[Herts] Herts LUG Meeting Wednesday 14th March.

I've not made it to a meeting for a while, hope to make this one! I
could talk about VMWare, as I keep promising to.... :(

I second the suggestion of having a wiki and would be happy to assist
in setting one up (perhaps MediaWiki, the software which powers
Wikipedia). The trick with a wiki these days is to ensure you have
some reasonable protection against automated spam attacks where your
carefully crafted content is replaced by Viagra adverts!

As for a logo, apparently the hedgehog is county symbol for
Hertfordshire (google for it!) perhaps a hedgehog wearing a "Tux"
T-shirt? Is there an artist in the room?
