I debated whether or not to send this here.  The clincher was figuring the
more, the merrier 8)  The main point of interest (possibly even more than
seeing Wargames on DVD!!!) is this reply I got.

And now, the forwarded message...

Subject: The meeting AND A movie showing for the discriminating hacker!

The meeting went as planned at the JBE whiteboards.

Discussion included a bit about the installfest, end of academic year
plans, the Smaug installfest, and scripting.  By the time the night was
through, I had finished up a Slackware autoupdate script which does
everything that anyone could ever want it to do.

That will of course be submitted to Volkerding.

And the movie showing.

When: Thursday May 16th, 5pm
Where: The Armory (Just off of Bay and Nobel)
What:

  Your chance to see  ...Wargames...

Newbies welcome!

Chips, salsa, and drinks (alcoholic, soda, &c) will be served!  Bringing

To get to The Armory:

  From Campus: Go down Bay to the first stoplight and turn left onto Nobel
Dr., which is actually the only way you can turn onto Nobel since if you
turn right you will be on Iowa Dr.  Continue on Nobel until you come to
McMillan Dr. and turn left onto it.  (If you turn right you will be in
someone's living room and The Armory will not be held liable.)  The
Armory is on the right in the middle of the first block, #305.  It is a
two-story house, off-white with brown trim.
