It would be every other month - only as a South Bay alternative to 
Oakland, and still as a satellite of SFPUG.  I am sure we can find 
alternate venues - HP? SUN? INTEL? AMD? - and we would need to make a 
firm commitment for people to add it to their calendar (at least at the 
level there is for the other meetings). 

Any other takers in the South Bay? 

It may simply be that there is more application interest North of here 
and less interest from the local platform community.

And personally I'm only trying to find a way to attend more PostgreSQL 
oriented meetings :-)
