A Couple of Notes regarding this month’s meeting:
First, a reminder that we moved our regular ALE Central meeting
dates to the THIRD Thursday of each month starting in 2008 to

ALE Central Meeting will include:
— Laudable Linux Tricks and Amazing Apps
— Baffle the Brain Trust
— Celebrating the Server and ALE Admin Volunteers
— The Emacs vs VIM Cage Match and/or Juggling Exhibition
…featuring informative presentation and entertaining participation
from everyone interested in contributing their talents.
— Laudable Linux Tricks and Amazing Apps: A chance to

— Baffle the Brain Trust: A casual forum for querying the
group’s knowledge base about any aspects of Linux that you

to request topics for future meeting presentations.
— Celebrating the New Server and ALE Admin Volunteers:
Light refreshments will be provided to toast the revival of
ALE’s web presence and appreciate all the folks who
continually donate the time and resources that keep on
keeping us together (in a totally anarchist kind of way).
— The Emacs vs VIM Cage Match and/or Juggling Exhibition:
If things go according to plan, Charles Shapiro will be bringing
clubs. The choice of which activities they will used for will be
up to him.
— Every GNU Guru participating in this ALE meeting will
