unHoliday Meeting: Be a Grinch about Your Tech Gripe, Various

For the past several years, our holiday party has been filled with the 
notion of giving back to the community: your tips, your hacks, your 

So many people have proved selfless and assisted others that we feel 
it's time for a change. Let's be honest, we need a time to vent, and 
there's no reason the holiday season should be immune.

What are your gripes in technology? What do you hate dealing with at 
your job? Is it some high- (or low-) level scripting language? Some 
clunky and un-Unix-like application? Dealing with an under-documented 
and buggy non-BSD operating system?

Well, here's your chance to let others know how you feel. Prepare a ten 
minute or so presentation, with maybe a slide or two, and make your 
case. Be coherent and to-the-point, and maybe others will jump aboard 
with your argument.

Ping admin@ with your idea, and we look forward to having a meeting 
which let's us vent out very unholiday season gripes.
