Re: [PLUG] New location for PLUG West meetings...

FIS has some fancy projectors. Granted, we don't have food or wifi, but the view is good. :)

I asked Paul to cancel the next few meetings because historic turnout has been depressingly low during these months. Lack of speakers lined up also made me wonder just how many people would come.

I am heartened by the renewed interest in the meetings on the mailing list.

If people really want a December meeting, lets do it. Besides, the Linux installation on my Netbook suffers intermittent hangs. I need to talk with people who might have suggestions on how to fix it.
