I hate to admit this, but I didn't remember the wiki. Searching for
"Ubuntu Oregon" on Google found a loco team portal page which looks good
except the link to www.ubuntu-oregon.org gave me a DNS error. I guess
that's the website they're not hosting until the team is (re)verified.

Back to the wiki, I notice it says the IRC meeting is May 13.

The Google search I mentioned also found a Twitter account (last tweet
April 28, 2013), Facebook page and LinkedIn profile (last post Feb. 16,
2012). So between the wiki, loco portal and 3 social media, this team has
at least 5 URLs. The point being, a website is yet another URL and
updating the existing ones might be more benefit.

The URL that I think would be the easiest to give people verbally (for
example you meet someone who seems interested in learning more) is
probably facebook.com/ubuntuoregon as it's simpler than the other URLs.
The page itself looks good, but under "about" it links to the non-working
.org I mentioned a few paragraphs ago, rather than the wiki or the loco

One note is that, although I've been reading the mailing list for a while,
the most I've done is reply to an email now and then, so don't worry about
my comments too much as compared to others who've contributed far more. I
just hope something I've written is helpful. :)

Oh I guess I got spoiled when I lived across the street from a grocery
store and within walking distance of the job I had back then. :) No I
haven't made it to any of the Salem meetings... don't have the patience
for city traffic! Anyway, with any luck I'll be moving in the next few
months. Maybe I'll end up near an Ubuntu Hour and/or a LUG.
