    Hi Everyone,

    I?d like to invite everyone in the Vancouver area or those visiting, to join us on May 22nd (Wednesday) for the Vancouver Sysadmin meeting.

    This month?s topics are ?Drowning in data; drowning in waste? and ?Cooling 101?



    Drowning in data; drowning in waste:The growth of the world's data is phenomenal and well-documented. ?Much is made of big data, of our modern digital life, and of our propensity to capture information about the world around us. ?Less is said about the waste that accompanies our packrat data storage activities, and the where that waste comes from. ?Peter Godman explores sources of waste, both mundane and exotic, in how we apply money and effort to data storage..


    Cooling 101: David will be presenting ?Cooling for IT Spaces?. ?This presentation will include discussion on the basics of cooling, precision versus comfort, provide an overview of the cooling technologies (air cooled, water cooled, chilled water, glycol cooled and free cooling) and when to apply them and will conclude the presentation with a discussion on cooling designs for both low density (4kW per rack) and high density (30kW per rack) applications. A demonstration of different equipment will be part of this presentation.

    Biographies:

    Peter Godman, CEO, Qumulo

    Peter Godman brings 20 years of industry systems experience to Qumulo. As VP of Engineering and CEO of Corensic, Peter brought the world's first thin-hypervisor based product to market. As Director of Software Engineering at Isilon, he led development of several major releases of Isilon's award-winning OneFS distributed filesystem and was inventor of 18 patented technologies. Peter studied math and computer science at MIT.

    David Toralez

    David is an Environmental Regional Manager for Emerson Network Power and is based out of California. ?He has had over 20 years of industry experience in computer room cooling applications and designs and has been part of the Emerson Network Power team for 10 years.


    Details for the meeting:

    Location: Centre for Digital Media, 685 Great Northern Way ? The new building beside 577

    Date and time: Wed May 22, 2013, from 6 PM to 8ish PM.

    Refreshments: Yes, we?re providing pizza and beer and we?ll figure out something for the few of you who are vegans. We will be going to the Tap and Barrel in Olympic Village after the meeting.

    Very important: Parking: You will be given a parking pass when you arrive.

    A rough agenda:

    5:30PM: People can mingle in the lounge

    6:00: Welcome and quick introductions

    6:10: Presentation by Peter Godman

    7:10: Presentation by David Toralez

    8:00 After the presentation we?ll have an open group discussion. Bring your questions, and hopefully others will have answers.

    8:30 PM: Go to the Pub for a beer.

    Please let me know if you?re able to attend. Either by an email rsvp to me or an online rsvp via the Studiosysadmin website.


    Cheers,

    Scott

    Really looking forward to this.  Instead of paying $375ish a year to upgrade Production Premium seats, we get to pay $840 a year for CC team.

    How quickly can we sign up?

    Looking at installing maintenance release for FileMaker Server 11 (on Windows). How hard could it be?

    Well, according to?http://www.filemaker.com/nl/downloads/fms11_getting_started_en.pdf it is a 9 step process, which includes some choices gems such as:

    "Note your existing FileMaker Server settings"
    (and no, there isn't really a detailed explanation of what settings you should actually be "noting")

    "Make a copy of any database files, shell script files, and plug-ins you used with FileMaker Server"
    (really? I have to make a copy of the databases to install a maintenance release?)

    So I guess that installation will stay at its current level forever...

  • 05/07/13--12:10: VDI adoption in CG
  • By Brian Krusic - Hi,


    Any one using this successfully?

    I've set up a rather beefy Windows 7 box with multiple rdesktop session capability.  Some apps like ZBrush will not run on the same box with multiple instances.

    But this is a sort of poor mans VDI.

    Any one doing the real thing?

    I've sort of given up on remote centrally mounted Windows apps.  I think some one from Tippet was researching remote Windows apps, any progress?

  • 05/07/13--20:25: nVidia K5000 at 4k on Mac
  • By Anonymous - Hi, We're having a bit of trouble getting our new K5000 (for Mac) to work on said Mac at the stated resolution of 4k. I'm not sure if it's a cable problem (damn thing has full size DisplayPort, and projector has HDMI, dealing with DP1.2 and HDMI1.4a interoperability?), or that the resolution is not supported on the Mac (as is the case on the Radeon 7950 (for Mac!)), or who knows. Does anyone have any contacts at nVidia, someone who might know, or at least know how to get to somebody pretty technical within the organization? I've never really dealt with nVidia before, emailing the support address has been pretty uneventful! :-( Thanks! -- Antoine To unsubscribe from the list send a blank e-mail to mailto:studiosysadmins-discuss-request@studiosysadmins.com?subject=unsubscribe

    Hi,

     

    I’m looking for a Windows font management solution to :

    -          Enable users without admin rights to install fonts on their PC.

    -          Enable users to manage fonts by projects.

    -          Enable the farm to access user installed fonts.

     

    So far, I’ve found http://www.fontexplorerx.com/server/

    I haven’t tried it yet but it looks like it should do the job, except that it seems a tad expensive to me.

    Does anyone recommend anything else ?

     

    Cheers,

    F.

  • 05/08/13--07:25: Font Utils
  • By Robert Moggach - As an aside to the font management thread, here's a few python scripts I wrote for font things...


    Both use the fontforge python library and certainly violate font licenses given you need one license per workstation.
    (and use at your own risk obviously)

    - mac python script that converts hierarchies of fonts to OTF format (no resource fork!)
    - I have a single NFS/CIFS/AFP share for all my fonts and they work across platforms


    - modifies font family of fonts for better sorting in GUIs

    I wrote these in my early python days so debug/optimize accordingly.

    We used Font Explorer X Server on Macs -- liked it very much, and it's my understanding they have a Windows client now, too.

    The pricing isn't cheap, but it's a solid product, does its job well.

    The only question I'd have is how to integrate with your farm -- last time I used it, there was no way to remotely/automatically tell the machines to load fonts x-y-z.. had to be done at each individual client.  We used our farm's own font-sync feature for fonts.  A shared folder that would be automatically copied to the nodes & activated at the start of a render job.  That worked pretty well.
