| systemd adoption.
| 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
| interest in an installfest, we can certainly set up something.
| 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.
