I was talking with the president of SFVLUG at SCaLE - I said I was a
member of SFLUG (actually, I said SVLUG). I said "We're one letter more
efficient than you all". He said "We're one letter more informative
than you all." Touche! :)

===== PEOPLE ARE TALKING:
Chris said: the meeting went very well for Feb. 7.
Windsor said: I am interested in Jack's
idea of focusing a group on promotion of Linux as a desktop operating
system and targeting perspective Linux users. I'm enthusiastic about
doing something to this effect, like hosting an install night, standing
in Sproul Plaza near a card table, etc..
David said: the USB headset I ordered and will
pick up at the post office tomorrow -
Markt9 (from virtual lug) told me that it was a very nice one. I can't
wait until I get the chance to try it live.
& Windsor says: I posted some guidelines for people editing the web
page. Also, (and I'm not trying to be a kill-joy) I think the smilies
should be left in IRC and private e-mails. Every time I see one on the
site I think of myspace.com or icanhazcheeseburger.com.
john_re says: Thanks for the tipz, everyone. - I'll keep 'em in mind.
ps: & more doubbble pluz big thanks to Windsor, for the new website
