This presentation will profile the computer and IT usage and support characteristics at Dainen-ji, also known as the Zen Centre of Ottawa, the training monastery of White Wind Zen Community; and the transition from proprietary to Open Source Software. The usage characteristics will include types of services such as e-mail, messaging, archiving, files-sharing, printing, multimedia editing and web-hosting; and support characteristics will include hardware maintenance, software license management, anti-spam and anti-virus controls, user data backup and restore, and system re-imaging and build times.
Ven. Chunen Rampal provides Computing and IT support at the Zen Centre of Ottawa. He is always searching for ways to provide access to the Teachings of Zen Master Anzan Hoshin using non-proprietary formats, and increase reliability for the end-users.
Algonquin College is close to the corner of Woodroffe and Baseline and right across from the Baseline transitway station. Room T117 is in Building T. Free parking is available in lots 8, 9 and 12 after 5pm.
