[ale] [ANNC] ALE-NW @ SPSU MTG. for Thurs., Feb 13, 7:30pm

I just now found out with this announcement email, but Jim is apparently
doing double duty with this presentation.  His "Hands On" shell basics
will be the feature presentation for ALE Central as well on third Thursday,
Feb. 20th.  If weather shuts us down tomorrow you can catch the talk
next week.

in peace,
