Filed at 8:30 pm under by TxSparky

ALE NW Weekly Linux sessions are moving in January 2018 to Schlotzsky’s near Windy Hill and Powers Ferry.  Specifically, 3000 Windy Hill Rd., Ste.A-10,  Marietta, GA 30067. Same day and time, Sundays from 3pm-6pm.

The next ALE NW meeting will be January 7th 2018.  The Schlotzsky’s manager has graciously agreed to provide per-arranged table setup, good wifi, plenty of power and food discounts. I’m excited about our new venue and a new host that welcomes our business.

I hope you will join us in the New Year at our New Meetup location with New menu choices and New insights into Linux. Schlotzsky’s on Windy Hill, Sundays 3pm-6pm.

The ALE Meetup site has the new location information at https://www.meetup.com/ALE-Atlanta-Linux-Enthusiasts/events/

ale server status

Filed at 5:31 pm under by jkinney

It seems the IP address block I got from Comcast has been a problem one that is listed in spamhous.

So…..

if your not getting ALE mail it’s because the ALE mail server is being blacklisted by IP address. I’ve put in the request that this is a clean machine but that will take time to rattle through the interwebs,

*$^!#)* spammers!

ALE (mostly) Back UP

Filed at 3:56 pm under by jkinney

The migration is mostly working. The mailman list server is still being a monster, though.

The mail ALE list is up. The ale-jobs and ale-study are still being tested.

I have a prior engagement out of town and have to stop swearing at mailman now.

Really now. Missed the ride. Gotta go drive somewhere.

ALE mailing list bounce issues

Filed at 7:26 am under by Robert

The ALE mailing list software is currently experiencing a problem delivering messages to multiple people, which has resulted in it blocking multiple subscribers for excessive bounces to their email accounts. The problem’s currently being investigated. If you’ve noticed that you haven’t received any email from the ALE list recently but are still interested in receiving mail from the list, please log in to the list subscription settings page at http://mail.ale.org/mailman/options/ale (yes, it’s HTTP and not HTTPS, and the password you use for the ALE mailing list should definitely NOT be similar to any other passwords you use anywhere else; Mailman stores them all in plain text so that it can send it back to you if you forget, and by default sends a monthly reminder email of your password) and confirm that the “Mail Delivery” option is set to “Enabled”. Thank you!

JD: This has mainly been seen with gmail, but other large email providers may also be impacted. If you aren’t on gmail and see this issue, please let one of the group organizers know.
