To do what with it?  On the one hand you can form a SIG any time you
like about whatever you want, but on the other hand nothing will happen
unless people are sufficiently interested.  While there's an interest in
buying EEE PCs, I'm yet to see an interest in hacking them, or
programming up some new app for them, or whatever.

What I would suggest is that all those people who've got one register on
the CLUG Portal (http://clug.anu.edu.au) and write up reviews in the
hardware section.  It'd be nice to see these things available and
searchable on our website.  That goes for all of you who get new
technology over Christmas. :-)

Have fun,
