On this note, I'll make a big announcement for Open Source database
enthusiasts - MySQL and Postgresql alike.  For some time I've wanted to
start a Utah MySQL User Group.  I've heard others express interest in
such a group also.  I've seen more MySQL questions each year in UPHPU,
and I think we have enough interest to grow a Utah Open Source Database
community.  Let Utah show a higher level of support for Open Source
databases as it has for so many other Open Source products.  Tom
Welche's (sp?) inspiring presentation on building Open Source
communities motivated me to, as Picard would say, "make it so".  I've
registered these domains:


The umysqlug.org domain currently redirects to uosdb.org.  I'll put up
mail lists and add features later.  Perhaps some of you who go to next
Thursday's meeting will stay after and help me plan the site, or maybe
we can make it a meeting in itself.  Post your thoughts or comments on
the site, or comment in this thread.  Who would like to be a postgres
champion,or a MySQL champion?  Now's your chance.
