[PLUG] Great PLUG West meeting last night

PLUG West is off and rolling!  We met last night at Unisys in Malvern, which
is a great meeting space.  Thanks very much to Unisys for being such wonderful
hosts.  The seats are comfortable, the acoustics are excellent, and they even
provided cookies.

We had around thirty attendees, most of whom had never been to a PLUG meeting.
The Unisys Linux Systems Group gave a series of short presentations.  They had
five lined up, but we ran out of time after three.  

The three presentations were on Xen, Linux filesystem performance, and 
challenges encountered running Linux on very large-scale systems.  There was
a lot of great technical information, and I hope we'll be able to hear the
other two topics at a future meeting.

After the presentation we were able to tour the Unisys Linux labs, and viewed
the geneology of Unisys's high-end Linux hardware platform.  (And don't forget
the Univac in the lobby!)

Drawing on the locals' knowledge of the Great Valley area, we then repaired
to the Boathouse for post-event beers.  They had a nice assortment on tap,
including the excellent Flying Fish Hopfish IPA.

Thanks to everyone who showed up and helped make the first PLUG West meeting
a success.
