I knew if I harassed you guys enough - you'd come out of lurking ;)

How far south of Raleigh? Do you often go to Raleigh? Could you make
meetings or classes in Raleigh? What's a convenient place for you?
Nothing's set in stone! If we are doing certain things in an area that's
not good for people, then maybe we can make different arrangements. It's
all totally open for ideas now - we're just going to get together and
discuss the possibilities and what we can get done.

Thanks for your support - and for all the others who've written to me in
support of this - thank ya'll :) It's not going to be me doing this though
- I'm just good at organizing some of this.

That sounds like a great opportunity! I wonder which distribution their
teaching on? Maybe if you take the classes you can fill us in on some more
information. Does anyone know if any of the other Technical Colleges around
here offer Linux classes?
