May I add my vote to that and at the same time say I also appreciate the work 
that Rod, Rainer and others are doing for Linux beginners in the PCUG linux 
learners SIG.

One big difference between CLUG and the Linux Learners SIG is that the latter 
meets during office hours while most CLUGGERS are hard at work. So perhaps 
its no accident that most of us oldies look first to the Linux Learners SIG 
for face to face support and social contact.

I think having TWO Linux groups and their associated mailing lists in Canberra 
is a good thing.

By the way, Lana, the PCUG Linux Learners SIG does occasionally have requests 
for help from women and I'm sure all attendees would welcome a talk from you. 

I know that would mean taking an hour off work for you but perhaps you might 
consider it worth while? 

PS I've always assumed the CLUG list was 'closed' because my (few) posts seem 
to take some hours to appear on list and I thought the delay was due to the 
need for approval by the list administrator. Can anyone explain?
