	Well, I tried to subscribe to the BLUGEvents list hosted by
tummy.com that was posted to the list a week or two ago and never
succeeded. I would put in 'linux at rkirkpat.net' as the address (I use for
all Linux related lists), and it would send the subscribe message to
linux-owner at rkirkpat.net (which I only saw as I have my mail server
sending me all error reports to postmaster). Maybe there has been no
response cause no one can subscribe to the list?

	I have already signed up for a full pass (speakers and the exhibit
floor) and had planned just to go to soak it all up. :) Then next year I
was going to volunteer to help with LUG booth... I have never been to a
Linux conference before (too busy with school until lately) and wanted to
have the full experience...
	Though if you need help with the BLUG booth, I am more than glad
to help in what ever way possible. As for something to demo, the best I
can offer is a Sparc 20 running Debian GNU/Linux w/a 19" Sun monitor...
Something of an eye catcher, but that is about all. Unfortuntely my small
alpha (UDB) I demoed at a BLUG meeting a few years back is dead and my big
alphas are too deeply integrated into my network to easily pull out (also,
unless you look closely, the alpha looks like a tower PC, i.e. not too eye
	Anyway, if I or my computers can be of any help, let me
know. TTYL.
