The catch is you have to write a review to get the tee shirt.

Anyway, a couple of intersting urls, firstly it seems that Shang Shin is doing one of his courses for Sun Identity Manager:
I have done the J2EE course he offers and found it both effective and flexible (I could work it around all the other demands on my time.)
The other one is that:
is offering free domain names (in exchange for inserting a small add banner at the top of your web page.) My children were very happy to be able to get their own domain names (as their father is way too stingy to buy them one.)

This is the same government who wants to relax the media ownership laws so that just a few people will be able to own all our television and media without any good reason to do so (other than a few media barons wanting this.)
Apparently free speech isn't an Australian value anymore :-<.

Date: Monday, October 17 Time: 6:30pm Location: iForce Centre. Ground floor 33 Berry St, North Sydney Speakers -------- Bryan Cantrill - Bryan is in Australia this week to (amongst other things) present a tutorial and plenary at AUUG and do some customer visits. He will also present at SOSUG. Bryan is a senior staff engineer with the Solaris Kernel group and was recently recognised as one of the top innovators under 35 years of age. James McPherson - James recently gave a customer presentation on ZFS and has agreed to give the presentation to this group. I've not seen the presentation, but from all accounts it went very well when he first gave it. James has been "playing" with ZFS for quite some time, particularly with a focus on usability and folks simply doing silly things with it to see how it holds up. James currently works in the Leadville driver group.Be there or be square as they :-]

Peter Lees did a rundown on what OpenSolaris is (and is not)
Brendan Gregg did a good talk around how Dtrace replaces all traditional performance tuing tools by running a nasty script on his laptop and then using both the old tools and dtrace to troubleshoot the problem to show the pros and cons. He also did a brief introduction to the Dtrace tools repository. (which can be found at Bigadmin
Alan Hargreaves then followed up with a look at how static probes work in Dtrace and then as a Surprise showed off Looking Glass running under Solaris x86! (using the pre prelease Nvidia driver of course.) I don't think I want to know how he got Java3d to run on his laptop.
A raffle was held to give away a copy of the Cluster blueprints book and the Solaris10 media kits were handed out (plus pizza and beer to finish off.) I'm certainly glad I went along and it was good to chat to people outside of Sun who are interested in Solaris.
