SF-LUG Resources, etc.

This is intended to track basic resources/information (most notably digital) of relevance to SF-LUG,
and most notably information that might not otherwise be particularly easy to find (especially publicly). It's not intended to (redundantly - and perhaps not currently/accurately) provide information that's otherwise generally readily (and generally publicly) accessible, e.g. whois(1) data, basic DNS data, etc.

The above doesn't include any prior (or subsequent) ownership(s) of domain(s) where the domain(s) were/are owned by other than SF-LUG person(s).
"transfer, etc. access" - has login access to make such changes with registrar

Who has access to edit SF-LUG's web page(s) (notwithstanding further below):
Jim Stockford
Michael Paoli
Grant Bowman
Todd Hawley
Kim Davalos

SF-LUG list:
graciously hosted by Rick Moen on (see:, also see same for listadmin(s))
Anything else on the site that might need attending to that listadmin(s) might not have access to change (e.g. other web pages related to SF-LUG):
Rick Moen is sysadmin on that site (Michael Paoli may also have sysadmin access if host is on-line, but Rick is principal and primary sysadmin)

Got Backups?
The list mbox file (full archive) is publicly accessible rsync:// - anyone with Internet access has access to back that up.
At present, Michael Paoli (also? Any others?) backs up the list mbox file to off-site, nominally overnightly.
Also, from that backup and processing thereof, there is also publicly available RCS version control version of that file:,v and backup copy of the file itself:
The (at least public) web pages - anyone with Internet access has access to back those up.
mbox roster (not publicly accessible) - Michael Paoli backs that up to off-site, nominally overnightly - I believe Jim Stockford is also emailed that data weekly.
SF-LUG web site/host (stuff not on the list host) - it is NOT an SF-LUG host, but does (also) host SF-LUG content,
that host gets full off-site backups/rotations nominally monthly, also gets a single (repeatedly overwritten) full backup each time the host (virtual machine) migrates (typically about 4 to 6 times per month).

SF-LUG nominally owns a (loud, power hungry, relatively old) 1U server physical machine - not particularly suitable for residential operation (especially with non-deaf humans nearby). It is in possession of Michael Paoli in - egad - residential location. It mostly serves as physical host of VM that (also) hosts SF-LUG non-list content … but (noise!, power, …) that's mostly left powered off and generally only powered up when the primary physical machine isn't/won't be available at that location (and the human(s) aren't around or are soon hoping to evacuate that location).
