Going on Safari?

Note: This offer no longer exists Ever wonder how to fit all those O’Reilly books on a bookshelf? Try using a virtual bookshelf and an O’Reilly subscription service.

Do we have any topics?

This area is for the proposal of topics for future meetings.If anyone has any ideas for meetings, please post them here. If you have something you want to present, please feel free to volunteer to do so. It would be a good idea to post meeting ideas individually as new topics, so we can have a separate running commentary on each topic. Once we get a few on the go, we can have a vote on what we want to see when.

Apathy Reigns!

As has become customary, attendance is rather low at the meetings. If anyone has an idea as to how to increase the attendance, it would be a good thing. Is there a special topic someone would like to see? Perhaps a training night on some obscure topic - or even a common one. A bring your favorite hack and talk about it…. The list can be endless, so if someone has something they would like to talk about, find out about, or even teach, here’s a chance.
