Hey SFLUGers, Jim, & Professor Verma -

This is a great opportunity to bring some important education &

== We'll probably be meeting at the FreeSpeech Cafe at Moffitt
Undergrad Library, as usual. See the BTIP web site for the map link &
directions, important things to bring, & any last minute

I'd like to minimize use of laptop speakers audio output, because that
creates possible feedback problems into other users microphone inputs.
