I was going to write a lengthy blog post, but I understand Dave Walker
has already done this and it's sat in his out tray :)

Some highlights for me:-

* Sitting on the train en route to London, two guys get on and start
talking about Hardy upgrades.. "No, we're just a couple of web
developers who happen to use Ubuntu".

* Cake http://flickr.com/photos/secretlondon/2440148340/ (thanks Dave).

* Dave standing on a chair and telling the entire pub to "Shut the F***
Up!" at maximum volume to announce the aforementioned cake.

* The new Ubuntu UK Podcast polo shirts, ordered by Ciemon (and worn
here by Dave Walker [along side Kat Kinnie - on the left :)])

* The _great_ company. So many fun people in one place. It was really a
good laugh.

Overall a great venue (if a little hot inside) with great beer, and
great people. Kat, if you're organising this again, then De Hems gets my

Thanks to everyone for coming along.
