About SBAY Pizzas

SBAY Pizza monthly meetings are where the various technical communities get together for technical discussion. It's all about electronic communications. Topics can range from Linux servers to emergency communications support to aerospace telemetry, and many other topics. Any of the special interest groups of SBAY (SVWUX, Stratofox, Linux Picnic, RadioExam, Direxant, SVPerl) can plan, discuss and promote events at this forum.

Bring your new and exciting gadgets to show. Let's talk tech.

Some recurring subjects evolve with current technical topics along the themes of electronic communications systems and Open Source software. We generally talk until the restaurant closes, and sometimes continue outside Topics can often include...

  • Any current news from projects and SIGs under the umbrella of sbay.org, or suggestions for new ones. SBAY Pizzas have started many new projects.
  • Any member's or participant's accomplishments or other cause for celebration, if it's related to SBAY or SIG activities
  • Internet server administrivia, protocols, security, and development
  • Wireless networking including but not limited to 802.11 WiFi
  • Ham Radio repeaters, transmitter hunting, and data communications (Transmitter hunting topics can include rockets and high-altitude balloons)
  • recent network provider blunders
  • Silicon Valley economic observations... what's up or down?
  • more... bring up your own subject
