Attending my first LUG meeting, I went solo. I’m not exactly the most outgoing type of person but thankfully all the LUGOLA members at the time were extremely friendly and welcomed me with open arms. But as I get older and work from home more and more, I find myself becoming increasingly socially awkward. I can’t imagine how I’d survive a first time meeting in my current state, or even find the will to even go. I’d probably want to drag along my wife so I’d have someone to talk to.

I really don’t have much else to say about the strip. I could go on and on about how LUG lurkers shouldn’t be shy, they should attend a meeting, we’ll all welcome you with open arms, blah blah blah, but all I’d be doing at that point is preaching, and that’s the last thing I want to do. If you want to attend a meeting, great! If not, we’ll be around next month.

About the comic name: yes, it’s still called Studs for another week. We decided on a name but we’re having some issues that haven’t been resolved yet. We’ll keep you posted.
