Thanks Othniel...I figured you would remember even if I couldn't.

There are a whole bunch of hams running Linux who want to run their data

SATLUG comes through again.

As I remember from the early days when we met at Trinity University, the 
thought/desire for SATLUG was to become a prime source of Linux 
information for the San Antonio and surrounding area.  I think you have 
done that.
