OT: Anyone local to Chattanooga with 4 BTC to sell for cash

From: mdquerng 
Hi all

Short story: I have a customer that was hit two days ago with a new variant
of the Locky crypto ransomware called Zepto. Unfortunately this customer has
been more than a little lax with respect to their backup strategies and they
have a large number of business critical files on two servers that appear to
be unrecoverable.

The customer is to the point where they are willing to take the chance and
try and pay the ransom. The issue is that they have never used Bitcoin and
have no real way to get their hands on the 4 BTC needed in a timely manner
due to restrictions on the amount that can be purchased via the various
Bitcoin exchanges and how long it will take to receive the purchased

I'm reaching out to the group to see if there is someone local to
Chattanooga that already has 4 BTC available and might be interested in
transferring them to the customer's Bitcoin wallet, if the customer were to
meet them and give them cash likely plus a bit for your trouble. If this is
you, please contact me off list via this email address.

Free Software Photo Galleries

From: "Robert A. Kelly III" 
Hash: SHA512

I wondered if anyone is familiar with a free software photo gallery
that offers facial recognition and tagging similar to most online
services (either natively or via a plugin)? To be clear, I'm talking
about server software to make a photo gallery available over the web.

I'm also curious if you know of any good photo galleries that offer
the option of storing your photos as files on the file system, instead
of in a database.
