My experience with #scotlug is that it is one of the channels you will 
actually get a response to your problem. Many other channels I joined, 
people were less than helpful, to say the very least.

As Dan suggested, it is not just Glasgow centric, we have members from 
all over the UK, US and yes, a Russian.. (Not to mention some other folk 
that keep a low profile)
