So I was watching an episode of BSDnow and somebody wrote in asking about a BSD user groups in southeast Tennessee. While I was disappointed with the answer, I was quite pleased to learn that the host Kris Moore is from the Knoxville area. I couldn't resist the opportunity to offer my support, so I wrote in to the show and offered my help. I was ecstatic to find BSDnow reading my email! I also found out that Kris Moore wasn't the only PCBSD/FreeBSD developer in the area as iXsystems apparently has a Tennessee Office. I decided to help things along to make a Knoxville BUG a reality.
