Thanks for explaining to new members how this works. Let me add that
Garret, Jordan and I usually show up at these weekly beer and burger
meetings and that discussions about the time and place are definitely
on topic. Some discussion apparently happens on IRC, personally I
don't have the attention span to participate in #chipy so I'll add my
.02 on this list. Anyone else should feel free to do the same. One or
more meetings could occur as a result and as far as I'm concerned
that's perfectly fine.
