Apparently our power is about 1.5 volts at 7 milliamps.

For March:
- Guesstimate how many people will be showing up. Adobe will pre-print a bunch
of "PLUG Visitor" badges. The thinking here is that they want people clearly
"marked" as a visitor so they know who to shoot. The bright red badge doubles
as a target.

For future meetings:
- They will have a sign up sheet that basically says "I promise I will not
wander around the building stealing things" across the top. The purpose is to
provide some sort of proof that real people actually showed up (demi-gods like
sjansen excluded). To make a long story short - no tracking means no money.
- They will have a bouncer at the door to let you in, take a DNA sample, and
brand the Adobe logo on your forehead.

If you like it, be patient. Good things come to those who wait. If you don't
like it, please be very noisy and recommend an alternate location.


PS - In other news, Adobe has donated a new server to PLUG. It will be a major
upgrade. More on this later.
