Yes, I'll be at BUUG this evening (missed last meeting due to a
scheduling conflict - first one I'd missed in a while).

I'll have CDs with me:

Among other random topics of discussion, I've recently been
testing/planning for some Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.9 i386 to
Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.4 amd64 "upgrades", along with some
xen --> qemu-kvm conversions.
For some background on that, have a peek here:
(Also, my "new" personal laptop (new to me 2011-12-15) - I have
Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.4 amd64
and qemu-kvm installed on it - so useful platform for also testing
various relevant bits to above mentioned "upgrade").

Oooh, book?  I'll teasingly bring with me:
from No Starch Press, received for review for BALUG ("not" BUUG):
_The Linux Command Line_
    A Complete Introduction
    by William E. Shotts, Jr.
    January 2012, 480 pp.
    ISBN: 978-1-59327-389-7
BALUG gets first crack at it (received two copies), but if BALUG users
don't snatch both of 'em up "fast enough", BUUG may get a shot at it too
(or come to the BALUG meeting 2012-02-21, and then one's definitely got
a shot at it).
