it's not a complaint, it's just a fact. i think the ilug is a great
resource for linux users to have. likewise i think new people can bring
new ideas. so adding a new way for people to notice ilug might help
as for places ilug is listed, i don't read linux magazines much.
personally i think typing "ireland linux" into google probably nets
us a hit or two, but then again a lot of people don't do that either.
bumper stickers seem like a cheap way to reach a lot eyeballs (pardon
my lapse into ad-speak).

anyway if i see enough interest (and if people are interested just drop
me a line privately), i'll go look into some sort of design and then
getting them printed. if people have seen linux user group stickers
before that they liked/disliked i'd also take pointers on the design.
