It is several years since the last gathering (June 2010) and, despite many apologies, only a hard core turned up. But that was fine: we drank, we ate, we chatted, we went home.
Anne Carter, Farrakh Siddiqui
A special mention, and commiserations, go to Valter Johansson (formerly of Index) who came but could not find us hidden in a booth thanks to the poor cellular coverage.

One of the apologies was from Nalin Goonewardene who will be visiting the UK in September and October so I'll propose another gathering then - and not on a Thursday so Simon Hargrave can attend. Let's see who can make it next time with a little more notice.
