McDell Hackintosh>>> Quad Core/16gb/500GB SSD $617

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
So I have successfully Hackintoshed a dell Optiplex 780 Desktop (between mini tower and SFF in size 16x16x5). It is VERY fast and silent. I must say I am impressed. Here is the build:

Optiplex 780
Intel Q9650 Core2 Quad 3.0ghz (Will replace with Xeon Quad when it arrives)
16GB 1333mhz ram
500 GB Crucial M100 SSD
1TB Western Digital Blue (Time Machine internal drive)
Nvidia GeForce GT730 1GB DDR5 low profile. Triple monitor support ;-)

So a Quad core 3 ghz with 16gb ram and 1tb Time machine drive that performs like a MacPro (older one of course) for $617 ALL IN.

I can’t say I will never buy another Mac… But I might not buy another Mac Desktop.

The ONLY thing I do not have working yet is the APP Store, and Messages.

Tech Recruiters

From: DaWorm 
------------------------------------------------------
Anyone on the list have any recommendations on good tech recruiters,
especially for more engineering oriented positions, as opposed to IT
positions?

I'm looking to hire someone similar to myself, who can do both hardware
design as well as embedded software design, and most of the recruiting
services I've used so far are either oriented to much higher end people
than I'm looking for, or are contract only recruiters, where I'm looking a
hiring someone full time.

Any recommendations appreciated.

Oh, and if anyone is interested in this type of position, or knows someone
who is, let me know and I'll pass along the job description.

Thanks,
  Jeff.

A cool CHEAP Hardware hack!!!

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
I am building a couple of cheap quad core hackintoshes using stock Dell =
Boxen and upgrading video cards.

I was shopping for Core2 Quad processors (Q9650) and was shocked to see =
them at $100 and more! Awful damned old for that price.

Soooo I was googling around and found this: =
http://www.overclock.net/t/1431723/mod-lga775-support-for-lga771-xeon-cpus=
 =


So an EASY way to use LGA 771 XEON CPU=E2=80=99s in Core2 Duo/Quad =
motherboards. More cache, better overclocking, and lower temps=E2=80=A6 =
OH YEAH and HALF the PRICE!=20

The Quad core Xeon comparable to the Q9650 core2 quad is $46 instead of =
$100!!!

Score!

New Bipartisan H1B bill could kill American Tech Jobs!

From: Rod-Lists 
------------------------------------------------------
New legislation being pushed by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) to hike the H-1B visa cap is drawing criticism and warnings that it will lead to an increase in offshoring of tech jobs.

IEEE-USA said the legislation, introduced by a bipartisan group of lawmakers on Tuesday, will "help destroy" the U.S. tech workforce with guest workers.

Other critics, including Ron Hira, a professor of public policy at Howard University and a leading researcher on the issue, said the bill gives the tech industry "a huge increase in the supply of lower-cost foreign guest workers so they can undercut and replace American workers."

Hira said this bill "will result in an exponential rise of American jobs being shipped overseas."

Nonprofit needs a desktop

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
I'm not going to be at the swap meet on Sunday, but if anyone wants the old
32-bit half-rack rackable system I bought off Aaron a few years ago (comes
with 2 drives), then hit me up. I'd take some dumb switches and/or 1-2
older managed switches for it....

I have a client that needs a PC for light-weight use (email, building a
resume, and searching for jobs).

The plan is to put Ubuntu on it. It'll be at a shelter for the residents to
use, and we'll even be configuring it so they can't go to any social media
websites, etc...

The old PC is running XP, is laden with viruses, and has 512mb of RAM. I
told the client it wasn't even worth me fixing that one, and that I'd see
what I could do about finding them a replacement machine.

Anyone willing to donate anything?

Ubiquity EdgeMax (ASG)

From: Mark Quering 
------------------------------------------------------
Hey all


I recently sold one of these units to a customer basically to give it a
try. Needless to say at the $100 price point I was pretty happy with the
device.

The unit has a pretty solid build quality. The web management interface is
a little rough out of the box. A firmware update helped quite a bit. I
haven't played in the CLI yet but I hear that EdgeOS is a fork of Vayatta.

The web interface worked well for a basic SOHO NAT setup with a few inbound
firewall rules. Been very stable for the two months it's been in a
production environment. I also did not get to fully test LAN to WAN
throughput of their network processor due to time constraints.

The only odd thing I noticed with the unit I deployed was that it generated
a fair bit of heat. More than I would expect. I also did not need to
contact support so I cannot speak to that aspect of the product. I would
say for the price it's definitely worth purchasing to play with.

Due to my experience with this product and good things I've heard here and
on other forums, I am seriously considering also offering their managed PoE
switches and AP's to my SMB offerings.

Library 4th Floor hiring a part timer

From: Nate Hill 
------------------------------------------------------
Lookit!

http://chattlibrary.org/jobs/library-assistant-2-part-time-0

The Chattanooga Public Library is looking for special people with that rare
combination of superb customer service skills and electronic wizardry to
help us transform the library.

As one of our "Smart People," you will be an expert who troubleshoots
gadgets and answers questions to help our customers make full use of our
resources.  Your problem-solving and people skills will ensure swift
resolution to technical problems.  You also educate team members about
products, while independently keeping your own technical know-how up to
date.

You will begin your work on the Library's 4th Floor, our public makerspace,
civic laboratory, and GigLab, but your services may be needed in other
library departments as well.  While your primary responsibility will be
providing excellent customer service to 4th Floor visitors, you are also
expected to engage, contribute, and participate in the development of new
ideas and new services.  You will assist the public with tools you may not
be familiar with yet, including but not limited to 3D printers, vinyl
cutters, and more, so curiosity and an interest in experimentation is
essential.

You will provide insightful advice and friendly, hands-on support to our
customers in need.  Difficult situations are no problem, as you explain
situations with patience and empathy.  You offer solutions quickly to help
our customers use their devices and our resources.  Juggling customer
needs, you keep aware of their time demands as well as your own.  You
fulfill our service commitment with speed, skill and grace.

Qualifications:

   - Strong people skills, with a knack for problem-solving
   - Ability to maintain composure and customer focus while troubleshooting
   and solving technical issues
   - Ability to juggle appointments for assistance with unceasing demands
   for your time
   - Both an eagerness and an aptitude for acquiring skills in technical
   areas
   - Ability to make decisions quickly
   - Ability to work a flexible schedule - work hours will be based on
   library needs



This is a part-time position, twenty (20) hours per week (including weekend
hours) and is based at the downtown library.  Be advised, however, that you
may be scheduled to work at any library location. The pay is $15.00 per
hour, with no benefits.  All library employees must be Tennessee
residents.  For further information, contact Jim Cooper at
cooper

IT folks at Coyoto laid off

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
I've heard through the grape vine that a number of folks working in IT for
Coyote Logistics (who were originally working for / with Access America
Transport and were caught up in the merger) have been fired.

Not only were they all originally promised "their jobs stay here" in
Chattanooga and that they wouldn't be fired after the merger, but
apparently at least 1 of them is expecting a new kid next month.

I know of at least 1 person who is on Chugalug - I don't think anyone else
is.

That said, I'm emailing to see if you guys know of anyone hiring.

There's some folks with engineering / infrastructure backgrounds as well as
folks with Customer Service / Tier 1 tech support backgrounds that are
needing a job right about now.

ArchLinux vs Ubuntu

From: Dan Lyke 
------------------------------------------------------
I have an old netbook with a new SSD. Yesterday I put Xubuntu on it,
but I'm wondering about things that do a better job of keeping Gnome
off my system, or otherwise being lighter weight than Xubuntu.

My one requirement is that I'd like to run Mixxx (which Arch supports)
or something similar (ie: music playing with easy tempo shifting,
queuing, and a few set points) on this machine. I'm noticing that a
couple of the cool kids these days are running ArchLinux, mostly on
semi-embedded systems.

Anyone got thoughts on this matter?

The trouble with the USPTO

From: Eric Wolf 
------------------------------------------------------
I just got an email from IEEE about a career fair at the USPTO office in
Denver. They specifically are in need of electrical, computer and
mechanical engineers. Seeing the claim of "USPTO was ranked the #1 Best
Place to Work in the Federal Government(R)", I checked the listing on
USAJOBS:

https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/380517100

Entry level will be a GS-7, which means a starting salary below $50K. If I
could get best the education requirements (I know the USGS counted the
number of course hours I had in each subject and used that as a hard gate
for applicants), I'd probably get to start back at my old rank of GS-9 Step
3 with a salary of $56K. Or a little less than half what I make now...

USPTO needs to pay patent examiners competitive salaries or we are going to
continue dealing with Patent Trolls with portfolios of crap patents...

OT: LG G2 update

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
So for anybody interested in a top of the line android phone (Quad core 2.2ghz, 2gb ram 32gb storage 5.2" screen, built in wireless charging) for under $250 here is the update.

The battery life is FANTASTIC! The rest of the phone is as well. This is as happy as I have been on Android. I spent $225 on ebay for a verizon unit because it is the only one with built in wireless charging and is FACTORY UNLOCKED for SIM cards.

So a phone that is better in many ways than a Galaxy S5 for almost a third of the price? WHAT are you waiting for???

Here is a bit about battery life:

I've talked to GTRI (the people who put on the Hungry Hungry Hackers
CTF) and it looks like a go. I will have more info in the next week or
so.

H3 was this last weekend, it went great (8/22 & 8/23)
http://www.hungryhungryhackers.org/

We noticed at past events that people would leave the CTF after only a
few hours. We asked around and found that people want to compete but
are overwhelmed and don't know where to start.

This year we had two tracks, competition and educational. The
educational track had multiple speakers that did walk-throughs of
tools and how to solve some basic challenges. It went very well and
after the end of the educational track a bunch of them joined the
competition.

The CTF is Jeopardy style with about 60 challenges. In addition we had
ten stations setup with a FPGA hardware flags and a car hacking
station setup with CAN buss flags.

Craig Smith of TheiaLabs set up the car hacking station and was on
hand for the entire event. It was a combination CAN buss/WiFi hack.
Craid was alos handing out copies of the Car hacker's Handbook. You
can download the PDF here:

http://opengarages.org/handbook/

A lock picking challenge was also part of the CTF.

Once we do our post CTF debrief we'll start solidifying the PhreakNIC CTF.

Let me know of anything you would like to see in the CTF.
