Hi again

I've scheduled Avery's presentation[1] for Saturday April 9 at 2:30pm in my
livingroom, a stone's throw from Grace Cathedral in SF.  Those who RSVP
will get the precise address and directions.  It's a mile from Embarcadero
staiton (BART/SF Muni rail), and one can take the very frequent 1-California
electric bus to the top of the hill.  There's also a cable car option
if you want
the $5 tourist experience (the California line is out of service but
the Powell.
It's 1.9 miles from Caltrain, and one can take the very frequent KT trolley to
Embarcadero Station, and as above.

If you can come at that time, please RSVP tony at godshall.org with
subject "bup SF"

Please feel free to pass the details above to anyone you think might
be interested.

Best Regards

> Bup "it backs things up" does efficient sub-file deduplication and
> compression suitable for disk-to-disk or disk-to-remote-host backups.
> It's based git and python and the rolling-checksum concept that makes
> rsync transfers so efficient.
> Bup has no user-friendly graphical UI yet- this will be more about the
> technology and the commandline interface.
> Avery wrote his Ph.D. thesis on this idea- it's sure to be
> interesting, especially if you are familiar with git and hashes and
> data compression algorithms.
> Avery will be in town in about a week and has agreed to give a

> later to make sure word gets to the right people.  Please respond
> privately if you hope to attend so I can figure out whether I can host
> it at my place in SF or if I'll need to look for a bigger venue...
> I'll send the specific location and schedule soon as it's firm.

> PS2: Feel free to forward
