7:15  Introductory remarks

7:20  Nifties de Mayo!

       It's Audience Participation Night at DLSLUG - time for you to
       get up and do something. We'll each take a turn at the lectern,
       showing something 'neat' or Nifty. It doesn't matter if it takes
       2 minutes or 20 minutes to explain, just get up there and show
       us something. We all know something Nifty that's worth showing.

       We'll have a linux laptop to use, or connect remotely to your own.
       The meeting will run until we run out of Nifties, or we run out
       of time.

       It can be anything from a utility you just discovered to a Nifty
       piece of hardware we should know about to a worthwhile service
       on the 'net or maybe something you wrote that saves you hours
       of time. If you're new to Linux that doesn't matter - there must
       be something Nifty about it that got you interested - what is
       that?  Linux is about sharing, and this month it's your turn.

       OK, yes, technically this means our speaker cancelled.  It's all
       good, prepare for an extra-varied brain dump and be prepared to
       learn about all kinds of things. Previous Nifty!'s have run
       the gamut and inspired many an, "intriguing," from the audience.

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