Managing Your SPAM

The February meeting of the Front Range UNIX Users Group will be held at 4:00 P.M. on Thursday February 24.

Just when you thought you've had enough of it... The next FRUUG meeting is on spam. Barb Dijker will talk about what it is, how to identify it, how to prevent it, and how to filter it. Most importantly, she'll will tell you what NOT to do. The focus will be on the more well-known email variety, not USENET spam.

Barb Dijker has been fighting and analyzing spam for many years as a consultant and principal in two local ISPs. She's given talks on spam around the globe and has served as an expert witness in a legal case involving spam.

Meeting Location

This meeting will be in room 123 of the CU Academic Computing Center building at Arapahoe and Marine Streets in Boulder. Marine St intersects Arapahoe at 38th St; the Computing Center is on the southwest corner.

FRUUG Library Notes

In our haste to get out last month's meeting announcement, Steve discovered a few more books that we've received that we failed to announce:

  • Essential System Requirements, by Bill Wiley, courtesy of Addison Wesley
  • Java in a Nutshell, by David Flanagan, courtesy of O'Reilly
  • Python Essential Reference, by David M. Beazley, courtesy of New Riders Publishing
  • 13th Systems Administration, 2nd Conference on Domain-Specific Languages, and 2nd USENIX Symposium on Internet Technologies and Systems, all proceedings courtesy of the USENIX Association.

You may check books out using your business card as your library card; you must be on the membership list to check books out. Books are due at the meeting following the one in which they are checked out.

We have recently updated our overdue book list; please make sure that, if we list your name, it's not in error. We count on you returning books on time so that other members may have the chance to use them as well.

Remember that your FRUUG membership entitles you to 20% off books from O'Reilly & Associates when ordered through their toll-free number, (800) 998-9938. Mention discount code DSUG.
