   To gain access to Sun Microsystems, please RSVP via the
   NYC OpenSolaris User Group Meeting Page.  Any information entered
   on that page goes directly to Sun (and Building Security) and bypasses Unigroup.

       Unigroup Registration Page.
   This will allow us to automate the registration process.
