Welcome to the Lug.

If your in wolves possibly the best way to get the info you need is to
ask here on the list.  For more indepth or involved questions if you can
make it to the meeting that is probably best for those instances.

If you're coming to a meeting and you have an issue with a laptop bring
it with you and we might be able to resolve it there and then for you.
