  • Longhorn Meetup next week

    The numbers on the Longhorn Meetup Members page give the impression that somewhere (India especially) people are actually "meeting up". In my area we have only had one official LH MeetUp, and that one was even coordinated by IM because the votes were not placed in time. But I am excited to learn that...
