I'd like to find an LUG in my area, the only one I know of in the vicinity isn't really too close.

I'm jealous. My mother threw out my XEGS w/XF551 in my teen years. Damn I even remember the floppy drive's model number.

They should hold the meetings where there is beer served... And pizza. Beer and pizza might attract people...

The last "LUG" I attended, all they wanted to do was blah blah blah for hours on the gnome desktop and android eye candy.

I might be alone in Yawnstown, Ohio.

london calling

Didn't know about these. Just checked and London UK's last LUG seems to have been 5th Oct 2010. None planned as far as I can tell either. Kent's looks like it is still going. Perhaps because they don't see consuming beer as a primary purpose. That could be done without an LUG. May well go to Kent's on 8th March... I say may because I've got ridiculous commitments and its a bit far but I like the idea of it..

I'm telling you: Beer! Beer and Linux. A great combination.

I think the fact that I don't want it to be online only is whats causing the issues.

That's nice to hear! I grew up in PDX, but had to move to Seattle for work. Portland is defiantly doable and any excuse to drive down / take the train / BOLT is a good excuse...

Geez, tell me about it! I just found out this week that Oregon has the second highest income tax in the country as of 2013, at 9.9%! Behind only California at 13.3%. No wonder I can't seem to make any money here! I'm going back to school for infosec, and then maybe I'll move to Washington, which has no income tax.

I've only been to a couple of the meetings (so far) but the Boston LUG (www.blu.org) seems to be doing pretty well. There is also a seperate LUG for Desktop users. I haven't been to any of those meetings yet but would like to get a chance in the near future. They are a remnant of the old Boston Computer Society which folded up shop back in the 90's. Fortunately some of the UGs continued on independently and the Linux Group was one of them.
