Will attempt to again participate at this SF-LUG meeting from the same 
location as I did for the Jit.si meeting of November 1, 2020 [2].
As per the "Suggestions" paragraph within [2], plan to use a different 
desktop PC located much closer to the WAP in order to reduce "the severe 
audio and video lag times" previously experienced.
And also might use the Chromium browser ;-)

Further quoting Bobbie Sellers <bliss-sf4ever at dslextreme.com> from [1]:

Well, do not in any way wish to "take over" the convening of SF-LUG 
meetings myself, but will point out that there already *is* a pre-existing 
local Bay Area resource for Linux Distributions....

Quoting Michael Paoli <Michael.Paoli at cal.berkeley.edu> from [3] 
regarding his BALUG's 'giveaways (& wanted), hardware, CDs/DVDs, 
books/publications, ...' :
Okay, so the physical may be on hold or require special arrangements due 
to COVID-19 - but notwithstanding that - and some of these quite still 
apply ...

We typically have various giveaway items at BALUG meetings.  We'll
likely have at least the below plus additional items.

(could probably be arranged via snail mail or such, if needed) 
CDs/DVDs/ISOs, etc. - have a look here: 
Donations of blank or +-RW media, USB flash, or funding thereof, also 
appreciated.  See the above URL for details (and the inventory (qty.) of 
what we specifically have "burned" and available on-hand does also tend to 

The direct link to Michael's BALUG Distribution Library is [4].
A cursory view of the top-half of his current Distribution Library[4] 
shows that the listings (but not the currently *available* media!) appear 
to be most heavily skewed towards Debian GNU/Linux.

Cannot in any manner speak for Michael whether or not he would even wish 
to assume the role of *the* SF-LUG Distribution Librarian, though :-\

Merely pointing out this potential resource for bona fide, most definitely 
gpg-signature-validated [5] ;-D Linux distribution media.
