It cannot be sheer coincidence but I passed the same car twice today .... A green VW Jetta VR6 with licence plate "MAC OS.." <- for privacy reasons I left out 2 of the digits. I hope it is one of you MR Northern VA folks.... I tried to catch your attention. Anyway .... was just good to see fellow minded folks on the road.

Same here. not me. Maybe it is time for a get together of MR members in the NOVA/DC/MD area?
That would be fantastic .... especially since I will be moving to Houston in a couple of months. Nice to have faced with the names. Maybe end of March?

Sounds like a project to me .... Does anyone know how to tilt this subject into a photoshop contest for a MR sticker design? I guess Arn needs to aprove it or so... Stickers are cheap to make and can ask people to preorder so we don't have out of pocket expenses .... mail this sticker is only $.37 - $.80 (international). We can do this for less than $2!

The sticker idea is great! We should have some code beep or wave. It sounds silly, but think about it.... Someone you've never seen before passes you on the highway beeping and waving and you think "Who the F is this jerk?!", until they pass you and you see the sticker on the bumper. By that time it is too late to wave back.
By the way, maybe that green Jetta was a Spymac person. EWWW!!

So what about a get together of NOVA MR members?

Was thinking that we might (if we had enough members in attendance) get the Apple Tysons location to do a special session for us. Do it early enough on a Sunday (sorry, but that is the only weekend day I have); and then we can go off to Niesha Thai ( great Thai restaurant in the Mall), or the Rainforest Cafe.
