The NEOSUG is FINALLY LIFTING OFF!
By laurar on Jan 22, 2007
But Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans. So for months those boxes sat patiently huddled in the corner of the basement. "Soon.." I'd mutter as I moved the christmas decorations past the boxes...and then the skiis, then the bicycles, and the camping gear. <sigh>.
Well, Today, I moved the saddle, the camping gear and the christmas stuff out of the way. "Hullo Fellas! Next week! It's Next Week!!"
They CAN'T WAIT!!
So, Come get your t-shirt at the inaugural meeting of the NEOSUG (New England Opensolaris User Group)
