I got a few web cams around, so we could still attend virtually. Only 
thing thats missing is the cheap beer and lack of patch cables hehehe.

Well its worth a try I suppose, even if the people that cant make it can 
just attend the IRC channel and someone in the group can act as a node 
to the group.

Worth a try...

Other than that it would be nice to see some new software reviews at the 
meeting. Or even hardware, etc. But I still think a better way to allow 
people to get info and help would be to have a forum.

Lots of people cant leave a pc running all day to see whats been said on 
IRC, and atleast its easyer to access tons of information.

Areas in for forums could be:

Disto's, Meetings, Announcements, Games, Hardware, Software, Noob chat etc.
