he exact same method as you for getting involved with the group.</div><div>=
<br></div><div>It&#39;s rather interesting that if you visit the <a href=3D=
""></a> site and you manage to find ModLab u=
nder Community, the page lacks the following:</div>

<div><br></div><div>1) No future dates listed</div><div>2) Location not sho=
wn</div><div>3) Lab Mailing list is mentioned but no link or address for th=
at.</div><div><br></div><div>If you click through on the Ottawa Hacker Soci=
ety link, you get a page on another site (which links back to the initial p=

<div><br></div><div>The 2nd page doesn&#39;t have the information either.</=
div><div><br></div><div>You need to click on the ArtEngine link which gives=
 a page (outside the ArtEngine site) that shows the address. This part also=
 shows how to get to ArtEngine. Because it doesn&#39;t mention ModLab, it&#=
39;s not clear if it&#39;s the right address for ModLab.=A0</div>

<div><br></div><div>You need to click on Communications to find a link to t=
he mailing list. There&#39;s a link on the Communications page called Meeti=
ngs. That gives a list of old dates.=A0</div><div><br></div><div>So the obv=
ious thing to do is:</div>

<div><br></div><div>1) Visit</div><div>2) Hover all the links =
until you find ModLab under Community</div><div>3) Click through to Ottawa =
Hacker Society (you have to forget that you&#39;re looking for modlab for a=

<div>4) Click &quot;group of individuals&quot; to see if it has location, t=
ime and date for modlab (or perhaps Ottawa Hacker Society)</div><div>5) Cli=
ck Meetings to see if the information is there. It isn&#39;t. However there=
 is a convenient link back to step 2.</div>

<div>6) Click ArtEngine to see if the information is there. It isn&#39;t. T=
here is the address of ArtEngine (at this point, the newcomer isn&#39;t sur=
e if this is the same as ModLab or Ottawa Hacker Society).</div><div>7) Cli=
ck Communication to see if the information is in there. It isn&#39;t. But t=
here is a convenient link to step 5.</div>

<div>8) The lower part of the page has a link back to step 2 and a link bac=
k to step step 5 (again).</div><div>9) Click the Projects link to see if th=
e information is there. It isn&#39;t. But there is potential to see project=
s there one day.=A0</div>

<div>10) The only unfollowed link is the one mailing list link on the Commu=
nication page (we saw that in step 7)</div><div>11) Follow that link and yo=
u are now at a mailman listserv page. If you can figure that out, you can s=
ubscribe to the mail list for either ArtEngine, ModLab or Ottawa Hacker Soc=
iety (at this point the newcomer isn&#39;t sure)</div>

<div>12) For those who have figured out mailman (or already know it), if th=
ey are approved after a waiting period they are now in the list and will re=
ceive content.</div><div>13) They can either reply of a post or (if they kn=
ow how to use mailman make a direct post) to find out the location, time an=
d date of the next meeting.</div>

<div>14) Someone will likely reply.</div><div><br></div><div>
If you are still with us, you are now qualified to attend ModLab!</div><div=
><br></div><div>We use the listserv and word of mouth to schedule/reschedul=
e meetings but I&#39;ve often wondered what would happen to the group if th=
e location, time and date were listed on the ModLab page in step 2 above.=
