I'm sorry we missed you. I am usually there early, but alas, this week it
was not to be.

You are more than welcome to post anything you'd like and see if it catches
on, indeed this is part of the idea behind the list in the first place (even
though it may seem at times to only be here for meeting announcments). To
date this has been a very low traffic list, but anything relevant to the
topic (BSD) is fair game. If you have something of particular interest,
we've also discussed having people give presentations at the meetings. This
is obviously contingent on having a non zero turnout and a meeting space
that is conducive to this type of activity, but it seems like Patrick may
have this covered for us in the future.

I'd like to keep it directly relevant to *BSD, though this is by no means a
strict rule . A weekly programming question might be interesting, but I'd
personally prefer it if this did not become the majority of traffic. Given
the very low traffic we have, this could easily happen....

However in the end it's something for the group to decide, not me alone.

As an aside, anybody buying/already have bought a new Intel Mac?  I

I'm very interested in hear how you like it, and please feel free to post
your experiences with it here.
