Sounds good, I'll start asking around for a location.

I expect the best time to do this would be a Saturday or Sunday
afternoon? Squeezing this into a weekday evening might be a bit much.
And when will you be ready to do this?

I think there is still enough interest, especially since the West talk
focused on HD and glazed over MythTV configuration itself.

PLUG would be interested in the first and third. Xen has been pretty
heavily covered by Montco and West because we have our meetings at
Unisys (Blue Bell and Malvern, respectively) and Unisys is big into
Xen development, there have been more than a few talks by Unisys
employees. Feel free to drop me a note off-list if you want to do
presentations on any of these, when you're available and which
location you'd like to present at, we'll find something that'll work.
