7:20  The Forecast is for Clouds - Cloud Computing Demos
        presented by Bill Stearns and Rich Brown

      Perhaps you've heard all the buzz about cloud computing, but
      are still wondering what the heck that is.  Or maybe you'd
      like a pointer on how to get started.  Bill Stearns will demo
      setting up a linux virtual machine 'in the cloud', "quite
      possibly the simplest Linux setup [he's] ever done."

      Rich Brown will demo a cloud monitoring probe his company has
      been working on for gathering statistics for your Amazon Web
      Services deployment.

8:05  Nifties gets your head out of the clouds!

      Open Mic night resumes for for the second half of the meeting.
      The topic is wide open, please think of something you've seen
      in the past three months that's worthy of the appellation,
      "nifty!".  Woe is he who has no nifty.

8:50  Roundtable Exchange - where the attendees can make
         announcements or ask a Linux/FLOSS question of the group.
