Heh.

Aaron Lehmann, Debian developer and all-around good kid, is active with
the on-campus LUG (IIRC, that's SlugLUG).  In his sophomore year.
There's also and off-campus group, I think.  Anyhow, SlugLUG's looking
for good folks.  Have your filial unit contact:

     aaronl@vitelus.com

(It's a sufficently well-publicized address, at 5700+ Google hits, I
don't mind publishing it).

I've heard a few ResNet horror stories through Aaron, though I think
part of it's him just not realizing how much of a PITA it is dealing
with a legacy MS Windows network.  Let alone one composed of 20k systems
you don't directly control, but have to provide services for.


Peace.
