SPUG: SPUG Meeting Tonight?

Andy is right, our regularly scheduled meeting is tonight.
However, it usually takes us several weeks to recover from
any talk by The Damian, and he was just here recently, so
I haven't arranged any special program for this evening.
But if people want to congregate all the same, and discuss
the job market or other hot topics, so be it! On the other
hand, it would be a shame for Andy to go to the trouble of
setting up the room if nobody would show up, so those planning
to attend the impromptu meeting please make that fact known
to the list.
