12:00-16:00 sound good?

I'm hoping one of the guy's I've CC'ed will step up to help. Stefano's
already planning the Global Jam and Software Freedom Day events. There
really isn't that much to do from this end: check in advance if venue
can accommodate us (usually ~30 people, access to sufficient power
points), make a booking, advertise at UCT (email to leg-announce, put
up posters, Facebook event, etc.) and make sure Stefano does his
magic. Did I miss anything?
