Well, we could also rotate the meetings among a few different
locations, once we get the user's group going.  One "plus" for
RPI is we'd have network access, and that might be useful.

Two minuses is that we're not very central for the capital
district, and that parking around here can be a headache when
the fall and spring semesters are in session.  I'm in another
capital-district group (uNYuug == upper NY unix users group),
and for many months they asked me about having a meeting on
the RPI campus.  I finally set one up for one of their monthly
meetings, and since then they've never asked to come back!

And I think we could avoid any complaints from Jesse by having
the meetings be at the Krispy Kreme place in Latham!    :-)
