Hi Glenn,

I'm ashamed to admit that I've been living in Edinburgh two years now, and 
haven't got around to attending a single EdLUG meeting, although a few 
friends of mine have. I'm sure there's scope for a UKTeam/Scotland branch; 
at any rate it would be excellent if we could get a few Edinbunters 
together in town somewhere for a few small drinks and laughs one evening.

Any others in the area?

Btw, I know that at the Forest Cafe in town, they run Ubuntu on their 
public-access internet machines, so it might be worth having a chat with 
the folks in there; maybe that would also be a good place to advertise any 
meet-ups we organise.

(Oh, and hello to the list as well, while I'm at it.)
