****Donald McCarthy: Introduction to pfSense*

In this presentation I will demonstrate the installation of pfSense from
a USB stick including some basic configuration. There will also be some
video and live demonstration of many of the features of pfSense. pfSense
is more than just a firewall, it is a capable networking Swiss army
knife which is generally only limited by the hardware and imagination of
the user.

*Andrew Harris: Why Your MTA Should Be Your CMS*

There are many options for CMS solutions out there, but it's a tall
order to select one and maintain it so that it's stable, performant, and
secure. Website operators, sysadmins, and content creators are
constantly having to deal with the same old problems of authentication,
spam prevention, and general CRUD functionality. In this talk, I go
through my journey in creating my own email-based CMS, and posit that
many of the features we work so hard to build into our CMS solutions are
already present in the MTA.

*About Andrew*:
Andrew is an SRE with a background in sysadmin and a love for the
esoteric. He enjoys finding cheap, novel solutions to problems, and
takes pride in his bash scripting skills. Once a resident of Phoenix and
organizer of West-side PLUG Stammtische, Andrew now resides in Austin,
TX with his partner and their small horse-like dog.

*Attend the meeting by visiting on June 11th at 7pm MST*


The meeting will start at 7pm at The Desert Breeze Substation. People
start arriving as early as 6pm, so if you would like to help setup
and/or chat for a while, arrive a little early.
*Meeting Location is Virtual*:
