Yeah; if you can. The CABALists are actually crazy enough to *SUGGEST*
the idea & advertise a contact-point for it. =8-O (along with the
home-address (+ maps & directions) of one of their members, who often
hosts their regular meetings). On 2nd thought, maybe you DON'T want to
get an install from people *that* crazy... ;)

I meant BALE (simply for all the events they have managed to collect);
but it goes for LUGOD too (and NBLUG, FWIW)... I've been *very*
impressed by all the LUG's I've interacted with, on any basis. To
judge from the evidence, Linux apparently turns ordinary folk into
people who are both nice & knowlegable. ;)

(who actually DOES understand the difference between cause/effect
& that association isn't causation; but has found the difference
between LUG folk and the random populace to be... well... stunning;
so blush all you want).
