All right folks, the post is now up on our page:
http://pugs.postgresql.org/torontopug

Please start passing out this URL, and let's get this group started!
Let me know if you see anything I missed in the post.

Again, if either of you want to have posts on the TorontoPUG site,
send me your account id on the PUG site, and I can add your posts to
the page.

Just in case there's overlap, I'll be adding this event to Facebook,
TorCamp, and the Toronto Ruby Sites.
