We are open to all comers.  Almost all existing members are not
University students.

You are welcome to come along for while without joining to see if it
suits you.

Talks happen irregularly.  They are generally given by members when they
get fired up about some topic.

Humbug is more of a social group of people who enjoy playing with
computers for fun.  We bring along our computers to meetings, explore
open source, discuss new technologies, write programs, ask others to
show us new things, group together to run conferences - in other words
do useful things with computers and open source.

As part of that fun every meeting we go to restaurant for dinner and
drinks at around 6PM, then resume the meeting afterwards.
