Haha, my music collection is not something to be put on random. If I had
known that had happened, I would have changed it. I've got everything from
Daft Punk to AC/DC to Korn to Beck. I didn't think of making a playlist
though, I figured people would put on stuff that they liked. So yeah next
time I'll make a playlist. Cake, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Arctic Monkeys,
Gorillaz, The Bravery.... I'll make something good for next time ;-).

I think we need to find places to leave fliers. And hand more out. We had
more advertising last time. Plus, the snow definitely didn't help. For
Boston, we should get a much larger turnout. Some well placed advertising
would be good. Maybe a mention in the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter? Is there an
Ubuntu calendar?
