Well, we don't really do anything between meetings, so there isn't
anything to write about. Now, if you're voluteering to come to the
meetings, take notes and type up minutes, then I'll post them.

While I agree with you on threaded, I don't think it makes sense to
add that to the current program. Instead, find a package for this and
I'll look at installing it. But I'll veto anything that uses accounts
and passwords or java/script (perl is ok). So, try not to pick
something that is more complicated than our level of usage warrants.

Many such packages are based on mailing lists, and I tried to move us in
that direction. You can send submissions to "support-forum@syrlug.org"
(see note (1) above). I also get all submissions mailed to me, you
can too (see note (2) above). But no one seems to want to use that
feature. :-(
