The FIRST round of Unigroup RSVPs will be for THIS special Solaris Kernel Engineers meeting. Please hold off on RSVPs for our SECOND Solaris 11.1 Release meeting, happening later in the month on our regular 3rd Thursday meeting day.

These RSVPs will go to building security at D.E. Shaw and Building Security at the front desk WILL REQUIRE your Photo ID.

Isaac Rozenfeld, Solaris Product Management, Oracle.

Isaac Rozenfeld has presented Solaris and OpenSolaris topics to Unigroup on various occasions.


For information about Oracle/Sun, visit http://www.oracle.com.


Addison-Wesley Professional/Prentice Hall PTR, and O'Reilly have been kind enough to provide us with review copies of some of their books, which we will continue to raffle off as giveaways at our meetings. The publishers always ask that the persons receiving the books provide a review and/or feedback about their books.

Unigroup would like to thank both companies for the support provided by their User Group programs.

As always, all of the books will be available for review at the start of the meeting.

We hope to have more copies of Oracle/Sun Solaris Install Media.

Also, SuSE has also provided us with SuSE Linux Install Media.


Unigroup is a Professional Technical Organization and User Group, and its members pay a yearly membership fee. For Unigroup members, there is usually no additional charges (ie. no meeting fees) during their membership year. Non-members who wish to attend Unigroup meetings are usually required to pay a "Single Meeting Fee".

         Yearly Membership (includes all meetings):      $ 50.00
         Student Yearly Membership (with current! ID):   $ 25.00
         Non-Member Single Meeting:                      $ 20.00
         Non-Member Student Single Meeting (with! ID):   $  5.00

       * Payment Methods: Cash, Check, American Express.

       ! Students: We are looking for proof that you are
         currently enrolled in classes (rather than working
         full-time), and as such, your Student ID should show
         a CURRENT date.  We have been presented Student IDs
         containing NO dates whatsoever, and in the
         current environment, perpetual/non-expiring access
         to university facilities just does not feel right.
         If your ID contains no date, please bring
         additional proof of current enrollment.  Thanks.

NOTE: Simply receiving Unigroup Email Announcements does NOT indicate membership in Unigroup.

Members: Remember to bring your membership card with you to the meeting, to confirm your yearly renewal date!


Complimentary Food and Refreshments will be served. This includes "wraps" such as turkey, roast beef, chicken, tuna and grilled vegetables as well as assorted salads (potato, tossed, pasta, etc), cookies, brownies, bottled water and assorted beverages.

Oracle sponsored the food service (Pizza) for the Joint Meeting with LOPSA-NYC. Thanks Oracle!
