Kinda like BALUG! ;) ;)

They've usually been on the ball, though.

I'd like to do this.  I could use it as a rendevous point to meet
some other north-bay geek friends.

Also possible...  Though I'm already a bit overwhelmed with LUGOD.

Someone closer should do that. :)

Someone closer should DEFINITELY do that. :)

Nope, not I.  I haven't done any mailing list or list archival stuff.
LUGOD's has been handled by Henry House and Pete Salzman, and in the
past, folks at Mother.com, I believe.

BTW - I just signed up for their list yesterday, and poked in to say
"hi, you guys need help?"  The one response so far (which I didn't
read all of yet) mentions your "Recipe for a Successful LUG," so
they at least know what direction they should be going in.
