Hi Folks 

For those in the Austin, Texas area we'll be meeting again this Thursday 
evening (8/26). Karmasphere and Pentaho will be presenting and I'll also 
be giving a quick introduction to Hadoop for all the new attendees before 
we begin.

Full details are available here -

Someone's discussed it, I'm against because (a) there's a lot of 
historical configuration stuff in there, (b) ini files are less flexible 
than XML, (c) neither of them are very dynamic. when the NN goes down 
and you want the DNs to reconnect to a different host, how do you do 
that when all data is read at start time?
