    Meetup 2017 Registration


    Meetup 2017 Registration - $20 This fee guarantees you a spot at Meetup 17 as well as breakfast and lunch. You may have heard the story but one year I didn't charge a small fee and a ton of people showed up for the free food and a ton of others cancelled! So I had way too much leftover BBQ! This is a PayPal transaction. If you would like something different please PM me.  Use this link - PayPal $20


    Also, if you are a Patron, https://patreon.com/davidmccabe, at the $5 or higher level, you have a ticket to Meetup 17. You do need to RSVP though. Please use a PM here, email, Patreon PM, etc. Patrons are also invited to a RESET HQ Tour on Friday night. Come on all, sign up as Patrons!!! I purchase food based on your RSVP's and PayPal reservations! Sometimes folks can't make it after reserving, that is fine. The earlier you can reserve your spot the better!


    Also, use this thread to secure transportation with each other. If you are flying in, let us know your details and maybe you can hitch a ride with someone. If you want to carpool, drop your location here and maybe someone else close to you can share a ride and some gas. You never know!


    I'm currently speaking with area hotels. I'm trying to secure a group rate at the closest, Hyatt Place. There are several events happening this weekend and they seem to be fairly booked but I'll let you know for sure. Lastly, RESET stickers for all! That's why you're coming right? ;)


    If you are new to Meetup I can tell you it is a great time. We have equipment demos and a lot of folks bring their servers, media gear, etc. There is always something new and ALWAYS something to talk about. Remember Meetup 16? I dropped a bombshell on everyone and published the final episode of HSS Podcast and launched RESET Podcast. All in about 30 minutes! I was super emotional during that and it was totally unplanned! Did anyone film that? You never know what surprises I have in store for you!


    Most folks try to arrive Friday prior to Meetup. We try to meet at the local Fry's and then go out to eat. Saturday is Meetup and then we converge on the Microsoft Store right after. Usually, 6 PM. Saturday night we try to go out to the local Irish Pub for some fish and chips and then disperse. Sunday morning a group of use meet at a, not so local, Waffle House for some breakfast. (love this part!)

    My area is exploding in growth so you might want to bring your family to shop and explore the area. They are also invited to have lunch at Meetup. If you want to do that let me know and I can arrange that with you. I've found that most spouses don't want to stick around as the geekery tends to get very thick and unbearable for them. Ha ha ha!

    • This is a fantastic deal.  $249 for the Moto X4 on Project Fi. I pay $20 a month for unlimited phone calls and texts plus $10 a month per Gigabyte of data used.  My Bill is usually at that $30 mark plus fees.  If you use more data you pay for it.  If you use over 60Gb you pay up to 60 Gb and then the rest is free up to 15Gb, then you get a little throttle back on speed.  It's a great service that I can't recommend enough.
      Sign up now and get a $20 credit.
      You can also get it on 24 months No Interest via Google.  Pay $10 a month or pay it off anytime during that 2 years.  Once you are on Fi you can get new phones at zero interest.  Order through the app and never go into the Verizon or ATT store again.
      My favorite part?  International service.  Same data fees as home with no surcharge.  Oh, and free data SIMs.  You can order a free data SIM, meaning, if you have a second device that you want to use as data you can get a SIM with no monthly fee.  It uses your same data pool.  Tablet, second phone, laptop, etc.

      Sign up and get $20 credit too.  I'll get a credit as well.  https://g.co/fi/r/9WX36D

    • Hey all,
      I've got a goodie bag full of stuff that I want to give away to a Patreon subscriber.  At the end of the give away period I'll put all the names in a hat and draw one.  Not a Patreon Supporter?  It is so easy.  Go here - http://patreon.com/davidmccabe  Sign up for any level.  I may....weight the higher subs a little more.  Maybe put them in twice or something. $5 and up club.  I do have some more give away items coming up too.  Bigger things!
      Here is the lot so far.  Probably some RESET stickers too!  What is this stuff?  PopSocket for a phone, Acronis Webcam cover, slider thingy, D-Link Luggage Tag, a pen from someone, Autel Robotics, "Remove before Flight" zipper pull.  I have one on my backpack.  CES stuff!
      Rules.  Subscribe on Patreon.  You gotta stay at least a month! BTW, I use Patreon to pay hosting fees, backups, software licenses, etc.  It helps tremendously!
      Go here - http://patreon.com/davidmccabe  Sign up for any level.  I will probably draw this out on February 9th, 2018.

    • Trying to help a local small business setup firewall/router in two locations with VPN site to site. 
      They have a very limited budget, under $250 per site.
      I was looking at:
      Cisco RV320
      Ubiquiti Enterprise Gateway Router
      Anyone worked with either/both of these?
      Other recomendations?

    • I've been putting this together (on paper) for over a week.  This build has several goals.
      1. Budget Build. Let's not break the bank.
      2. Leverage parts from your stash as a server builder.
      3. Mine as many different things as possible at once without impacting each other
      4. Have it all fit in a case. No open air frames or rigs.

    • I've been a big fan of this product and have it running in my home.  It's now $20 off if you follow this link.

      There is an Amazon link to buy it and December 17th to 22nd it will also be $20 off on the Circle website.  So heads up!
      Take a look at the video below for a better understanding of what it can do for you.  In my house, if anything hops on my wifi the box will notify me immediately.  I've set it up so anything that jumps on is put in a KID friendly profile.  I look at what they are seeing on their iPads and can turn off apps. YouTube, Safari, App Store = Off.
