Current NORLUG Status: Organizer Needed
Now that Adam has poked the NORLUG mailing list about the existence of this web site, I feel inspired to write an update to be helpful and nice: I"m going to post an update as to the status of this group, in order to inform and potentially engage new members or prospective members. I haven't participated in the group for over a year, and not the current President, so consider this an unauthorized post, therefore prone to edits or corrections. I'm quite confident, however, that I'll be able to satisfy anybody's curiosity about NORLUG to the complete satisfaction of Steve, Adam, and Chip,
NORLUG hasn't met socially for over a year. Membership slowly diminished, but the mailing list is active (links on the right-hand site save me trouble from typing href tags and angle brackets).
There is, however, a way to breathe life back into the group as far as regular formal and informal meetings. As people move into and out of Northfield, at least 5% are bound to be Linux users. Effectively that means somewhere in Northfield exists someone who would like to start organizing meetings again. Meetings are not hard to set up. The Northfield Public Library for instance has generously allowed us to meet there in the past. A phone call, a post to the mailing list, and a meeting commences. A little note or two to the Northfield News, and an event submission to Northfield.org, and magically a new meeting appears with people knowing about it in advance and attending.
Interested persons should register on this site and post an inquiry on the NORLUG mailing list, and Adam will most likely set anyone up to accomplish things.
