Inland Empire Solaris Users?

I've been wondering how many other OpenSolaris users there are out there in the Inland Empire. I recently met one close to me, which surprised me quite a bit. I figured I was the only one within at least a 30 mile radius.

If there are others of you out there, please drop me a line. I'd like to inquire as to whether it makes sense to consider starting a User's Group for the area. Possibly we could join up with any other User Groups for Southern California.

For the record I live in southwest Riverside county, not far from Temecula and Murrieta. (For those of you not familiar with the west coast, the Inland Empire refers to a large region of southern California that is separated from the coastal areas of Orange and Los Angeles counties by a range of coastal mountains. I often have joked that I'm about 65 miles from any natural technology center, but now I'm not so sure. And I think a lot of people who commute to places like San Diego and LA live out here.)

I have occasionally been seen in the area visiting family in Hemet, as has Stuart down the hall - if you get this going let us know and maybe one of us can stop in when we're in the neighborhood. (And of course, there's always the Solaris x86 team in Los Angeles you might be able to convince to send someone over for a presentation once in a while.)

That's good information, thanks Alan. (Btw, let me know when you're coming in to town... we can meet for drinks or maybe I can fire up the grill. :-)
