I'd be happy to participate in both 1 and 2.

I suggest NOT changing the meeting time/day from what it was last set to, 
unless this was the reason SMAUG died off. I personally stopped attending 
because my class schedule was interfering right up until just last week. 
Since the last meeting mentioned on the web site is Jan 9, it looks like I 
didn't miss much. If we restart on the second Thursday of every month, that 
makes this Thursday at 7 the first SMAUG Revival Meeting. Is anyone else up 
for that?

I have a box of networking gear that could help with an installfest (a big but 
aging 10bT hub and big but aging 10bT switch, an 8-port 10/100 switch, plus a 
few dozen short-to-medium cat 5 cables).
