Re: Meetup - London, 3 Sept 2011

As it happens, I’ll be in London that day for Science Online London at the British Library. Where will this Txp meetup take place?

Awesome! We’re planning to meet at The Porterhouse in Covent Garden from about 13:30. As I mentioned earlier if you can’t make that, let me know a convenient spot near where you’ll be in the morning and I’ll try and get over there.

Re: Meetup - London, 3 Sept 2011

So very sad to miss this meetup after working close by for years but I am on the other side of the pond these days. If you folks want to eat some seriously good British food too (Porterhouse is an Irish pub, nothing wrong with that but it’s, well, Irish) while you are close by then check out Rules Restaurant a little farther along Maiden Lane. Mouth now watering remembering “Grilled Calves Liver with crisp bacon, sage & mustard mash” followed by “Golden Syrup Pudding with custard”.

Re: Meetup - London, 3 Sept 2011

Thanks for the cuisine tip Joe. If we tire of microwave meals and Guinness then it sounds like a good option! Although with London prices, hmmmm, perhaps sandwiches are preferable. If I’ve been rambling around the city with the camera all morning I might grab a bite on the way to the pub anyway.

And looking at the list of engineering works on the underground this weekend, it appears there might be a lot of walking :-|

Re: Meetup - London, 3 Sept 2011

Well, I have decided to pass this opportunity up – Cyprus for a long weekend next week, then South Africa for the whole week (work) plus I’m saving up my London trip to see the Distraction Club.

I expect their will be a new plugin come out of this… something along the lines of smd_event_in_pub, with live cross-checking of any transport disruptions, tracks who bought which rounds, and shows it all on a fancy chart.

Re: Meetup - London, 3 Sept 2011

I’ll be there — forgot to pack my Textpattern T-shirt, but I’ll look for a happy group raising their glasses in toast to the best CMS.
