I'm sorry to hear that you will be so busy.   I was wondering if the planned meetups could be put into the calendar.  The calendar is really easy export to outlook, google or yahoo.  And once on my personal calendar, i keep it sync'd with my smart phone.   I really don't want to miss anymore meetings than I have to,  and this would help a lot.

Whether you blame it on Easter weekend, or the fact I have to work at least the next two Sat. mornings, I am sorry to confirm there will be no meeting this month.

Tomas has offered, and I think we should accept, to meet at his place of business next time. That would move the meeting location about 8 minutes East, straight down LBJ to Forest/LBJ (use the Greenville exit). Full directions will be posted. There are plenty of places to eat lunch around there, so we would have to drop the food-during-meeting perk we had at the restaurant. But we would gain a quiet, projector screen, conference room to meet in.

A story from work: We upgraded our Open Source ORM (known as DBIx) last month. We immediately found a small impact feature no longer worked. Hopped on IRC and reported the bug, they said "sure enough - its broke" and that a fix would be in the maintenance release in about 4 days. Then the author of the patch sent it to us in 2 hours! Everything worked and everybody benefited. Needless to say, her Amazon wish list got a few items shorter. :)

Anyone dealt with a commercial software provider that would provide that level of service, even with a "Platinum Level" support agreement? Let me find our company login info for their ticket system...

So get out and enjoy the Spring weather! Or donate your time by helping your favorite open source project (everybody can always use more good documentation...). Or setup to donate $4/mo to them. Either way. ;)

Cheers!
John Fields
