29 Mar – 3 Apr: sprang over Easter with CSS floating style, industrial sensor converters, OSDC early bird reminders, NETWAYS jobs and an April special for Nagios/Icinga voice notification services.
The development team kicked off with Marius’ CSS2 tip for floating page layouts. First in ‘clearfix’, inserting a ‘clear’ after a float, second with ‘overflow:hidden|auto’ for a new display context. This ensures that the ‘clear’ doesn’t creep into the entire page, staying in the desired area automatically without needing to create strange margins.
On the monitoring front we reflected on the March project of the month, while Martin showed us how to integrate third-party sensors for those tricky industrial monitoring needs. From temperature sensors for pipelines or outdoors, to absolute pressure measurement and CO ² sensors – all these industrial sensors can be converted into electricity or voltage so their results can be transmitted over long distances to an AKCP sensorProbe2 which then forwards them on via SNMP to any monitoring software such as Nagios and Icinga.
Following on, Manuela reminded early birds to snap up the last ticket specials for the OSDC coming up on 23 – 24 June, while Karo announced our search for 3 new enthusiastic professionals to join the NETWAYS team. Project managers, Linux consultants and bookkeepers are welcome to apply, as are any would-be apprentices for software development.
Of course, no April could begin without a fool on the 1st day of the month – check out the newest voice notification services we’re offering through our partner call center in India and enjoy!
