I interrupt fight club to present what, in my opinion, is an oversight.
I know that several people out there have bad memories of the VA
debacle - myself included, but I do believe that VA supported SVLUG
quite a bit back in the day, including handing out a ton of things,
lending sysadmin and web design support, and not to mention, creating a
steady stream of SVLUG officers. Ok, so several of them were already
involved with SVLUG before they joined VA, but I feel that it's remiss
not to recognize a company that actively encouraged employees to get
involved with SVLUG.
My last days at VA were not a time that I like to think about very
often, but I and several others were quite proud of our community roles
"back in the day". I would like to see VA's role in early Linux
Now back to your regularly scheduled fight club.
