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.)
