yeah, I guess my suggestion for a Google Calendar was a non-starter for at
least both of those reasons.

And yet, there is this Bay Area LUG google calendar that is helpful:

But maybe all of this is duplicative of Rick Moen's work here:


Suggestions?  My first impluse is that it might just make sense to email
stuff to Rick's calendar, linked above.  Rick has been maintaining this
calendar for years and years now, and so maybe it makes sense to bring
eyeballs where they have the best chance of finding updated, accurate
stuff.  The only downside to doing so is that it continues to place a lot of
work on Rick, and what if he takes a vacation or something?  But Rick has
been going strong for a long time now, and doesn't seem to show any signs of
fatigue, so it seems as if it will be fine to continue to maybe just use
Rick's page.
