I started going to CLUG meetings in 1993, after David Bell gave me my first
Linux distro (on 5.25" floppies: MCC Linux 0.99 pl 10+). The meetings then were
in a large lecture theatre somewhere - you had to eat your potato chips out in
the foyer. No pizza then - that was reserved for the Christmas meeting.

Cheers ... Duncan.
