Years ago there was a unix group affiliated with Uniforum that died
when the parent organization went out of business and the bank "lost"
the account (fortunately not before some funds were sent to help start
the Chebucto Community Net.).  There was less motivation for regular
meetings while people were playing with the brand new internet.

It takes a critical mass of interested people to be able to hold
regular meetings and the linux/open source community in NS hasn't been
quite large enough, but it seems to be growing, so maybe it is time to
think about regular events.
