Well it would be foolish if I said no?

Also, hi, this is Timelord, thought you may know me as Timey ;)
As per the usual spiel and all that other stuff.

Some general thoughts:

It looks like everyone is covered, but happy to meet folk at stations as well if I get down there early enough. Just to see Becka do her Station Fu again like she did at TFN.

For a general hub. the Montagu Pyke pub (and I think the others that were mentioned as well, though I don't know them) is slap bang in the middle of everywhere we nerds are likely to want to go, meaning people not keen on the tube can avoid going on it more than they have to. All the comic shops (Orbital, FP and right in the middle or a prolific amount of pornographic book shops--including one selling in its window my favourite ever book title, "The 3D Vagina"--GOSH), a quick hop to Oxford Street for more general shopping and plenty of other places to eat and drink if we fancy something fancier than a Spoonies at any point.

I'd also suggest maybe starting a FB event page, mainly because I've found that's the best way to let as many people as possible know of any changes as quickly as possible (ie, if the pub we're supposed to meet in is full of insane Gobots fans everyone gets a quick ping on their phone to say we're moving rather than having to keep checking the forum).

I echo Stu's idea of putting up a FB event page. I ran it that way for a few years and it always drummed up interest. Plus it's great at updating things up to the day and as it happens for those with smartphones (I did a lot of geotagging).

Excellent idea! I'll put a page up tonight and link to it everywhere, will definitely be easier logistically :)

Montagu Pyke sounds good, I'll suggest that as the meet oop place although we could also meet outside FP or Orbital Comics?
