Boston Linux Meeting, Wednesday, July 19, 2017 - Quick Hits Redux: Updates on Solar-Powered Linux Projects

When: July 19, 2017 7:30PM (7:00PM for Q&A) *** Note time change ***
Topic: Quick Hits Redux: Updates on Solar-Powered Linux Projects
Moderators: Ed Rohmer, Kurt Keville, Brian DeLacey
Location: MIT Building E-51, Room 315 **Note room change
*** Note Time change ****
As a result of the new MIT parking regulations, we will be holding our
meetings later than usual. There should be plenty of metered parking
available. In Cambridge the meters are free after 8PM. See parking note
below. Future meetings may be moved to 8PM.

Updates on solar Linux projects including Ronan II


Kurt and Ed tells us the current status of several solar-powered Linux
projects that they've been working on.

Brian will discuss a project code-named "Ronan II", which uses a
Raspberry Pi as a single node of a DC-energized, water-cooled, solar
powered supercomputer.

For further information and directions please consult the BLU Web site
*** Parking Notice *** *** MIT just changed to new parking regulations ***
Parking at MIT without a Permit
MIT parking permits are required for all vehicles on MIT property.
Vehicles without MIT parking permits parked in any MIT parking area will
be subject to ticketing or towing. ​

After Hours
Anyone with a valid MIT parking permit can park his/her vehicle in any
parking facility on campus after 2:30 PM, Monday through Friday, and all
day on weekends and MIT holidays. Please note that parking is only
allowed in spots that are not otherwise reserved.

​Change here is that permits for any lot now valid in all lots after
2:30; previously permits were not required per website after 5 and in
reality after 3, but now no. Parking is at risk. Cambridge meters and
the pay lots and garages are the only safe options.

After the meeting we will adjourn to the official after meeting meeting
location at The Cambridge Brewing Company
