While there certainly will be some interesting discussion around these 
above topics, BALUG meeting attendees might wish to be aware that 
apparently, Henry's Hunan Restaurant http://henryshunan.com/natoma.html 
doesn't have electrical outlets as available for powering computing 
devices near its customer tables to the same high degree as does Cafe 
Enchante.  Unsure about the availability and reliability of the

While electrical outlets might be a bit problematic near customer tables 
at Henry's Hunan Restaurant, at the same time, those SF-LUG participants

meetings.  IMNSHO, I've found that CD's are the lowest-common-denominator 
among nearly _all_ optical-media-reading devices, as opposed to DVD's.
