    Hey, in addition to the email list for sf-lug,
there's the sf-lug web stie to help out with.
    The etiquette/protocol is heavier duty than
for the mailing list, mainly because of the
person who's letting us use it. That and my
promise our web stie wouldn't put a lot of
load on his box (which is at 200 Paul Street
with backup everything).
    The current plan is to keep the main page
lean and point out from it to more elaborate
CPU-punishing stuff on one of my boxes
(which have static IP assignments but no
domain names--at this point the numbers
are easier to remember than a lot of the
domain names).
    I like the current plan because if we screw
up on my boxes, the other guy won't leap
down my throat (and I won't leap down yours).
