Second, Ike's meeting is not really an installfest, but aimed at the
more general question of running OpenBSD on a laptop. If there's

For those who don't have a laptop to test out OpenBSD on and don't have
an extra disk to install it on, I recommend hitting Ebay for a Thinkpad,
even an ancient one. An x120e works nicely, and believe it or not, an
x60/61 is sufficient also. Don't pay a lot for either, and you'll
probably need to buy a new battery.
Note that the meeting is on February 10th, the SECOND TUESDAY of the month.
