The meeting was called to order by Victor. The small group discussed the election of officers. There was no clear consensus from the group on what to do to motivate members to come forth to fill the three positions that would make our LUG a more "official" organization. The club needs at least a President, Vice-President and Secretary/Treasurer.
After some discussion, Shay Walters graciously agreed to assume the responsibilities of ColaLUG President. Victor and Shay will work together to transition this role.
Another topic of discussion was the ColaLUG website, the domain management and hosting. Victor will provide Shay with information concerning this subject.
After the business portion, Shay gave an excellent presentation on FreeNAS, a FreeBSD-based server distribution that greatly simplifies the installation of a file server. The server software installs in about 90 seconds, and the configuration of all major portions took no more than ten minutes. This is an excellent option for someone that needs a quick and easy Network-Attached Storage device.
