Just relax.  I feel like you want me to pick up where you left off,
but I jumped in originally because what you were doing wasn't working.
 I don't think it is important to get into the specifics, but I'm
certainly not here to just get pressured by you.  I would like
discussion about the SETC to be more public in general.  I understand
that you are still trying to sort things out, but I think you need to
either be in or out.

Right now I am just gathering information.  I only know a little about
the SETC.  I just learned last week that they close at 8:30!  I was
hoping that it would be open a little later than that so I could have
more time to play around with things...  Anyway, this Thursday I will
be able to go earlier so I will get things sorted then.

I think inviting folks down to help install the vbox installs is a
good idea.  But, I don't want to ask folks for help, per say.  For
now, I want people to do what they find fun and enjoyable.  So if
anyone is reading this on the list, feel free to express yourself!  If
there is interest, I can make sure to have something ready for

I do feel at a disadvantage that I'm not able to attend the full
Tuesday.  I hear stories about some folks showing up, and being
disappointed because there isn't enough help on Tuesday, or something.
 I really don't know, which is why I would like to create a survey /
feedback form.  Not only would that help me to understand what kinds
of things people are looking for, but I think it will also help the
group to focus our energy.
