[Balug-Admin] BALUG November Announcements

BALUG Volunteers:

Michael Paoli & I mailed the November announcement to the following LUG
mailing lists (see below) and we have planed to send reminders on Sunday
or Monday.  

Quick Question: Does anybody know if BayLISA, East Bay LUG or Stanford LUG
have mailing lists?  If so, links to their registration pages would be
much appreciated, as I have not been able to find them.

Lastly, I have to say that I thought Bill Kendrick's post to balug-talk on
November 10th regarding LUGOD was the best LUG announcement message I have
seen yet.  Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery so I borrowed a
lot of his style in sending out the message.    

LUGs mailed for Nov Meeting:

 Bay Area Debian
 SF Perl Mongers
 Oakland Perl Mongers

Anyway, ... hopefully you all got/saw it, but in any case the
announcement is out:
