There will be a Gllug meeting taking place on the 15th of March, starting at
2pm, in the New Cavendish Street campus of Westminster University.

Google map for the location is at http://shorterlink.org/4059

We've got three speakers lined up:

Matthew King - A beginner's introduction to Asterisk. An explanation of SIP,
IAX, Zap, and how they work in an Asterisk dialplan. He will also be covering
common pitfalls in Asterisk installation.

Karanbir Singh - Automated systems provisioning with Cobbler and CentOS. A
brief intro to cobbler itself and then a live demo on setting up real machines
and Xen + VMware virtual machines.

Cobbler is a Linux boot server that allows for rapid setup of network
installation environments. With a simple series of commands, network installs
can be configured for PXE, reinstallations, and virtualized installs using Xen
or KVM. Cobbler uses a helper program called 'Koan' (which interacts with
Cobbler) for reinstallation and virtualization support.

John Hearns - Computing clusters.

There may be time at the end of the meeting for a couple of lightning talks.

As usual, the meeting will adjourn to a local pub.
