As the locals often say: 'ow do.
This Tuesday is the first Tuesday of September. You know what that
Sure you do. Go on... you say it.
Don't be shy, go on...
I know I'm late with the announcement, but I figured you might want
to tell everybody. Go on....
OK, OK, I won't force you. It's:
Manchester BSD User Group - September 2006
The Manchester BSD User Group is a regular meeting of like-minded
geeks in the Briton's Protection[*] pub, Great Bridgewater Street,
A typical event consists of sitting in a pub and arguing/discussing
stuff only geeks care about. And drinking too (hey, it's a pub after
all). And general debate, geek camaraderie, banter and other things
go on that make you feel warm, fuzzy and manly (or girly) on the inside.
Possible topics for discussion this month include:
- The usual debate as to what to upgrade to - phones, laptops, sat
- Early spots on the Christmas wish-list
- SPIDERS!! [**]
- Whose round is it?
- Why I hate running my own company right now
- Inevitably, house/flat prices
- Equally inevitably, right-wing morons
This Tuesday coming - the 5th September I believe (just two days
before the full moon, bring a gun loaded with silver bullets, the
locals start to get weird) - and we typically start around 7pm-ish
and continue through until about 9-10pm or whenever people have to
There was one time when Sam claimed we didn't have a meet and so
nobody turned up but me. I left after an hour and went home and
cried. That won't happen this time, will it? ... ... please?
It's a lovely pub, with a couple of rooms around the back of the bar
we may be in - if it's particularly lovely that evening, we may even
be in the beer garden.
If you can't read a map, e-mail me off list and I'll direct you via a
series of landmarks taking in such delights as McDonald's on Oxford
Road (gasp!), the science and industry museum (wow!) and a dubious
section of the canal (rent-boy-tastic!).
If you are in Manchester that night, and you're reading this, and you
don't turn up, I hate you. HATE you. With a passion. I will cry
myself to sleep that night, before rising the next morning ridden
with sorrow and will take up arms against all men, vowing to destroy
Hope to see you there,
[*] True fact I shouldn't admit to: for years I honestly thought this
place was called the Witness Protection.
[**] Not really. Unless one is there in a corner and errr... Uggghh!
somebody get it away! Arrggghh! It's going to bite me! Urrrrrggghhh!
[flap arms like girl] Urrrrrrrrgggggggggghhhhhhhhhh! *squeal*! etc.
