I think yesterday was the first time that I communicated with the same
person through email, write(1), and IRC, all in one day. Felt kind of
surreal :-)

Finally, due to this and other contextual clues, I've figured out who some of
these IRC names apply to.

 This london-list weekly summary has been brought to you with IRC
 nicknames instead of, err, real names. This is just an experiment - we
 reckon it's a bit silly and more confusing. What do you reckon?

For someone who's never used IRC at all, it's particularly annoying. I'm no
Luddite though, I was using Cheeseplant's house over a decade ago, and wrote
my own chat system, but just never got round to IRC.

I was on Cheeseplant's House as well!

I recently noticed the source was out

Guess who else used to meet in Penderel's Oak.

2001-02-16 Thread Philip Newton

Looks like "Kant's Cave", which appears to the name for the meetings of
"Philosophy for All", some kind of philosophy club, used to take place in
the cellar bar of Penderel's oak once a month (see
http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:www.pfalondon.freeserve.co.uk/kant.htm+
penderel%27s+oakhl=en [all in one line]). However, they appear to have
changed their venue, as you can see by looking at the current page (
http://www.pfalondon.freeserve.co.uk/kant.htm ). They mention that they now
meet on the first Wednesday of the month; this sounds a bit like the current
London.pm scheme.

I don't remember seeing this before, but maybe someone brought it up before
I joined the list last summer.

Cheers,
Philip
