Figured I'd forward this here, mainly to point out that the Knuth talk still seems to be open for registration and there are some BSD Unix types about for a pint afterwards if any of you fancy it...

> Also, in February, I've decided that it might be best for those who have to travel in or who have a busy schedule that we move the BSD meetup to be the same night as Donald Knuth's talk at Manchester University (which I expect most of us are interested in attending):

> The Q&A format Knuth has chosen means it will be a singularly unique event, and will either be truly amazing and interesting, or - perhaps more likely given the probable audience - dull, stilted and occasionally embarrassing. However, it's Donald Knuth and therefore it would be remiss to at least not show up if you have even a passing interest in Computer Science, I reckon.
