Low power, diskless and low cost advances are creating alternatives and opportunities for the organisation to simplify their systems. Some of the results from testing those alternatives with carbon neutral thin client computers, handheld Linux systems and diskless sub notebook computers will be included and discussed in this presentation. If low power and portable networked systems are set to revolutionise the organisation, the CIO needs to be ready. Tom Worthington will demonstrate, citing devices such as the Zonbu Thin Client Computer and the Asus Eee PC. ** Matt Palmer: SNMP: 'e's not dead, 'e's just restin' ** What SNMP is, why it's still useful these days, how easy it really is to get SNMP stuff working, and a tour of a simple way to provide custom data through SNMP. = Meeting Schedule = * 18:15 : Open Doors * 18:30 : Announcements, News, Introductions * 18:45 : General Talk (see above) * 19:30 : Intermission * 19:45 : Split into two groups for * In-depth Talk (see above) * SLUGlets: Linux Q&A and other miscellany * 20:30 : Dinner We hope to see you there! - Sridhar  http://www.atlassian.com  http://tinyurl.com/35fxes
