As crush-hour traffic snarls get worse in north San Jose, some updates
are due for the directions to get to the Silicon Valley Linux User Group
(SVLUG) meetings which are held at Cisco Bldg 9...

The SVLUG meetings are held on first Wednesdays of the month at 7PM.  

One likely change is to add alternative routes which avoid eastbound
Tasman Drive and use Zanker Road instead for the approach to the meeting.

Are there any other suggestions how the meeting directions can be improved
for crush-hour traffic conditions?  Or any other suggested improvements
in other topics?

The idea behind having such detailed directions is that no potential
attendee should be lacking for enough info to find the place.  SVLUG
usually has 150-250 attendees depending on the speaker and the weather.
The detailed directions are believed to be a contributing factor to
the consistently good attendance.  So this question is mainly trying
to keep up that advantage...
