most LUGs are informal, ad hoc groups (i believe there's
a legal term for such that legitimizes informal groups for a
particular legal status).
SF-LUG is such. See the web site for specifics, especially
the parts asking for volunteers to help here and there
(manage the web site and, soon, to help with the machine
in its new colo space should it go down).
as to PenLUG, John's got it right: there is an umbrella
group of do-gooders called California Community Colocation
Project (unfortunately sporting the initials CCCP).
for information and links.
PenLUG's depending on CCCP, which is having money
problems, and so PenLUG is asking its members to help out.
Sympathetic, I forwarded their request for help to our bunch
in the event some of us feel kindly and able to lend a fiscal
I'm copying Bill Ward, the PenLUG honcho, for verification,
correction, additional info.
