I think so, having come from Edinburgh's EdLUG which is far less formal
(but less fun as a result), I like the fact that scotlug has a good mix of
real linux/foss stuff and laffs as opposed to just an excuse for a pi$$

I've not attended enough meetings to say aye to this one yet.

Hmm, that's a toughie. Anything groovy,  usable, practical. Nothing
boring, like math related stuff!

I think it's fine the way it seems to be, but i'm open for alternatives.

I felt very welcome at my first meeting last week, so thanks everyone! I
think that's very important. I can't think of anything that  needs to be
done right now.

I like the fact that you also have a very active irc community. I would
like to see CGI::Irc working again (or something similar), because it's my
only way onto IRC between the hours of Mon-Fri 9am-7pm
