[PLUG] [Fwd: Mention Usenix Conference at Meeting?]

I received this request last week. Altho Peter has the date of our
meeting wrong, it's still a good announcement for PLUG members.

Hi Mike:

Can you please mention at the June 6 meeting that USENIX is holding its  
Annual Technical Conference in Boston June 27-July 2? They'll be lots  
of linux activities and training at the conference. Also: is the  
conference announcement below an appropriate posting to the group?  We  
don't want to be perceived as spamming. (Question: can we post directly  
or can you post it for us?)

There's a PDF flier for the conference available at:  
It is two pages, designed to be printed double-sided.

Are there other mechanisms we can use to get the message out to your  
membership? Or let me know if I'm being harassing.

Thanks for any reply, -Peter
