For what it’s worth, the group has not gone inactive; we are just not always super-good about updating the web site. :) To make sure you catch everything that happens, please join up on the Yahoo mailing list (check the “interacting with PAGDIG” link on the menu to the right).

December Meeting

This meeting will be more of a presentation format than a social meeting, though I’m sure there’ll be plenty of that too!

From Corwin:

Sounds like we’re on for December 8th, and that the Spotlight Mobile office (my office) is the way to go. That said, here are some directions/instructions:

17 SE 3rd Avenue #501
Portland, OR

It’s the brown brick “Towne Storage” building. There’s a security system and alarm and things, so please try to get here roughly on time so I can make one trip instead of 12. :) The door is on the east side of the building- come to that point and dial the number for
Spotlight Mobile, or call me at:

503-866-8237

and I’ll buzz you in/come grab you.

I’ll bring some pizza and drinks and the projector, and people are welcome to bring whatever else they want.

See you then!
