Well the ILUG mailing list was started on November 25th 1997 on skynet by
me, just went back through my old sent-mails (I always knew they'ed be
handy for someat) ....
This was after a defacto mailing list of about 10-15 ppl had appeared and
we realised we needed something more ... this list came from Richard
Rowe's posting to COLA asking about interest in an Irish LUG,
The website was brought on line as ilug.csn.ul.ie soon afterwards in
December, and the www.linux.ie registration happened in June/July 1998,
with the move to Indigo (when???) in the last while ...
