Well, after about 18 months of missing each other in random places across the planet I finally met up with Jim Gleason (the president of the NYLUG) at a meet last night.
I have to say they’re a reasonably well organised bunch, and definately very friendly. After a great talk by Todd Lewis about Hank (an IDS he wrote which is in need of users and / or love) we adjourned to a local TGI Friday’s for the NYLUG traditional Standtisch.
Had a great conversation with Todd’s wife (I’m sorry I can’t remember your name !) of only about two months … so Congratulations guys ! It’s really affirming to see a young couple that are so obviously right for each other !
I’ve also got to say thanks to Aaron … who gave me a lift back to the hotel – despite it being a very poor night for driving, and the tunnel being blocked, and Jersey City being in almost the opposite direction. Thank you !
New York does seem to be a friendly city – certainly the NYLUG are doing their bit to make people feel welcome.
