[there are actually no spoliers left in this post so I'm removing the
spoiler space]

 i'm a little worried that the next season will suck.
 lets wait and see if the warning signs are there, more
 weird settings i.e. they all get sucked into the
 movie casablanca and the episode is entirely in black
 and white, guest appearances from other shows/from
 major celebrities.

Apparently they're planning a musical episode[1]

So, this could be an ending to make sure she and Univeral have

 So, this could be an ending to make sure she and Univeral have

Anthony Head said this morning on Live  Kicking[1] that Buffy will
definitely be back and that the change of network in the US would not effect
the BBC showing new Buffy (everyone involved was trying not to mention the
rival Sky).  Obviously, this is just his opinion but it adds to the rumour
mill.

Wednesday morning, series creator Joss Whedon (who wrote and directed the finale)
posted to the official WB Buffy board dispelling the hoax rumor. 'Buffy' will
be back next season starring Sarah Michelle Gellar ... Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on UPN,
Whedon wrote. How will we bring her back? With great difficulty, of course. And
pain and confusion. Will it be cheezy [sic]? I don't think so. Thursday, he
further laid to rest the hoax rumor, and revealed some plans for next season,
in an interview with TV Guide Online. Did you know that Giles is getting a BBC spinoff?

So, was that fun or what?

Thanks to everyone who turned up and a special thanks for everyone
who made it possible - Damian (obviously), Merijn Broeren, Mike Davis,
Paul Mison and Andy Williams (for paying for the hall) and the 
unnameable organisation who brought Damian to London in the first 
place.

Our next meeting is on Thursday. I know you might be suffering from
too much Perl Mongers, but please bear in mind that we need to spend
at least £250 in this pub the Dave Cantrell has booked for us, so every
little helps :)

Oh, and I've had a quick look at Bleach.pm and Morse.pm and wish to
raise a bug against Morse.pm. It doesn't actually convert stuff to
Morse Code, just to something that _looks_ like Morse Code.

 Morse Code, just to something that _looks_ like Morse Code.

I'm glad you said that cos when I was in the audience I couldn't match
up what I saw with what the program was (although I only got as far as 
character 3 so assumed there was some kind of preamble).  Mind you,
I only do 15-20wpm aural, barely 1wpm visual.

They are not rude - its a lie.  The correct term I think is apathetic.
However, don't expect eye contact while taking the order (they will be
watching other people while you talk to them).

I think it's a case of knowing what to expect. If you expect quick, very
cheap food, that tastes OK then you are fine. If you want a romantic dinner
for 2, forget it and go to any of the other places 2 minutes walk away.

Hmm. yeah. There was a bit of a mix up - I booked in advance and asked
for seating for 30 people but when I arrived they'd done standing space
for 30 instead. Which was a bit of an arse.

See the points people have with noise and smoke though.

The TVRs were 34 quid each but had about 8 shots of vodka and 8 shots of
tequila in and 6 cans of redbull.

Which is quite expensive but not *that* bad.
