Heh.  Seattle area is *full* of computer "activities."  Seat of
Intel/MS, and as a result, a lot of other technological companies. 
University of Washington is also a huge computer school, definitely one
of the best (no MIT, but still ~,^).

That's actually why I'm planning on moving out there from Michigan (ya,
I'm right next to UofM, but Ann Arbor has a shortage of decent jobs
available to a Linux-specialist).
