Re: [vox] Arkeia Power Award

I can honestly say LUGOD is the best Linux user's group that I have ever 
attended!  On another note, it is the only Linux users group that I have 
attended.  As, Henry pointed out do not under estimate the power off the 
website, it is a great site and if I remember correctly was up for an 
award.  If it was not for the web site, I probably would not have found 
out about LUGOD.  When I was first looking for a LUG I went to the link 
off of linux.org.  There are several LUG's listed in the bay area even 
one in San Francisco where I work.  Why did I choose LUGOD?  Several 
reasons:  a very nice easy to follow / understand and up to date 
website.  I had no problems finding Z-World thanks to the map on the 
site.  Also, LUGOD is the Closest location to where I live (Vacaville).  
I have worked in San Francisco for 1 1/2 years and still have not gone 
to the LUG, mostly due to them not keeping there website up to date, but 
also as I would have to drive in to get home.  One thing that is very 
nice about LUGOD is I felt welcome the first time I went.  I think I 
became a member at the first meeting I went too.

Like Mark said as south as Vacaville (me where I live), but in reality I 
come from San Francisco (where I work) to make it each meeting which 
with traffic is a 2.5 hour (72 mile) trek.
