Yea yea, this is my second post for the day. I'm pissed with work and the office stinks because they painted the bloody conference room, they turned the aircon off and spray some bloody smelly stuff at the reception area. It's driving me to distraction. I'm making up for lost blog time and I feel the urge type more too. Need anymore reasons? *wink Anyways, I was reading up my bloglines today. Lori from Lorispeak certainly caught my attention. My goodness gracious, I think I've only been bitten by 3 things in comparison to her collection of bites! Let's see, I got bitten by mosquitoes, red ants and my furkid, end of my collection. I can't imagine cat fleas jumping up from the carpet to bite legs either. Eouch!
Our little Malaysia group have been using Meetup.com for a few months. It was pretty sad for us that they decided to charge just as we were starting to get comfortable there. The active members are now at Google groups.
But for others who might still be looking for an alternative, I'm sharing what I've found. Hope it helps. Many of these substitude are similar but not a complete replacement for meetup.com.
