The linux.conf.au organisers have given all miniconfs an additional few weeks to spruik for more proposal submissions, huzzah!
So if you didn’t submit a proposal because you weren’t sure whether you’d be able to attend LCA2010, you now have until October 23 to convince your boss to send you and get your proposal in.
Since you were going to linux.conf.au 2010 in Wellington, NZ anyway in January of next year, you should submit a proposal to speak at the data storage and retrieval miniconf.
If you have something to say about storage hardware, file systems, raid, lvm, databases or anything else linux or open source and storage related, please submit early and submit often!
The call for proposals is open until September 28.
Ronald Bradford last week posted about memcached not being multi-threaded on Ubuntu, something he discovered via some small utilities that are bundled with libmemcached, written by Brian Aker.
When I noticed there were no Ubuntu packages for libmemcached (or the CLI tools) I decided to create some.
For your enjoyment: http://ubuntu.cafuego.net/dists/jaunty-cafuego/memcached/ (Source debs are included)
The repository also contains a memcached that has been re-compiled with multithreading enabled.
