(At long last...)
Announcing the May, 1994 MacBSD Dinner night!
When: Saturday, May 21st at 7:15 PM
Where: 4-5-6 Chinese Restaurant in Santa Clara, California
(see directions below)
Who: Any NetBSD/Mac enthusiasts within comfortable travel
distance from Santa Clara. (This depends on whether
you bike or pilot your own aircraft...)
In Attendance: Brad Grantham, the author of "ADB -- it's worse than bamboo
splinters," and (possibly) Lawrence Kesteloot, responsible
for virtual terminals and many bad earwig jokes.
Discussion topics include the contents of the upcoming
full MacBSD release, the future of Net/2-based software,
what to *call* the upcoming MacBSD release ("Alpha3?"
"Beta1?" "1.0?"), the new Duckman show, and why the Alien
Ambassadors on Babylon 5 all have accents even though their
R S V P: Please try and let me know if you plan to join us; I
need quasi-accurate information for reservations.
For more info: Email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 408-248-8439 for
carpool information and more detailed directions.
How to get there:
A) WEST BAY: Take 101 South. At the San Tomas Expwy exit,
take San Tomas Expwy South (Right). Cross over El
Camino Real. The fourth light after El Camino is
Pruneridge; turn left on Pruneridge. Go straight through
the stoplight at Saratoga Ave. About a hundred yards
past the intersection, 4-5-6 and a few other stores are
on your right; turn right and park in the parking lot.
B) EAST BAY: take 880 South. Turn onto the Montague Expwy;
that's the right fork of the Montague Expwy exit.
Follow Montague; as it crosses 101 it will become
the Santomas Expwy; then follow directions as for (A).
C) SANTA CRUZ and points south: Take 17 North. Take 280
to the left (I believe that's the North exit). Take
Saratoga Ave North (Right). After crossing Steven's
Creek Blvd, Pruneridge is the third (or possibly
second) light; turn right on Pruneridge and proceed
as in (A) after crossing Saratoga.
Let me know if this will be inconvenient for you; if I have enough
negative response, I may move the date, location, or cuisine.
(Please, no "Yes, could you please move it to Adelaide, Australia?"
quips, unless creatively worded.)

I think "make love, not war" is probably too extreme. I think the sentiment
might be better phrased, "make grudging tolerance, not war."
