As part of taking part in starting up a new SharePoint User Group I finally was able to get the site up and running.

Funny and ironic as it might seem Shannon and I decided to go with the "eat your own dog food" approach and create the site with WSS 3.0. Furthermore our efforts were also expedited by using the Community Kit for SharePoint's User Group site template.

Now don't just assume that since it is up that it will not change. There will be quite a few additions to the site in the coming days that we just haven't had time to get done yet, but soon enough we will add some cool web parts and more visual changes to the site. The rush to get the site up was due in part to the first meeting that is coming up on September 2nd.

If you are local and would like to participate in the Group or if you just want to see the site you can find it at:

A big thanks needs to go out to Lawrence Liu and the rest of the CKS developers for the hard work they are doing on creating the SharePoint templates and add-ons that make getting things done with SharePoint much faster.

Unfortunately we were trying to update the server and did an IIS Reset and it decided to never come back. :<

It should be backup but the relay doesn't seem to be working as it was before the IIS Metabase corruption, so you should be able to find the site at the extended url:

Thanks for getting in touch.
