I also received an e-mail from him this morning, in my capacity as
list admin for the Triangle Linux Users Group.  Our list is
subscriber only, too  I haven't responded yet because a) it's been a busy
day at work and b) our full steering committee generally discusses
things like this between ourselves before doing anything.

I appreciate hearing from other LUGs as to what they've done.  I agree
that his e-mail was very considerate and pleasant and we will almost
certainly do the same thing Rick has done.

Cheers,
