
Those reasons are often different for different people.

I'll admit the recent foray into PGP/GPG and signatures has added noise to 
the list, but it is part of the evolutionary process of both the list and 
the technologies being used. The biggest factor is the people involved and 
their behaviors.

Chugalug has existed for 14+ years under my personal benevolence as an 
experiment in communal anarchy and community as much as it is a "LUG".
Its flavor dates back to the hobbies (and businesses) of several of the 
founding members that ran Bulletin Board Systems (BBS's) including myself.

If the community decries posting PGP/GPG sigs as antisocial behavior,
the more socially aware members MIGHT not post them to the list.
They might, just because they can. I'd like to let the community work that 
out over time.

My personal gripe of top posters that don't trim is a common one
for many of my more e-mail list savvy generation. While I don't like
PGP Signatures that are invasive in the body of the email compared to MIME 
attachments, I understand the tools being used and their reasons. I'd 
rather see a post from Dave or Dan with such "noise" than not have them 
post. I swap back and forth from using PINE and Apple Mail, I usually see 
-everything- in PINE and only the relevant part in Apple Mail. Maybe your 
choice or configuration of e-mail interface is part of the issue?

===Anyway, back on topic:======

A web forum.

0.  I won't host any commonly available web forum (Simple Machines Forum, 
PhpBB, etc.. ) on my personal server. I have in the past and they are so 
full of exploits and management overhead as to be not something I want to 
deal with. Anything with session/cookie based auth is a pain. Once upon 
a time I hacked SMF to use Basic Auth.. worth using.

1.  If anyone wants to set one up and host it and manage it, I'd happily 
point some DNS hostname's to it.. join the fray, explore how it worked 
with the community.

2. My personal experience with Web Forums is the tend to race to the 
bottom. The listserv format is the only barrier to being a member of 
Chugalug, and posting/conversing to 250+ people, it's just enough of a 
technical barrier to be desirable.

3.  Viva la Revolution! If the community organizes a revolt with enough 
long term commitment to be credible, I'll graciously concede. I'm a member 
of some other "LUGS" that die and rebirth every few years, fighting over
control, format, agenda, mission, checkbook, 501c3 status, meeting 
locations...

======Just saw the post about: reddit  http://www.reddit.com/r/chugalug/

Awesome. Works for me.. We could even setup a cross-posting mechanism....
a redirect.. All things are possible.

I've also seen Linked In Forums, IRC chats..  All good. Welcome to 
socially responsible anarchy. This is a "Society of Independant People"
and you can be an active force in it.

ButterFly ASIC Single arrived -- My review

From: Lynn Dixon 
------------------------------------------------------
For those interested in Bitcoin on the lug, I have finally received my
first Butterfly Labs Single.

Here's a quick review:
Well packaged during shipping, and was shipped USPS 2-day priorty mail with
signature required.

The build quality is fantastic.  Really nice brushed aluminum black case
that has rounded edges and corners, and a nice laster etched Butterfly Labs
logo.  The power supply brick was about 1.5 times larger than your typical
Xbox 360 power brick for comparison.  The power brick has a built in
cooling fan which I thought was pretty slick. The ASIC miner uses PCI-e
power connectors and the power brick is outfitted with PCI-e plugs as well.
 Overall its a very well designed and well built piece of hardware.  I am
really happy with it.

Now, the good part. How well does it run?  In a nutshell...like a dream.
 It has been a little over 24 hours, and it has already generated me just
over .5 BTC (about $70). It has some really powerful fans that are a bit
louder than I had hoped, but I honestly can't hear it in my datacloset.  I
used BFL's EasyMiner for the first 24 hours just to get the full
experience.  I am planning on swithching over to CGMiner in afew days.

Here is a screenshot of Easyminer, and the performance:
http://i.imgur.com/smdFgjD.jpg

Another screen snippet of the asic running compared to one of my GPU's on
EclipseMC mining pool:  http://i.imgur.com/5ozLrQa.jpg

EasyMiner has a cool "earnings" section that pulls the latest difficulty
and latest exchange rates to give you an idea of your scheduled earnings.
 Right now, its looking like this 60GH/s rig should return about $2000 per
month. This is pertty consistent with all of the other ROI calculators I
have used.

Financial analysis:
At the current difficulty and exchanges, this rig should generate about .45
- .5 BTC per day, which is about $65 - $70 average per day.  Most
calculators I have used puts monthly revenue at around $1800 - $2000 per
month.
Here is my numbers plugged into TheGenesisBlock's calculator:
http://mining.thegenesisblock.com/a/5f1c18143a

I purchased my 60 GH/s unit for about $1375 back in June of last year, and
I am figuring about a 3 to 5 week payoff period, and calculating a 75%
increase in difficulty per month in my ROI estimation.

This thing was well worth the wait. Butterfly labs may be horrible at
meeting deadlines, but they are really good at designing a product. This
thing runs great, looks awesome, and is generating an impresive ROI.  After
mining with it for a full day, I have already placed my pre-order for some
Monarchs:
https://products.butterflylabs.com/homepage-new-products/600-gh-bitcoin-mining-card.html

Feel free to discuss, but please, lets keep this BTC thread civil and on
topic :-)

noogaJS - Chattanooga JavaScript Community

From: Andrew Pierce 
------------------------------------------------------
If you were at Code & Creativity (I know Mike H. was) or DevLink this week,
you may have heard about a new User Group starting up here focused on
JavaScript. Brian Hooper and I are starting this group up and I wanted to
extend an invitation to everyone here on CHUGALUG.

Love it or hate it, JavaScript is hot. And that's a huge understatement. If
you're doing web development, you're probably dealing with some JavaScript
no matter what's on your back end, PHP, Ruby, C# (yuck), or whatever. We
want to help bring JavaScript developers together for learning, networking,
and eating lots of pizza.

We have speakers lined up for the rest of the year and we really hope to
see you there. Our web site is http://noogajs.org and you can follow us on
Twitter at http://twitter.com/noogajs.

The first meeting will be at Unum on September 24, 2013. Pizzas (and you)
should show up at 5:30pm and the speaker, Jim Cowart, will begin his
presentation at 6:00.

Beginning in October, we will be moving the meetings over to the 4th Floor
of the downtown library where Dan Eveland and company are doing some
awesome things.

The plan is for the meetings to be held the 4th Tuesday of every month with
the exception of November and December when we'll back them up a week due
to the holidays.

I'd really love to see as many as can make it at the meetings and
participating. If you'd like to present, we are working on filling the 2014
calendar so you've got time to get something together.

Thanks!

Cray CS300-AC - Presentation - Monday

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

See http://www.chattanoogaengineersclub.org for more info.

Meeting at Doubletree Hotel downtown at Noon.
I suggest showing up at 11:30-11:45.
Sit close to the screen.
Ask good questions and applaud.

Unfortunately, I won't be there, I'll be in Alaska.
But hopefully some of you will.

If a bunch of you decide to go, let Tim Lee (email attached in CC)
know so there will be plenty of food.  You can attend as a "guest" for 
free and no food if you sit in the chairs along the wall.

The Chattanooga Engineers Club has been Sharing Ideas at weekly meetings 
since 1924. This is an excellent example of why Chattanooga rocks!


------------------------------------------------------------------------
Monday, July 1st:
“Performance Metrics and Application Experiences on a Cray CS300‐AC™ 
Cluster Supercomputer Equipped with Intel® Xeon Phi™
Coprocessors,” Dr. Vincent Betro, ORNL/UTK


In this talk, Dr. Betro will show the comparative performance and scaling 
of Gyro on four generations of Cray supercomputers simultaneously 
including the newest addition - the Cray CS300-AC™ Cluster Supercomputer 
(which is currently #1 on the Green 500 list) and the Cray XC30.  Dr. 
Betro will also show that the recently added hybrid OpenMP/MPI 
implementation shows a great deal of promise not only on traditional HPC 
systems that utilize fast CPUs and proprietary interconnects but also on 
coprocessor architecture in a cluster environment in native mode. 
Moreover, several applications which have been ported to the Intel Xeon 
Phi coprocessor will be discussed, and limitations and successes will be 
explained.  Four machines of varying sizes were used in the experiment, 
all of which are located at the National Institute for Computational 
Sciences at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and Oak Ridge 
National Laboratory. Darter is a 23,936 core Cray XC30 with Intel E5-2670 
CPUs, a Dragonfly network, and a Sonexion lustre file system; Kraken is a 
112,896 core Cray XT5 with AMD Opteron™ Istanbul CPUs; Ares is an 896 
core Cray XE6 with AMD Opteron™ Interlagos CPUs; and Beacon is a 1,024 
core Cray CS300-AC™ Cluster Supercomputer with Intel® Xeon® E5-2670 
(Sandybridge) CPUs and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors.  The advantages, 
limitations, and performance of using each system are discussed, as well 
as the direction of future optimizations.
