[PLUG] Mark your calendar: iSCSI talk at PLUG West on Thursday

This month's PLUG West talk should be interesting: Jim Trocki will be 
presenting on iSCSI.  I'll send out the formal announcement to the 
plug-announce list on Monday.

Here's Jim's pitch for the presentation:

  This presentation is an introduction to the capabilities of iSCSI and    
  its Linux implementation. iSCSI can serve as an effective alternative    
  to Fiber Channel for storage networks by allowing hosts to communicate   
  with storage devices at a block level over common Ethernet equipment. It 
  provides high throughput, flexible configuration options, and can reduce 
  costs by leveraging several things: existing system and IP networking    
  infrastructure equipment, engineer skill bases, and the economies of     
 scale in the IP networking device industry.    

Jim has a long drive to get to and from the meeting, so I hope that
we'll have a good turn-out for this talk.  The presentation will start
at 7:00, rather than 8:00, to accommodate Jim's drive.
