User Meeting

     About 20 people showed for the user meeting which was good.

     It was fun meeting a couple of my co-workers from PNB/USWest/Qwest days.  They had changed so much I did not recognize them at first but then it has been 21 years since I left.

     Regarding a few projects in the works, I am working on getting ownCloud 9.1 working.  I had setup a server with the previous long term version of Ubuntu in order to get the older ownCloud, osTicket, and one customers website working again since the upgrade of our server broke these things but then a new ownCloud came out that did seem to work with PHP7 so I decided instead to try to get it operational.

     PHP7 is desirable to PHP5.6 because it speeds up execution by about 30%, that makes php based sites like WordPress sites, and many of the applications we have run faster.

     I want Eskimo to succeed and I know for us to succeed we have to help you succeed.  Any business website is heavily dependent upon Google searches for new traffic.  Google has gotten very good at finding sites with relevant content.  When it has a bunch to offer, and it almost always does, several things are very important after relevancy, and that is mobile friendliness, SSL encryption, and speed.  Sites that have all of these things get bumped to the top of the search results and that’s where you want to me and we can help you get there.

     Another service I am working on is providing streaming audio (and in theory video) via Icecast so that people interested in creating an Internet radio station or offering some streaming service, will have a way to do so.

     This mostly is an old interest of mine, Radio, being re-kindled in the era of modern technologies, a desire to understand how to current way of doing thing works from a technical and operational perspective, and as always a desire to give the average person a venue for getting their information, ideas, views, art, etc, out there.
