Thanks Chuck!

I didn't really think much about much advertising the meeting online,
because the place we were meeting isn't really ideal.  Seating was pretty
much limited to about 4 people, clustered around a power outlet, and I
expected 3 people to come.  I think I'd like to have our first announced
meeting Saturday December 6th.  I'm going to try to find a more
accommodating location by then.
