Re: Welcome and let the discussions begin...

Hi all,

I am Indranil Das Gupta from ILUG-Cal .

About ILUG-Cal --

ILUG-Cal was initiated on 13th January, 1999. However, 26th january 1999 -- date of our first meeting, is considered as
our "official" date of formation.

We have a total membership of around 130 members at present. ILUG-Cal is a bit of a misnomer in the sense that it is not
just people from and around Calcutta who are its members, as it has a large number of members joining the LUG from
across the entire state of WB and quite a few members from Guwahati, Aizawl and Imphal.

Our endeavor is on helping the new enthusiastic users so that they don't get turned off Linux when they find the going

Our meetings are held on the first Sunday of every month at St. Xaviers College.

Meeting attendence ~20.

We are having our mailing lists and website at www.ilug-cal.org (badly needs updating) is sponsered-hosted in Canada,
courtesy Sudhir Gandotra (Netshooter, Delhi) and Russell McOrmand (Flora.org, Ottawa/Canada).

About myself --

I started using Linux out of curiosity around 1996 with the first PCQ Linux CD. Incidentally, a copy of Walnut Creek
Slackware distro was *the* first s/w that I actually paid and bought at list price... if you know what I mean :)

warm regards,
