    Just for clarity, the linux sys adm group meets 
on tuesdays from 3 to 6; there's a C and assembler 
on Linux study group on Tuesdays from 6 to 7:30 or 
so. There's a linux user group meeting every 
wednesday from 6 to 8. 

    As to the other things you've mentioned, others 
also have ideas they want to bring to the place; 
like shelves on the walls and a projector and audio 
in the turing classroom--available for anybody to 
use, of course. seems right to collaborate on shared 
ideas, yes? 

    We've been maintaining a two-host LAN in Turing 
for over a year, powered off almost all the time as 
a matter of courtesy to the NB electric bill. it needs 
a small switch on the west wall and on the east wall. 

   (sigh) judging from the email, i'm guessing there 
will be at least one discussion item for tonight's 
meeting.
