Fair enough.  But lists aren't terribly useful unless the lint is sorted
out.  Certainly, I understand the limits of *donated* time and effort.
However, that Essex group site appears to not have been touched in just shy
of 10 YEARS.

Methinks "continually" might be a bit of an exaggeration. :) That said, I've
looked over each LUG on this list, and all of them that I could understand
appear to have something interesting to offer.  (Except, for now,
http://www.linuxbh.org/ which appears to be over their bandwidth cap)

I don't feel that going in search of a few more LUG's is a productive use
of my (or your) time.  Rest assured, I contribute to this great bazaar
myself, with donations, with time and with many dozens of messages dropped
in thanks.  I greatly appreciate the efforts of people such as yourself
whose contributions are far greater.
