[PyAR2] First Meeting

It doesn't really have several rooms, but I know the Maumelle public Library
has wifi and a rather large meeting room. I don't know if that's any more
central, though...

Maybe one of you GIS folks with the know-how could write up a program where
everyone that wants to puts in their physical location, and it averages it
out and gives the most central location ;)

eh? :-D

I've already put in my 2 cents about the logo bit, what with the submissions
& voting & what-not.

As far as hosting, I know of *a* resource - www.freehostia.com I think it
is. A decent option if you're not planning on using too much bandwidth.

To be considered stupid and to be told so is more painful than being called
gluttonous, mendacious, violent, lascivious, lazy, cowardly: every weakness,
every vice, has found its defenders, its rhetoric, its ennoblement and
exaltation, but stupidity hasn't. - Primo Levi
