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.

No?

To those of you who met in London today: hope you had (are having?) a good time! If next time is going to be on this side of the Channel, I’ll try and be there…

Re: Meetup - London, 3 Sept 2011

Thanks Els, I really enjoyed myself. Lovely to meet some different folk.

Thanks to all who came, including the surprise Canadian contingent: awesome! Please e-mail me any decent photos and / or copy text from things you may have talked about that I wasn’t party to (or might have forgotten to include) and I’ll amalgamate it all into a blog post. Watch the usual G+ / FB channels too for tidbits.

Many thanks for the beers guys, great to chat to y’all and put the world to rights, even if it was just for one afternoon.

Re: Meetup - London, 3 Sept 2011

Just got back from London last night. Still settling-in (family) and will get what few photos I have your way, Stef!

Really nice meeting you, Anton, Phil, and the surprise Canadian contingent, Les and Darren. :)
