This month: Linux Data Recovery, and How to Avoid It.
Hard drives are getting larger while their warranties get shorter. Disk failure and data corruption are facts of life that no Linux power-user can ignore. Mike Ray, formerly of DataSavers, offers techniques for dealing with your direst disk dilemmas using freely available tools. He also discusses best practices to prevent crisis situations, and offers horror stories from the field for your Schadenfreude.
BALUG meets the third Tuesday of each month at the Four Seas Restaurant in Chinatown. We talk about Linux and share large portions of Chinese food. At only $11.00 per person for dinner, this is one of the best epicurean deals in the city. Dinner starts promptly at 7:10 PM. You're also welcome to meet up with us as early as 6:30 PM by the bar for some social chat, etc. If you can't make dinner, feel free to show up at 7:45 for the talk. Those interested in further libations are encouraged to gather at the Li Po Lounge after the talk, a block down the street at 916 Grant. All BALUG meetings are free and open to the Linux-interested public.
