Items not taken: (may be covered later in another presentation)

Bios: (Still waiting for some speakers to submit brief bios)
 Andru: Andru works for SSU as Operating System Security Specialist. He
has been a member of NBLUG since the very first meeting. He has used
Linux for nearly a decade, and it is his operating system of choice. He
often lurks in the mailing list, but when he answers a question, he often
has something useful and clever to offer. He will discuss "bc" and
uncover useful features that you may not have considered useful unless
you saw them in action.

Kyle: Full-time Sysadmin for The Green Sheet, Inc. -- a local financial
 services publication. Kyle is finishing up a B.A. in Computer Science
part time. He has been a member of NBLUG since January of 2003.
 Kyle has been using Linux since his first Redhat 5.1 install at the
beginning of 1998 and has been using Linux exclusively as a desktop OS
since 1999.

Ron: (bio to be added after submission)

Troy: First introduced to Linux in 1995 or so on the beloved and overworked
 nermal.santarosa.edu. Switched to Linux on the desktop for fun and work
in 1999. Finds booting other OS's less necessary with the advent of
native Linux games such as RTCW, Unreal Tournament and Frozen Bubble.
