OK guys I think this is going to be our last meeting before the NewYear and we normally have a Christmas meal but that’s probably not even legal at the moment so I suggested that we would get our flavour of takeaway and meetup eat and chat so totally informal but we can still talk about Linux and Open source stuff with our mouths full. Everyone is welcome as usual including Spouses etc after all they are watching you eat in front of the camera anyway. Dont fancy eating dont worry you can chitter chatter all things,all people welcome! As usual see you there-JA
