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?
Feb 12 2004, 05:23 PM
how about wed feb 25th? I'll look for a restaurant that was or is near wifi as a plus.
Feb 13 2004, 08:08 AM
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
Feb 13 2004, 12:32 PM
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
Feb 18 2004, 12:45 AM
Yes, I'm planning on attending. Hope we get a good turnout among those of us from the Bay Area.
Feb 18 2004, 07:11 PM
btw - for anyone else who is planning on attending this meeting, I will be bringing some freebies/goodies with me

I will be bringing some freebies/goodies with me
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.
Feb 23 2004, 01:09 PM
Is this still happening? Please respond here if its on, and who is going.
Feb 23 2004, 02:17 PM
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.
Feb 23 2004, 03:14 PM
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!
Feb 23 2004, 04:42 PM
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)?
Feb 23 2004, 04:49 PM
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"
Feb 23 2004, 06:07 PM
Is the meeting still planned for 7pm? I will try to make it after the RSA conference.
Feb 23 2004, 07:19 PM
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.
Feb 25 2004, 09:27 AM
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
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.
Feb 25 2004, 09:32 AM
I would favour today.
Feb 25 2004, 10:11 AM
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.
Feb 25 2004, 10:40 AM
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!) =)
Feb 25 2004, 11:40 AM
I would prefer today, since I happen to be in the city today, so that makes it convenient for me.
Feb 25 2004, 03:47 PM
Assuming we are on for today then? Weather has improved somewhat which is nice. See everyone at 7pm
Feb 25 2004, 04:14 PM
Yep! The weather has gotten much better... see everyone at 7pm
Feb 25 2004, 11:15 PM
Enjoyed meeting everyone tonight! Looking forward to next time!
Feb 25 2004, 11:36 PM
Same here, it was nice to meet everyone!
Feb 26 2004, 11:02 AM
Was nice to put a face to the names here. Enjoyed meeting with everyone. Thanks for organizing this.
Feb 26 2004, 11:02 AM
was nice meeting you all. I hope we can do that more frequently.
Feb 26 2004, 07:39 PM
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.
