Excuse the top post, but I wanted to resend the original message in
it's entirety in case anyone didn't see it the first time around.

I'm happy to announced that Charles Sibbald has agreed to present a
talk on Saturday about the Asterisk PBX Manager package, and Asterisk
in general. Charles works for Inventigo who specialise in VoIP

I know Asterisk is a "cool" technology currently, and there is an
active thread on the mailing list at the moment, so I think this
should be a very relevant and interesting talk.

Full details of the Tuesday 18th and Saturday 22nd meeting are
included below, and please don't forget if you know of a potential
speaker, or would like to present a talk yourself (from a 5 minute
flash update to a full presentation) you would be more than welcome

Jono Bacon and Ted Haeger will be presenting on the 18th, and Shane
Coughlan is presenting with Charles on the 22nd.

Thank you and I hope to see you at one (or both :) ) of the meetings
in a few weeks.
