I'm still around and still using Linux as my main OS. I went to a couple 
of Hackspace meetings before they got their own building. I'm just not 
playing much with that sort of thing, much as I would like to. My time 
is mostly spent on music these days.

There used to be a techie group called SyncHerts that met up in 
Stevenage to talk about all sorts of things, but that is not running any 
more. I saw some of the HertsLUG people there.

I would be up for a meetup of the old crowd some time.
