i see selection by committee as nice, but possibly slow and unfocused.  so
to keep things moving along, i am offering the following feedback.

any night is good except for Tue
consider my-self a novice with Linux (~2yr experience)
am serious about getting certified, but i don't think it will be easy.

i think you are correct in catering to the more advance members in the
group, and we should keep the material moving at a reasonable clip.

PS.  if there are a large group of newbies we might want to form a group for
them, but lets wait till we have a time and a place to meet.

I would like to see a selection by committee.  I've been asking for
input on this for sometime.  The responses I have received indicated
that meeting every other Wednesday or Thursday night for two hours
was probably the best compromise.  If Mondays are the best night for
meeting at a library, perhaps we need to take another survey.  But
if we can't reach some sort of consensus in the next week or two, 
I may simply choose a time and a place and anyone who is able to join 
me there is welcome.

One of my concerns is that the majority of people who have subscribed 
to this list have described themselves as newbies.  I believe that a
complete newbie is going to find it very difficult to get prepared 
for Linux certification in the next six to eight months unless they
have a lot of time to dedicate to this task.  Therefore, I want the 
pace of this study group to be set by those with more advanced or 
intermediate Linux skills.  I'm also inclined to cater to the needs
and schedules of those who are serious about getting Linux certified
and better prepared to take an exam.  I don't want to discourage 
newbies from participating in this group, but they are not my target
