BIUX is indeed near to TELUX for people with car or other means of
transportation.  However, at rush hours, transportation time between TAU
and BIU can be as long as an hour, equivalent to 100Km of inter-city
clear road.  And LUG meetings typically start at or shortly after rush

So it makes sense to hold some Linux related lectures in BIU.

I suggest that BIUX and TELUX coordinate their lectures and times so
that at least people with too much time on their hands will be able to
profitably spend their time in both TELUX and BIUX.  It may also be a
good idea to schedule a lecture and then let the BIUX and TELUX members
vote together where they prefer to hear the lecture - TAU or BIU.  Then
hold the lecture where the majority prefers it.
