 Well, er..., there will be a meeting on the 21st. I spoke to Alex last 
 night and he said we could hold it at State 51.

Sadly, I can't make it to the meeting after all, even though I'll be in London the 
next day.

Well, it was partly due to having nowhere to stay, but I've requested the train ticket 
now, so it's too late to change my mind. Thanks for the offer, though.

Ooh, goody. People at work (who fortunately will be paying for me to go to
yapc::Europe again this year) have said they'll want to start to get down
details. Probably better to book hotel, travel, etc. *after* I register for
the conference, or I might end up travelling to AMS for nothing.
