      Happy and healthy New Year to you all!

      Looking forward to seeing you all at our next meeting, Sat Jan 8
      from 10am-2pm.

      The presentation will give an overview of tape backup technologies,
      products, and strategies, with a special emphasis on VXA technology
      and its advantages for Linux users.

      There will be a nice luncheon as well as a give away of a Ecrix VXA-1
      tape drive.

      You can find out more about this exciting backup
      technology at their web site -> http://www.ecrix.com/

      More info and directions to meeting over at http:/www.linuxatlax.org

      Here is a bio on Dr. Saab who will be presenting.

      "Frank Saab is the Internet Business Manager for Ecrix,. He has been
      with
      the company since June of 1998. He is responsible for Ecrix's websites,
      e-commerce, and Web marketing initiatives. Before joining Ecrix he had
      nearly fifteen years of engineering and technology management experience
      with organizations such as the Avery-Dennison Research Center, in
      Pasadana, CA and the Colorado Venture Centers, in Lakewood, CO.

      While Frank is a relative newcomer to the tape storage world, he is an
      old
      hand at open systems and high-performance computing. In 1987, while at
      Avery, he orchestrated the transition from DEC VAX to multi-vendor
      Unix for the company's Engineering Computation Network, and he led the
      development of client/server applications for engineering computation
      and
      visualization.

      Frank had his introduction to Linux in 1996, while working as Web
      Marketing Manager for Visual Numerics Inc.(VNI) in Boulder, CO. His Web
      development team used Linux on Macintosh PowerPC computers as a
      development and staging platform for the company's websites, hosted on
      Solaris. He has been a Linux fan ever since.

      Frank holds a PhD from the University of Wisconsin and a BS from the
      University of Utah."


      Looking forward to seeing you all. Good luck on the draw for the free
      tape drive !

      regards,
