~~~~~~~~Procedures required for attending meetings at IBM~~~~~~~~~~~

IBM has asked us to implement these security measures for our
meetings.  In particular, it will be necessary to email us your
name in advance if you plan to attend, so that we can give them
a list of the people who will be attending.  It will also be
necessary to bring photo ID in order to get in to the meeting.
We regret the need for these measures.   Please send email listing your

"June 2002 GNUbies" (note this is a "plus" not the letter "t").
Sorry for the inconvenience.

People have requested that their names be kept on a cumulative list of
those who attend our meetings so that they will still be able to attend
if they don't get a chance to respond some month.  We started a cumulative
list last month and henceforth will assume, unless you indicate otherwise,
that when you submit your name you would like it to be added to this
cumulative list as well as the list for the current meeting.

If you would like to help with GNUbies in any way, please email me or let
me know at a meeting. Offers to help are greatly appreciated.
