Some of us had the chance to visit Oly's space; nice!

For those out of the loop, this is a lab room in downtown Lincoln.

What topic would we like for a "structured" meeting there?  Could we find a
topic that allowed for, say, one hour of meeting followed by "lab" time,
during which those without a big interest in the topic could wander down to
Yiayia's for refreshments?  For example, how about an hour of presentation
on NAT/firewall/port forwarding followed by a hands-on setup of a machine
for those interested?

For those in Omaha, would it be worth the trip?
