Ok, this is it I believe. If the slashdotters meetup this Thursday doesnt pull people in, then I'm gonna start slagging off meetup and start rethinking going to them. You know what to give this the full go, I'm gonna be the host this time!
My profile: If sunny, will be sitting outside on a bench sporting a ipaq in one hand a redbull in the other Yellow trainers and something bright for a tshirt. If cold, look for the meetup sign or ask the bar people.
Good stuff, should do the trick.
