[Nelug] Reminder- NELUG meeting: 8.00pm, Durham Rowing club

While I am aware that not many of you will be aware I even exist, and I
certainly do not think enough of myself to run the LUG; I want nothing
more than to see NELUG survive. Therefore I would like to put my name
forward as a candidate to take over running of the website.

I guess I could also handle the mailing list, since it appears to be a
relativly simple job.

Since I am unable to attend meetings myself I am sure this would be
getting more involved than many of you would like to see anyway.

If any more "regulars" want the jobs, feel free.

Hope NELUG can get through this minor glitch.

Please feel free to get in touch.
