heh.  very cute, jeff.   :)

jey, the best thing you can donate to lugod is time.  attend the
meetings faithfully.  that's the number one way to support a LUG.

if you want to donate more time, help with the numerous projects that
lugod is involved in.  lugod is the most active lug i've ever seen, and
all the activities (from demoing linux at conferences to monthly demos
in davis to presentations at organizations to installfests) need
volunteers.   some of these things need technical expertise (ie-
installfests) and some need none (demoing linux at the co-op).

time could also mean time spent answering questions on vox-tech,
engaging in friendly conversation on vox, or even running for an officer

in terms of money, most students and out of work people donate a dollar
or two, but i've seen up to $20.00.

people with real jobs, making real money, tend to give $5 - $20.  i've
seen some really generous people give $50.

these are averages, so don't feel bound by them.

but if you had to choose one or the other (time or money) lugod would
prefer to have your time.   :)
