I should actually be making it to SF-LUG this evening.
Hopefully I won't be late getting there, but I may be.
In any case, I've a review copy book to give away too.
I'll also have CDs/DVDs/ISOs available:

Friday I received review copies of two of each of the books noted
further below.  I'll do my more-or-less usual of generally giving away
one per User Group as I make it to the various User Group meetings, and
looks like I'll actually be making it to SF-LUG today, so that's first
up on my calendar.
