Speaker Bio

Ski Kacoroski has been a System Admin for 21 years and is a Charter member
of LOPSA.  He currently manages a mixture of Sun, Mac, and Linux machines
at the Northshore School District while trying with mixed success to
implement common file services, directory system(s), and configuration
management.  When not working at Northshore, Ski advises customers on
technology issues as the owner of CCK Technology and visits National
Parks in his 1986 Vixen motorhome with his wife, two daughters, 2 cats,
and dog.

Atom Powers is the Lead Systems Administrator at DigiPen Institute of 
Technology where he manages about thirty-five FreeBSD and Linux servers. 
Atom has been working with computers since the early '90s, and has 
officially supported every version of MS Windows and MS-DOS since 2.2. 
Recently he has been working on ways to manage close to a thousand MS 
Windows workstations without any MS Windows servers. Atom lives in Renton, 
married, no kids, three cats.

This is FREE and open to the public and a wonderful opportunity.

The Seattle Area System Administrator's Guild (SASAG) is a local group
for system & network administrators in Greater Seattle Area.  We are a
local chapter of both SAGE and LOPSA, but membership in either is not a
requirement.  We sponsor a regular monthly meeting open to the public on
the second Thursday if each month at 7 p.m.
