w00t - I'm here, too

I'm not sure - but I'll see what I can find out. If not, I have a couple of other ideas that might work for locations to meet.
I'm around the Valley Junction area... definitely would be cool to meet some other Linux fans, maybe even work our way to an install fest or something.

Should I upload my edited version of that poster somewhere? If so, where?

Are there any meeting rooms at DMACC that we could possibly use for a 
local users group.
What neighborhood  of the Des Moines area do you live in? I can provide 
you with transportation if need be.
It would be nice if all the DSM people could get together, maybe at a 
coffee shop or bookstore. What do people think?
