HI Everybody,

Our next WLUG meeting is approaching soon.  On Wednesday, October 10th,
2007, we'll be having our Newbie Night at WLUG.  On this occasion, new
Linux users are most welcome to attend and ask their questions to the
more experienced Linux users in a non-intimidating environment.

Experienced folks are also welcome to attend to help out the new users.
 Try to remember what it was like when you were a new user and tailor
your answers accordingly!  The new folks will be very appreciative.

Also, if some people would be willing to burn a few CDs or DVDs with
their favorite Linux distribution or Live CD, then the new users will
have choices that they can take home and try at their leisure.  My
personal recommendations would be Knoppix, (K)ubuntu, OpenSuse, Damn
Small Linux, and some RedHat derivative (Fedora, CentOS, etc).  Feel
free to share whatever your favorite may be.  I also think that a few
laptops running these different distros would be great demo tools for
the new users.

One last note:  unfortunately, I will not be present for this meeting.
I will be in Austin, TX on business.  I've asked Chuck and Frank if they
would run the meeting.  Just because I can't make it, you should all
still get together and enjoy the meeting.  This is your chance to make
fun of me in my absence (as opposed to doing so in my presence!).  :-)
I will have access to email during my trip.

Have fun, and remember, we were all new...once upon a time.
