AUUG Honors Lindsay Cleveland
The long-time orgainzer of the Atlanta Unix Users' Group, Lindsay Cleveland was given a standing ovation of appreciation at the August 1, 2011 meeting. Lindsay has taken early retirement from Cisco as of last month. He and his wife are looking at moving to east Texas in the near future. Since the 1st Monday of the month falls on Labor Day in September, this was the last meeting that Lindsay was guaranteed to be attending.
