Well, i'm ready to yammer on about my latest linux doofers. Eg. I've
been playing with writing filesystems in python - a revision control
filesystem. And i'd be interested to hear what other people are up to.

The wiki is a "pull" instead of "push" based content model (email is a push).
So you read it if you want to. Could be interesting.

We have talked about changing the clug site many times in the past and nothing
ever happened, so i'd be pretty dumbfounded if a clug wiki was born ! I say just do
it, if the admin has the time. If nothing happens then pull the plug.
