the technology and explain how it works.

Finally, Michael Rabb (email@example.com),

an ISDN consumer trial, will explain the
user's viewpoint. The RMIUG Committee extends
special thanks to Mr. Rabb for his assistance
in organizing this meeting.
The meeting is Tuesday, September 10,

pm start for informal networking and refreshments).
The meeting will be held at the Department
of Commerce (NIST) Building at 325 Broadway
in Boulder, one traffic light South of Baseline.
This facility holds 510 people. Park in
the Dept. of Commerce lot, go in the main
door (faces East), and find the main auditorium
just to the right of the main entrance.
The meeting is free and open to the public,
but we will be passing the hat to defray
the room rental charge we incur.

ISP's: RMIUG will hold another "ISP-fest"
on Tuesday, November 12th. We plan to have
a similar meeting as last year - pls see:
The biggest challenge we face for this
meeting is lining up the panel members ...
especially with the explosion of ISP's;
you can fully appreciate that it would be
impossible to have every ISP in Colorado
presenting ... and there are other commercial
venues for this.
We don't advertise or envision this meeting
as one where all ISP's are there ... but
rather an opportunity for RMIUG members
to get a taste of what is out there.
So ... if you are interested in attending,
pls Email "email@example.com" We hope
to settle on our panel by our September
10th meeting. Although not required, it
would be nice if each ISP would contribute
$50 to defray costs of the room rental and
copy costs (we will have handouts with "Tom's
ISP List" attached).
As always, we appreciate suggestions/comments
for this meeting.
