On that note, we use openfiler extensively so maybe a freenas / openfiler theme would be an idea.

Hey Eric,

As you and I've discussed over the past few months, my friend Marvin and I
have been wading into embedded Linux with the BeagleBoard from Texas
Instruments.

I think we could setup a demonstration of the board with some presentation
of
the hardware capabilities and our experience in getting some different
flavors of
Linux running on it - Ubuntu, Android, Angstrom...  We've also got some Atom
based
PC's that folks may want to see, although there not quite as unique with
most netbooks
using them - it's still interesting to see how they run.

One other topic, along the lines of FreeBSD discussion - FreeNAS.  It's a
pretty easy to
setup NAS package.  I just setup a system at home for storing media and
music to stream
to different network devices. I'd be glad to discuss my setup and experience
if there's any
interest. http://freenas.org/

Thanks,
Steve
