an old saw. As a part time student in the computer science program at UB, I
am aware that UB has a LUG (for students only) and the infrastructure to
support it. I also know many member in this NFLUG know UB (or ex UB
students) students. Some of them post to NFLUG from time to time.

know what UB's overall attitude would be toward a non - profit computer club
using their facilities, but I would imagine that UB's LUG could be an ally
