Do we want to plan a meeting sometime end of this month? Pick a restaurant or something, and have a bunch of local Zaurus users get together?
offroadgeek
how about wed feb 25th? I'll look for a restaurant that was or is near wifi as a plus.

That sounds good, and the wifi part is an excellent idea. Having open wireless nearby should probably only eliminate about 1% of restaurant locations in the sf area smile.gif
offroadgeek
OK... so after doing a quick search, I found an actual restaurant that offers free wifi. So we can sit and eat, talk and surf, etc.

We have about 16 members in the SF ZUG, so let's see if we can get a good turn out. If you plan on attending the group meeting, please post a note here. I will be making table reservations, so I want to make sure we have enough space for all. The location is good, easy access via public transportation, easy parking if you're driving, etc.

Here are the details:
[list]Wednesday, February 25th @ 7pm
Venture Frogs Restaurant
1000 Van Ness, at O'Farrell
here's a link to their site[list]

Yes, I'm planning on attending. Hope we get a good turnout among those of us from the Bay Area.

Mmmmmm! Goooooodies.

Doh! Doh! Doh! I can't make it :-(

I was hoping to drum up some interest in my audio cd database application that I had on the go (carry a searchable database on the Z). Oh well, maybe next time.

Is this still happening? Please respond here if its on, and who is going.

Thanks....
offroadgeek
Yes, it's still happening. I received one email offline from Steven saying that he would be going... so it looks like there are only 3 confirmed so far.

Hi all,

The Steven that emailed offlist is me (in case there's a mixup with any other Steven's out there). =)

Lookin' forward to meetin' up!

I can not tell for sure if I will make it. Will see...

But just in case, how do I recognize you guys in the restaurant (maybe the table loaded with Z's)?

I'm going to have a big sign at the table saying "geek fest" and a bunch of balloons... just kidding.

If the restaurant has a host/hostess, then just ask for the zaurus group, otherwise just look around for the table with a few zaurus' on it.. I'll at least have my 5500 and 760 with me.

oh yeah.. the reservation is under "Michael"

Is the meeting still planned for 7pm? I will try to make it after the RSA conference.

Yes, still the same as I posted above. I've reserved a table of 5, but I can increase that at any point. I better start gathering up my goodies... maybe I'll make a run to Frye's before the meeting. wink.gif

Well the weather today kinda sucks, but I'm hoping that by later today the thunderstorms and wind will die down, and it will just be rain.

So the question for everyone is... do we:

(a) continue as scheduled and meet at 7pm at Venture Frogs
or
(cool.gif postpone the meeting until next week (hoping for better weather)

I would vote for keeping the meeting tonight, but I'll leave it up to majority.
ulf1
I would favour today.

Hi,
For me, Id like to reschedule to next week. Perhaps lets see if the weather improves say by 4pm?, and then reach a final decision. If it persists like now, its very rough out there.
steven999
The weather is pretty bad, but I'd still like to meet today. (Not as big a deal for me as it's on my way home!) =)
merciless
I would prefer today, since I happen to be in the city today, so that makes it convenient for me.

Ok,
Assuming we are on for today then? Weather has improved somewhat which is nice. See everyone at 7pm
offroadgeek
Yep! The weather has gotten much better... see everyone at 7pm

Hi,

Hi guys,

was nice meeting you all. I hope we can do that more frequently.

thanks, Ulf
merciless
I had a good time also. It was nice to meet you all, and to see the cool stuff. Now I know not to get the camera, but get the IR keyboard. A 760 is now high on my wish list.
