Hello Everyone,

I have decided I'm totally insane...

I don't have enough to do. The wife, five kids, full-time job, and PLUG aren't
keeping me busy enough. Please fill out the company questionnaire form below for
your company. Please respond directly to ryan at ryansimpkins.com. I will sift through
it all and add companies to the web site (http://www.plug.org/companies). If you
don't, I'll have to go get a dog or something.

**Also: We still have the following volunteer positions open. You do _not_ need to
live in Utah to help out on this. Right now we really just need help organizing
portions of the site:

Open Source Employment Specialist (help your fellow Linux Geek get a job).

New Member Coordinator (help a future Linux Geek out by showing the way).

These are not hard jobs, but a couple of people need to step up to fill them. I
believe they would really be beneficial to the group.

That brings up a good question: Can we please shorten "Linux Geek" to "Leek" or, for
the GNU fan boys: "Gleek"? ;-)
