Hi WordWare
Doug "Bones" Harmon here, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
I signed up at the website you mentioned.

If enough interest arises, here are some possibilities I am open to:
I could "run" or "assist" in running a Milwaukee-area LWUG.
I've purchased the Domain Name: MilwaukeeLightwaveUsers.com
(pointing nowhere right now) but if need be, I could set up a web site and forum for this Domain Name.

I have experience setting up sites and forums (not a big deal)
but I thought I would offer.

I don't know how lucky we'd be at finding a computer room
(Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design or UWM? ? ?)
but hey, to kick it off, if we had 5 or 10 guys to start we could
at least get together at my place or someone else's and fire up
the DVD Player to view demo discs and chit chat.

Or a local coffee shop or a tavern/restaurant - whatever.

Anyway - I realize there are many tips in the "how to start a group" thread -
here's to Milwaukee! Anyone?

I would like to be involved if there is any interest,

OK scratch all that - someone just alerted me to this:

Never saw it before.
Bleh - Waukesha is like Pittsburgh - if you go over the wrong
bridge, on a one-way, angle street, dead end, you are forced to live
there, forever ;)

ok I'll see what's up with these guys :)

This is a great idea! Being an big advocate for LWUG's, I'm really happy to see such a cool resource specially for users and groups online!

Look forward to seeing it grow.

I wanted to update you on what is happening with FONT (Friends of NewTek).

First we need everyone who feels this is a great idea and will help the foundation of the LightWave user base to spread the word about FONT, thank you!!

We have started getting interest from people looking for groups to begin setting up new LightWave user groups. It is amazing that this has happened so quickly.

We have also added the third party section to the site, listing some of the many companies that support LightWave. Please send us more information to post on this site. We are also working on a ratting system for these companies... you will be able to provide feedback and rate there products and support ;)

Lastly, thank you for all the ideas, if you do not see them implemented yet, it is not because we did not value them, we have just been very busy :)

Thank you and we will have more to come…
