OCLUG Meeting Coordination: Well, the first one (February) didn't go so well. The projector didn't take the right input, but the speakers did really well keeping the audience entertained nonetheless.

For the next meeting, Robert Love (Ximian/SuSE/Novell) was flown in from Florida. That went much more smooth than the previous meeting, and we now have a more stable projector source (with multiple backup plans, if needed). We had a good number of people show up for this which was great. There is also a good number of people lined up to speak in the coming months, and meetings are booked up until July (which is the month OCLUG usually holds Linux in the Wild, to get outdoors and get some fresh air).

OCLUG Board Elections: A bit of a fiasco right now on the oclug-board mailing list, but at least most of the people complaining are putting their candidacy where their mouth is running for the new board. It should be a fun election. I'm a little nervous - public speaking always freaks me out until the second after I begin talking. It's only a 2 minute speech, though, so it shouldn't be too bad.
