I am a staff member at UNC. I administer a Linux/Sun network for a 
research lab. I have been a *nix admin for 6 years and find that I am 
still learning new things and that there is plenty of room to grow. I 
think having a group where we can share ideas will be profitable to all 
and perhaps we can all learn something that will improve our own 
environment. Also for those that live toward Greensboro, this would be 
much more convenient than trying to travel to NC State for a meeting.
