resistance, webpage update and business cards

When I first started getting the PNW team up and running I sat down and
wrote a bunch of notes as to why M$ is so appealing to users.  I think it
would be intresting to collaborate on ways of abolishing the WIntel tax and
distributing Ubuntu.  I'll dig up my notes and through them out to the rest
of the team tonight.

I also wanted to give everyone an update on our new team webpage (yes I'm
still working on it).  Currently we have had a template for our team page
created by Paul.  Mike created our new team logo. So I am currently working
on getting a team forum up and running as well as filling in the rest of the
content on the page.

Sorry I haven't updated the information on the applicable project WIKI's but
things have been busy in my world so I'm just juggling the work.

The loco team admin loved our business card concept and asked that I send it
out to the loco team list where it was warmly received.  One person
did mention that the picture looked a little pixilated and that we might
want to clean it up or save it in a higher resolution to ensure a crisp
clean look when the business cards are printed.  Does anyone have a decent
printer?  It would be nice to try printing a copy of the cards to see if
this is a problem that needs to be addressed (before I have kinko's print a
box).
