All snarkiness aside, if this isn't a clear indication that the meetings 
should be moved to Rackspace I don't know what is. Piecing together a 
scenario from Howard's, Craig's and Bruce's testimonies, it seems like 
the SC faculty are not interested in SATLUG, don't pay attention to the 
posted notices of SATLUG meetings and not enough people showed up to 
indicate to Howard that the meeting had been moved/cancelled. Sounds to 
me that the SAC faculty, and supposedly significant group of interested 
SAC students, not only don't actively encourage SATLUG participation, 
they don't care about SATLUG, they take over the established meeting 
area from SATLUG and they don't attend the meetings in any significant 
number. Do we need any further proof that the SAC-era of SATLUG has come 
to an end?

I propose another vote to move the meetings to a much more hospitable 
environment, i.e. Rackspace.
