January 20th CACTUS Meeting


December Meeting Report

by Darrell Long

Eight members and five officers were present.  The main presentation, given by John Ratliff from Sun,was on going from garage.com to prodution.com (and hopefully to gorrilla.com).  John Ratliff sugested that dot.com's should be using Sun computers, for scalability and upward plugability of lower end processor into higher end processors, by the time they pass strartup.com.  Another feature talked about was the '2+1' power supply with dual power cords for when your system absolutely has to stay up.

We voted to add, to election night, a referendum vote on whether to switch from MR. Gatti's pizza to Poppa Johns.

CACTUS Meeting Location: Applied Research Labs

CACTUS meets on the third Thursday of each month at the Applied Research Labs (ARL) in the JJ Jake Pickle Research Campus (JJ PRC). We'll meet in the main auditorium located directly behind the guard's desk and main lobby.

Please do not show up earlier than 6:20 pm on the specified day. Enter through the main entrance at 10000 Burnet Road for ARL:UT. Tell the guard that you are here for the CACTUS meeting. You will be required to sign a log book, but not required to wear a badge. The guards will direct you to the auditorium entrance. Limited parking in the front of the building is available, but more extensive parking is available in the large parking lot just north of the ARL building. After 6:30 pm, all entrances to JJ PRC, except for the Burnet Road entrance, are closed and locked. You can still enter the parking lot in front of the ARL building. No parking tags are necessary after 6:00 pm. See map for further details.

Online maps are available at:

As always, please leave the facility as you saw it when you arrived. So let's clean up all pizza and soda items before we leave. Thanks and hope to see all of you there.
