Glad people enjoyed it.  I counted that we had a total of £30 from the
subs and the room cost £48 for the evening.  I've split the cash and
sent half of it to Stephen towards his costs.

Again thanks to Stephen for stumping up cash and bringing the water
along, all the speakers for speaking, Toby for the projector and who
ever bought the prawn crackers along (Ilyan?).  Finally thanks to all
who came along and hopefully had a good time.

A few things that have come up in discussions since the night:

* It's a general feeling that people shouldn't end out of pocket when
putting it on and that people wouldn't mind paying a bit more

* We could go to the pub afterwards for general nattering

* The meeting house is a good venue and for the time being the room is
plenty big enough, we can have talks at one end and 'other stuff' at the

I'd like to get the publicity going for the next one, get posters up
early, posts on blogs, forums, twitter et al, see if we can get a few
more people along.

Finally, I'm thinking of the second sunday of the month?  I would like
to schedule the next 2/3, book them and then get them well publicised.

Think that's about it for now.

I'll post up a schedule and stuff later on.
