Sad news, via Garrett Fitzgerald’s Blog and Scoble. Jim is a very special guy, as his Microsoft Research page noted, an ACM, NAE, NAS, and AAAS Fellow and an ACM Turing Award winner. He was a skilled sailor and his loss a bit of mystery. My heart goes out to his family and friends.

Originally, we had scheduled this presentation for November, but Andy Bair was called away at the last minute for a family emergency. He’ll be back in Concord New Hampshire to reprise his presentation, which has gotten rave reviews from several other local LUGs.
The monthly meeting of CentraLUG, the Concord/Central New Hampshire GNHLUG chapter, happens the first Monday of (most) month on the New Hampshire Institute Campus starting at 7 PM. Directions and maps are available on the NHTI site. This month, we’ll be meeting in the Library/Learning Center/Bookstore, room 146, marked as “I” on that map. The main meeting starts at 7 PM, and we finish by 9 PM. Open to the public. Tell your friends.
For this meeting, Andy Bair will present “Digital Forensic File Carving Techniques.” Data carving techniques are used during digital forensic investigations and existing file carving tools typically produce many false positives. This briefing describes new tools and techniques used by the winning team of the the 2006 File Carving Challenge held at the 6th Annual Digital Forensic Research Workshop (DFRWS). The current briefing is also located.
Stay tuned for more information on future meetings: Bill Stearns will be presenting Logical Volume Management April 2nd and Seth Cohn will present Drupal on May 7th. More details on the group and directions to the meeting at http://www.centralug.org.
