This is more-or-less how it works out each month. There is a hard deadline for the venue though. Informality rules and good suggestions taken on the list or on the day.
17:00-19:30 Informal meeting for those arriving early and/or ordering food
19:30 The official meeting starts
20:15 Break (if its a longer talk) or end of formal talk
20:45 Anyone got something to say, laptop Linux fixit session (plus more beer)
- This paragraph is now historical interest only. There's a solution that seems to be working well for now.
A thread started which established several things:
- Faye looked at alternatives and sought suggestions
- Faye has access to a Uni room as often as required, free of charge. This is in the Geophysics building,
and has been used once. It is a good venue.
- Some people felt (plus others referenced in emails unavailable to the archive) that having a presentation in a room followed by optional pubs/whatever afterwards would be good. Other people suggested alternative pubs.
- Valley Technology offered sponsorship for tea/coffee/bikkies if a presentation venue can be found, with no attribution sought or wanted
- Peter George has volunteered a room and computers at Net Resources however there is only room for twenty people. (No wheelchair access unfortunately).
It would be nice if you guys have upcoming.com or eventful account so I'm alerted when you meetings are taking place. I'm very keen to attend your next meeting and maybe in the future offer some meeting space. Jamie from Terinea.
This was done for a while but did not generate any new interest. We will be looking at tidying up the webpage and reviewing our on-line presence during 2012.
