Actually, the name of that Linux user group is CABAL (old in-joke).
Being named "CABAL" since its 1997 founding at a Linux-based Internet
cafe in SOMA, that LUG's logical choice of name for its _mailing list_
was therefore Conspire (started in mid-2000 using Majordomo, then
converted over to GNU Mailman in Dec. 2000). Get it?
 Sure, we do BBQ (since, aside from that and free parking, what else
are the suburbs good for? ;-> ), but it's also a full-blown real,
meets-regularly-and-everything user group and twice-monthly installfest.
