That's awesome, thanks Dr. Timmons.  I've forward your post to SacLUG
and RoseLUG, our closes LUG neighbors, as well as SVLUG in the San Jose area,
one of the biggest LUGs in the region.

I've also put a note up on LUGOD's front page, and will post a short note
to our 'vox-announce' list, to make sure everyone has the opportunity to hear
about this.

Hopefully we can get something together soon.  Perhaps a special Installfest
event earlier in October (we have a regular IF scheduled mid-month, last
I checked).

Good luck!!!

-bill!
