London Python Meetup tomorrow

Tap, tap. Is this thing on?

Now, blackmail is an ugly word, but I can't think of any other word for it - Simon Willison tells me that he'll come to tomorrow evening's London Python Meetup (at The Stage Door near Waterloo) if, and only if, I start blogging again. So, I don't really have a lot of choice, do I? Let's see if I can manage a post or two a day...

It would be beneath me to get my revenge by mentioning that at one point last night (at Sam Newman's London 2.0 meetup) Simon referred to Jack Davenport as "the hot one from Pirates of the Caribbean", don't you think? ;-)

Anyway, do try and get along tomorrow evening, all you London based Pythonistas. I think there will be a good crowd, including Steve Holden, Simon Willison, Tim Couper, Remi Delon and many other equally nice but not quite so famous chaps. (Yes, probably all chaps.) So, get practising.

Maybe you should have replace the "Make Poverty History" logo in the top right hand corner with a cobweb

Looks like I'll make it as well. Be good to see everyone. :-)

ah, at last :-)
now there won't be an odd looking page as your main page fails to render with no recent posts :-)

Wow. It seems that the ends really do justify the means, and everyone in my cubicle agrees that Simon Willison is a hero! Great to see you online again.

Wish I could make the meetup, but will be getting ready for the Sydney Python meetup instead. :(

I too shall be going to the Sydney meetup instead. Have a pint of wife beater for me.

I shan't be indulging in any speed drinking because I wouldn't be seen dead with a baseball cap on backwards. It is far too uncouth.

Good to see you back, Simon. Must update my feeds to put you back on my list. And, now that we have details of Mr Willison, you'll have to keep blogging or we'll get him to taunt you a second time!

Oh - what a surprise - I'd almost given up hope!
