Hi all,

Thats perfect Martin, thank you.

With that in mind I would propose the 20th October for the visit from lets say 3pm onwards.  I don't need to know exact numbers immediately but I would say if you could let me know by the 13th October so I can try and get some refreshments sorted for you.

I need to point out we would need to take a copy of individuals photo ID that we would keep on record here so that we can give evidence of who entered the facility for ISO27001 purposes, if you ever wanted / needed to come back in again we would not need to take another copy.

I would also need to take car registrations for those who will be driving to the site.

Again,  for those of you that are interested in attending please do confirm with me on my direct email, which again is barry.fox at spacedatacentres.co.uk.

Speak to you all soon

We usually meet every 1st, 3rd, and 5th (if there is one) Thursday each

We also include a few extras around Beeston to fill in any gaps...

And then there are occasional impromptu celebrations as is the case for
tonight. :-)

Take a look on:


for what we've recently done.

And we're usually quite spontaneous such that we'll be doing 'something'
'interesting' even if the website doesn't get updated until on the day!

(Best is to watch the maillist.)

A Thursday would make good sense, including for the ready availability
of late transport.

At the moment, a good assumption is that you'll have Paul, Jason, John
and myself interested. We run quite a few machines between us...

Others? Please list your interest.

(Normally, people do not get to walk into the cloud... Or the Matrix...
:-) )
