A little history: Mickey and I were part of the first beer-drinkin' food 
eatin' F/BUNY 
(it was FUNY, changed to BUNY after we branched out from FreeBSD to all 

I still have the original web pages of the original BSD User group in NYC. 
I met Mickey in '99 I think...

wow, ancient history now...

It wasn;t the same as this user group, it was primarily social, and did 
things like take DES, and Luigi Rizzo to dinner when they were here from 
out of town, and then we manned the BSD advocacy booths at all the NYC 
LWCE events for a little while. (and The Bazaar)

its hard to believe I've been involved with the BSD community almost 10 
years now...
