NOTE: NCLUG has been re-scheduled to the second Tuesday of the month for at
least the next several months.

   Dinner: China Wok, By the Safeway on Harmony, 7pm
   Meeting: space at Re/Max, 4703 Boardwalk (by Sam's), 8pm

This Tuesday from 8pm to 11pm we will be having another installment of the
Hacking Society.  At 7pm we'll be gathering at a restaurant for dinner,
then heading over to the normal place at 8pm for the main event.

We will be meeting for dinner at 7pm at China Wok.  China Wok is located on
Harmony by the Safeway, about a mile east of the main meeting location.
They don't have much seating there, so we'll order food to go and take it
back to the meeting space to feast.

The goal of the Hacking Society is to foster geek community-building
through the shared experience of hacking. Of course, by "hacking",
I mean the more historic meaning of working on interesting projects
(Jargon File "hack" entry, sense 6). Not the "script kiddies trying to
compromise boxes" meaning which has become what most people think of in
relation to the term.

It's meant to be a sacred place full of positive hacking energy, if you
will.  Hacking by osmosis...

Hacking Society is primarily meant for you to come and work on your own
projects, as opposed to soliciting others to solve your problems (which is
usually more what goes on at an Install Fest or at the main NCLUG
