his presentation will cover a project to assemble a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device using a new HP Proliant MiniServer Gen. 8 and FreeNAS, Version 9.2.

There was a recent request to have the ability to create polls to post questions to the NOVALUG audience, so we have gone ahead and enabled that option for all registered users.
You will be able to create/edit/delete your own polls and set time limits to the polls.
If anyone has any question or problems about using the polls feature or any other parts of the NOVALUG website please post your questions on the forums or the mailing list.
I recommend the Forums on the site as it is an excellent place to have "OT" discussions. (just my humble opinion)

Research paper writing entails intricate step-by-step procedure. Therefore, it is essential to manage every step meticulously in order to produce a quality research paper. Here’s the step-by-step procedure towards efficient research paper management:
STEP 1. Select a topic
Choose a topic that stimulates interests and challenging. The attitude towards a topic determines the amount of effort and enthusiasm exerted on a study. Focus on a limited aspect and select a subject that is manageable. Avoid topics that are too technical or those that only has scarce source materials.
STEP 2. Gather data
There are many ways to gather the necessary details of the study – on the Internet, in the library and other electronic resources. In gathering data, it is relevant to jot down full bibliographical information of the source like the author, title, URLs, and date of publication. Keep in mind that a study without bibliographical information is irrelevant since source is not cited.
There's a long running "discussion" about whether Mono and apps written in .NET/C# should be included, nay- used, in Linux. Apparently, Richard Stallman doesn't think so... [Thanks to Slashdot for the reminder] He doesn't really go into the details as to why, but rather appears to be using his "status" to be enough justification to his argument.
If you are open minded and not simply a Microsoft basher, check out this fantastic explanation on Why Mono Doesn't Suck to hear the other side of the story. Then make up your own mind.
