sig-beer-west FAQ

1.  Q: Your announcement says "techies and their friends".  How do I
       know if I'm a techie, or a friend of one?

    A: Well, actually, you don't have to be a techie to attend.  You
       just have to be able to find the sig-beer-west sign at this
       month's event.  That's it.  Simple, huh?

2.  Q: I'm not really a beer person. In fact I'm interested in
       hanging out, but not in drinking. Would I be welcome?

    A: Absolutely! The point is to hang out with fun, interesting
       folks.  Please do join us.

3.  Q: I've been thinking about attending sig-beer-west for some time
       now. Maybe I should start with this event?

    A: Yes!!

sig-beer-west was started in February 2002 when a couple Washington,
D.C. based systems administrators who moved to the San Francisco Bay
area wanted to continue a dc-sage[7] tradition, SIG-beer, which is
described in sig-beer.NET[8] web space as:

SIG-beer, n., origin lost to intoxication:

  1. Special Interest Group - Beer!

  2. An Interprocessor Communications (IPC) signal that should be
     implemented in every O/S kernel. Semantics are left to the
     hardware driver for the Robotic Drinks Server. Expected behavior
     is that kill -beer <pid>

  3. A standing monthly gathering of systems administrators,
     past/present/future, and their ilk in Washington, DC. and other
     worldwide locations. These gathering consists of a friendly
     gathering of people who enjoy tasting/drinking interesting beer
     and chatting about computers, life, and how to implement the
     SIG-beer into their systems. It started with a group of
     dc.sage[9] sysadmins some time in 1997.
