I still need to make contact to get it onto the lug listing on the LA
site, and we still need to inquire about insurance.

I think the whole LUG exchange idea is great. Gets different POVs into
the mix and encourages idea sharing.

http://murlug.org is done with Drupal and partially integrated phpBB (if
you login via drupal, it logs you into the board). I set that up last
week, so there's not a whole deal of content there at the moment. It
replaced a static site similar to the current clug.org.au one.
