I've changed it up a bit from what was there last night.  The *code* is
much better, even if the *look* might not be ideal.  On that note, I'll
confess that I'm not creative at all when it comes to stuff like this,
and for the most part, I don't see problem :-)  I tend to prefer a more
"industrial" look, for the most part, as useless fluff just ain't my
thing...   With that said, suggestions are welcome.  Is the general
layout idea okay?  If so, then colors are easy to modify.

I'll get that onto the webpage at some point.

I went ahead and registered too, just in case.

Hrm, I think I'm off the week of the 20th, so that should be fine.
Alternatively, the 6th might be better, as we'll (hopefully) have the
webpage stuff hammered out by then and will have a better idea of where
to go from there.

Sounds good.  Stu, if you can get me a mockup (even hand drawn will be
fine) of how you envision the site looking, I'll see about implementing

TLUG - that works.

Yeah, I think this is a good idea as well.

Yeah, I'd like to see Cameron involved as well, and consider firing off
an email to Darren too, just in case.
