MPLUG appears to have been the Mid-Pacific Linux User's Group.  Google
cache shows their www page from a year ago (Feb. 18, 2006)

http://209.85.165.104/search?q=cache:a8ajOwFq70QJ:www.mplug.org/+mplug&h
l=en&ct=clnk&cd=5&gl=us

with the following text:

July 26, 2003 - MPLUG and LUAU have merged into the Hawaii Open Source
Education Foundation.

It links to http://www.hosef.org/

The mplug.org domain is currently owned by a Warren Togami with
addresses in Nashua, New Hampshire and Honolulu, Hawaii.  Very odd.
