Actually, because I fuck around with learning all the shit _you_ already know, I
view my domains rather frequently and when I have a few bucks, I tack on a few

Send me a list of all the domains that 'matter' with all the relevant details
and I'll set something up. Hell, I'll set up calendaring in multiple places in
case one fails. How much advanced notice you want?

Rick, I know you've been carrying the _entire_ weight of svlug for _decades_. No
one is arguing that. It does also seem like a lot of people _care_ that _you_
keep doing it without offering to do any work. I've only been 'minimally'
handling eblug for less than a year and I already see where it's going; if I
don't do it, it'll go back to shit before anyone else steps in to do a fuckin'
thing. It's sad. Everyone has some fuckin' excuse why they can't simply update a
web page or send a bulk email reminder out; it's pitiful and the only time
someone gives a shit is when it doesn't get done. I had a guy who doesn't
contribute a fuckin' thing actually have the 'gall' to mention that I had forgot
to send out the meeting reminder one month. I was about to tell him to fuck
himself and get on it if it's so important to him but instead I ate it with a
smile, whatever.

I'll help with whatever I can but I can only do so much and a lot of the stuff
you need help with I _still_ have to learn. I'm more than happy to calendar shit
so we are reminded of important stuff. I'm more than happy to set up Exim4, SA,
Mailman and whatever else but I have to take the time to learn _how_ first. I'm
more than happy to help round up speakers (when I can find them). I'm more than
happy to do whatever, but we have only 'one' page of instructions so _you_ don't
have to be a broken record repeating the same shit all the time.


If there we're some kind of list I could refer to of shit that needs to get
done, maybe myself and others could refer to that and then somehow do a
notification to the rest of the volunteers that it's been done.

Huh, one more thing I need to do with my own lug. 

I only have so much time myself: wife, small kid, education, new job, eblug,
svlug, education 'outside' of formal education to be more useful, blah, blah,


Anyone got a few minutes to spare _besides_ Rick and myself to do any of this
shit that needs to get done? Anyone?!

Just ask, we're making a list...checking it twice...no one bites (we promise).
