Thanks Barry.

Note to ALL:


This is a very public list open to all including search engines...


Can you coordinate please and see if we can group up on a preferred day.

For myself, I would nominate a Wednesday or Thursday afternoon prior to
an NLUG meeting.

And considering recent events (outages) in various datacentres across
London, we'll be asking about power protection and resilience and backup
amongst the usual questions about connectivity...


(OK, so that sounds like you have Paul and myself for starters :-) )
