I don't agree with you there Dave.

I think it's very important to ensure that people are aware of the
group, The group brings varying levels of expertise and experience
that can help with most thing Linux, and if no-one here knows the

Whilst I think your actions are commendable, and would hate to see you
stop, if you gave the people at your meetings a piece of paper that
covered the points of contact for WiltsLUG, they'd have somewhere to
turn to if things aren't working. I think that sense of community is
important if new users are to gain confidence in using their new found

I've started the graphics thread, with a view to making small A5
leaflets, and possibly business cards that all of us can give to other
