Texas Linux Fest 2011

If you're anywhere around the Austin area on April 2, 2011, I hope you'll join us at the Hilton in downtown Austin for the 2nd annual Texas Linux Fest!  Last year's conference was a resounding success with a tremendous turnout.

I'll be there again this year, where I'm giving a fun and exciting presentation and real-time demo.  Here's the abstract.  Hope to see you there!

Byobu -- a Damn Fine Command Line!

Beginners, novices, and expert Linux users -- if you spend any
appreciable amount of time working in a command line environment,
consider learning Byobu, the text window manager based on GNU Screen.
Establish a single shell session (in a terminal, through SSH, or in a
tty), launch Byobu, create multiple windows, navigate back and forth
between those windows, detach from the session while your programs are
still running, re-attach to the same session later, split your screen
vertically and/or horizontally, monitor the status of 30+ indicators
in real time at the bottom of your screen, and write your own custom
indicators.  These are the basic features of Byobu!  Attend this
tutorial-style session and you'll get started with these introductory
features and quickly move into more advanced configuration and usage
of your damn fine command line.
