Mar 26 2009 6:00p - 8:30p

Woo Hoo - our 4th monthly meetup in a row is taking place the last Thursday in March at the home of yummy nachos, good beer, and free WiFi (what more does a creative person need?): Grill 192 near the Melbourne Causeway on (duh) S.R. 192.

Let's really make an effort this month to get our numbers up - let's all commit to bringing a friend or co-worker to really get the Brevard ball rolling.

I'm looking forward to hearing about some of the cool SXSW stuff that Alex attended, and I'll be happy to talk a bit about DrupalCon DC which took place last week.

As I promised at the January meetup, I have made initial contact with DigiDonkey - I'll swing by his office again this week to extend a personal invitation for him to attend the meetup.

We also had a new person from Melbourne sign up this week, Meredith. Check her out in the right-hand sidebar.

Actually, there are 39 members in this group. Where the heck is everyone? Elliot Murphy? Scott Pio (who posted about TED on our message board and never showed his face again)? All of you lurkers, represent! This is our fourth meeting in a row!

Click on these links and bother these people!

I will be attending this month, and I live an hour away!

Wow... Ryan is going all

Wow... Ryan is going all hardcore on us. I love it. It's like we are all Catholics and he is our Priest... the guilt is overwhelming. Even calling people out by name. Sweet!

Sadly, we may have lost a few of our folks during the hey-day of the email assault a few months back. Probably a few folks put us "in the bin".

But that's cool that RP will be there. He brags about being an hour away, but don't let it fool you - he not only talks on the cell phone in his car while driving, he codes Drupal themes at the same time! And why shouldn't he? That's multi-tasking! Ticket that, FHP!

Seriously, I'm trying hard to think of someone to bring. I like that someone is bringing DigiDonkey and I like even more that we are referring to each other by our handles. I think I'll email Ryan and ask him to change my username to something equally cool. Maybe "JackalJedi"... hmmm.. I like it. Do it up, Ryan.

Anyone graphic designers want to do an Avatar for that? Think "Jackal" as in "Carlos the Jackal" (Bruce Willis), but with a lightsaber. I can pay you in beer and yes, you can use it on your #&%@@!! portfolio!

Plus, I won't have hatin' ex-clients leaving threats on these message boards to hunt me down with their Mossbergs. Bonus!

See you all there. I hope I don't have to rent an escort for this. They are so darned expensive and the agency never sends me the one I requested. (Uh, that's a joke - I'm happily married and would happily bring my happy wife, but she said something like "sounds like a total geekfest to me - I'd rather watch the entire NFL season in fast-reverse on the DVR").

Thanks to everyone for

Thanks to everyone for showing up last night. It was pretty cool seeing such a big turnout. Some quick notes:

1. Everyone should go to BarCamp in Orlando - http://www.barcamporlando.org/

2. From now on, anyone named "Mike" drinks for free.

3. Some of us know way too much about board games.

4. Alex still doesn't wear pants.

5. There's at least 2 of us in Brevard who use Drupal.
