if anyone were to call for a Chugalunch these days, does that make them Chu=
galug President... =C2=A0 indefinitely?

things that make you go "hmmm"

=============================================================== From: Cybertech ------------------------------------------------------ Possibly since it might take out 3/4 of us if someone unknowingly showed up with covid-19 how does that go for hmmmm ?

=============================================================== From: Michael Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ Ed, Calling a Chugalunch is a minor event, it only makes you a minor officiant. and you are already a King. You might choose the title Augustus King, or Emperor King just so we know you are just speaking of your humble less elevated normal self. Scheduling a Chugalug, an actual meeting, is a major event. The term "President" no longer seems apropos. Perhaps a better title would be: Lord Emperor Sovereign King or maybe High Priest of the Great Old Linux Geeks and Sultan Kaiser King. In any case, the rules and lore handed down through the ages cite that you are ruler until the next meeting, in which case you are dethroned, impeached and removed, beheaded (ceremoniously, not actually) and accepted back into the fold as a common member. The group survives on Anarchy until the next person impales themselves on hosting a meeting. The current special circumstances state that there are no physical meetings or more than X (a variable) and to keep 6+ feet from other people. So you would be ruler "in situ" until an actual meeting were held either in person or in yet another attempt at an online conference (zoom, hangouts, etc..). It might be months you would command the throne unopposed, rescheduling the theoretical meeting until our group can safely meet in person or until it meets virtually. In summary: Schedule a meeting. Pick a title, even President.. If you need inspiration: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imperial,_royal_and_noble_ranks
