This might be of interest to those in NYC...

Getting BSD onto an 8 or 16MB Compact Flash is interesting.
Small devices with no real write space, perhaps little RAM
by modern standards....

Security is a little tighter in NYC this month that many places,
so advanced planning is helpful.

Hello All;

Just a final reminder that this months NYSA presentation will
be held tomorrow, time and location all below. 

Ken Rice of the emBSD ( Project is our guest speaker
this month. I also understand that Ken is looking for volunteers
with the emBSD Project. Many people are presently using emBSD or
some other form of embedded BSD or Linux for many uses, including
but not limited to, firewalls. Come and find out why.

Please try to provide me with your full name so that I can arrange
for a building pass into 9 West 57th Street. 9 West 57th Street
is conveniently located to all modes of transportation, including
a bike rack out in front. 9 West 57th Street is between 5th and
6th aves and has a BIG red 9 out in front.

Again, please drop me a line with your name. We will also try to 
have a member of the board present in the lobby for all of you
who didn't have the time to reply to me :) This however is not

We have arranged a special guest speaker, Mr. Ken Rice.

Our presentation topic will be: Embedded BSD

What is embedded BSD?
Why BSD?
Why OpenBSD?
The Make Process
Modifying the existing release build scripts and Makefiles.

Ken Rice has 10+ years in the technology industry.

Formally trained by the military as a Communications Tech, Ken
