Hey, Jim,  Bobby, and company:

Please consider stopping by my place (1105 Altschul Ave. @ Gordon Ave.,
Menlo Park) before or after your South Bay foray, to hang out and chat,
and discuss hardware for Linux.  (I'll probably be working on some P4
rackmount servers I've recently received.)   And, of course, if you want
to duplicate any of CABAL's Linux & BSD CD/DVD collection, I'll have those.

My cellular:  650-283-7902.

By the way, if you're shopping for computer hardware in the South Bay,
I'd personally stop at Central Computer before going to Fry's.  For that
matter, Central has a perfectly fine office in SoMa -- not that I want
to discourage you from coming to visit.
