I just signed up to lurk -- I'm up to my ears (possibly in over my
head) on website matters -- but I'll offer a couple of comments

I think the list was just things that people wanted to hear presentations
on. I don't have that list, but IIRC a first order approximation was

I think you _should_ periodically troll for suggestions and volunteers.
Maybe we can do something on website eventually to poll for topics, but
don't expect that soon.

You need to ask her (AFAIK, she's not on this list). If you get jammed
without a topic a week or so before the meeting, consider organizing a
panel. Maybe "sysadmin/Linux at work" -- see if you can get Carl Cravens
to show up, Ryan Hunt, Tom Wallis, etc.

Another cheap presentation idea would be to get folks to write down 2-5
questions each, then round up the usual panel of experts and spend 5-10
minutes each on 10-15 selected questions.

I'll miss the April meeting (out of town); maybe we can do something on
the new aclug website for May or June.
