Wow I'm sorry I guess I wasn't clear - not asking for any changes there - just
saying it was great that there were some tables there, rather than just chairs.

That'd be awesome.  We can either pile the stuff somewhere from week to week
or let your guys handle it - let me know.

Awesome.  That's all I needed to know.

Just let me know the details - what you mean by "presentation
information" - and I'll
ensure that's handled.

I'll handle it for now - maybe someday there'll be a "kernel walk-thru liaison"
volunteer role within SVLUG... who knows.

I'm happier than a pig in mud (...that I had a chance to actually say
that!) regarding
everything you guys are doing for SVLUG.  If __ANYTHING__ ends up being a
hassle for you guys, let me know and I'll do my best to tweak things
so it's not.
