mailman is old, old from days long ago before the present changed
environment of what the internet has become...

Phew... Do we have to be "geek" or "nerd" nowadays to even know of
maillists and usenet/newsnet let alone to be using them?!

Does our group need to move into the new world of Facebook and Twitter?


Or do we enjoy a sort of elitism away from the Marketing driven noise?

Hey :-) That sounds good for a talk! ;-) ;-)

Webcast? Videolink?? :-P

Dr Who -style cinema video link??? (We can hire Broadway some afternoon)

Or even better: A minimalist html5 live presentation? ;-)


Good to have you around. Hope not too damp and dark that far north!

Until the next meet,

Have fun,
