Jonathan Franks wrote about this:

New York's Capital Region now has it's very own *BSD users group! Born Thursday, December 16, 2004, the groups aim is to provide a venue locally for users of the various BSD operating systems to meet and collaborate. The group is open to anyone, regardless of experience. The only requirement is a desire to join!

Special thanks to the NYC*BUG ( ) for their support. NYC*BUG has graciously offered to host our mailing list during these early days.

Information on initial meetings and more will soon be posted here. All are welcome to join, but of course the focus is on the New York Capital Region.

I look forward to meeting all of you.

    Anyone know how far of a drive this is from Montreal?

      Why don't you just start a group in Montreal? I'm game.

        I know a few users on Montreal's south shore that would join up.

          There are a good number of BSD developers and users in Montreal. NYC*BUG would be more than happy to setup a list for you also.

          Just shoot me an email.

          There's also a group in Ottawa with Dru Lavigne, Dan Langille, etc.

          Check out for other groups in your area, or to have your group listed. It's hosted by BC Hosting and maintained by Daemon News (me specifically).

          Montreal OpenBSD users hey?

          Well don't! Most of them play RPG games, some even wrote a few involving mechs. Oh and if you see that blondie one addicted to coffee, tell him he can shove his NeXT up to his elbow.

          Well isn't there one already there anyhoo?

          Your mate, Zob.

        I've never attended even a LUG, so I wouldn't even know where to start. I'd love to see one though and would help where I can...

    I'm in the NY Capital Region (over on the UAlbany uptown campus), and this leaves me wondering: why not a combined *BSD/Linux group? ;-) As someone who runs both OpenBSD and Linux on dedicated machines, and who has run several flavors of *BSD and Linux on servers and workstations, it strikes me that users/sysadmins of either *BSD or Linux have far more in common than not -- and far more to gain from a combined group than separate ones.

    Ah, well -- perhaps I'll end up creating a combined campus group at UAlbany, if I have the time. ^_^
