Subject: Mention USENIX '06 at NWCLUG meeting 5/2/06
Date: Tue, 2 May 2006 15:23:46 -0700 Hi Mike:

I hope this email gets to you in time.

USENIX is holding it's annual technical conference (USENIX '06) in Boston this year: May 30 - June 2. Can you please mention it at the next meeting?  People should register before the May 12 early bird registration deadline for the best pricing: there's also an additional discount for five or more people registering together ($100 off per person.)

See the text-based conference announcement below (Question: is it appropriate to post this to the group?): there's also a pdf flyer you can print out at

I've also got full-color glossy flyers I can send out: let me know how many of those you can use and I'll ship them out.

Or let me know if I'm being harassing.

Many thanks, -Peter
