The only problem with accepting a donation like this is that I have no
real idea what we could do with it. The only resource which the ILUG
makes regular use of is my machine, "lugh", which hosts the mailing
lists and web site. It could be beefed up (and I'd welcome the money to
do so), but it's at less than 50% capacity as things stand - unless we
get a dramatic increase in load, it doesn't really need it.
Alternatively, we could put it towards organising a conference or
something later in the year, or next year. Ordinary F2Fs don't need
money behind them, though; it'd have to be something more substantial.

If swimming is so good for your figure, how do you explain whales?
