Is there a Local User Group (LUG) for Porteus lovers?

Being able to find Porteus users- PLUG, or Linux users of any species in my area would be awesome.

Having a local contact list would be great, but coordinating a gathering physically is beyond my capability.

I guess that is why God created forums.

I do not see very many forum members exposing their location, possibly because of privacy and security concerns. That is cool and totally understandable.

I will just have to keep my eye out for events started by people more dedicated than I.

This forum is great. Thanks.

If I lived in your area I would like to join but I live 1000+ miles from you.
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.
