The tech meet sounds great. I don't have any topics to add I'm afraid. It's
been a mad couple of months and things have conspired to keep me from
attending a meeting. I really hope to make this one. The weekend before is
Lugradio Live and Oggcamp so I'm gonna be really busy there, hopefully
things will calm down by the Thursday. It's a shame it's not earlier in the
week or I could bring another Linux Outlaw with me, he flies back to Germany
on Wednesday though. Never mind.
The O'Reilly book thing is cool, nice work Les! I saw LivLUG had done it but
didn't even know about the program before that. Reviews would be excellent.
The day trip thing also sounds cool and if we could find a weekend that
works for everyone I'd be interested.
See you all at the tech meet if not before in Wolverhampton. Take care :)
