spd thinks there are a few gentoo people in cambridge, so we're going to have a meet on Thursday 4th in the Eagle at 7:30. You'll probably be able to spot us, me and spd will be there, pop by and see who else turns up!

mods: could you sticky this, else it'll drop off the end of the board, only for 2 weeks. Thanks!

Mod Edit: stickified - tomk
Mod Edit(2): unstickified - plate

Oi. *Points at username*. :P

And yeah, we'll probably decide based on the number of people who turn up to this one whether or not to arrange any more. I reckon there should be enough of us around to make it worthwhile, so there's no excuse. ;)

If you're walking, it's a non-trivial distance, but quite doable. Probably half an hour or so, but I can never judge these times properly. ;)

I reckon you're about right on the time to get there. But after a few pints, perhaps a bit longer on the way back! :-)

you can get the number 1 bus into the city centre from the station. its around the area of number 36 on http://www.cam.ac.uk/map/v3/drawmap.cgi?mp=main;xx=1900;yy=1040;gf=png. We can meet at the bus station if people dont know the way

Heh, I know people at Homerton and Christs, small world eh?

I'm at the other (better ;)) place though. I'd come along if it was a weekend, but I doubt I can make it on a Thursday

I live just outside Cambridge, I might come along :-)

Edit The calendar says I can't, because I've got a birthday party to go to instead. Maybe next time.

It usually takes me about 20 minutes to get to city centre from railway station.
I am going to be there as well.

I'll be wearing a tshirt with an apple on it, dunno everyone else.

Anyone who doesnt know the way, get the number 1,3 or 7 bus from the train station to the city centre, get off next to the big roadwork wooden thing on the right and we can meet you there.

Argh - I'd love to come along, but I'll be on holiday next week. Have a good one guys; I hope there will be another one. Ironically, I'm missing the Cambridge LUG pub meeting too. Talk about bad timing....

I'm at Wadham, doing computer science (I'm a "first year", but last year I was a first year physicist - wonder what degree I'll be doing this time next year ;))

If there's ever another Cambridge meetup, how about having it at a weekend?

The problem with weekends is that it's physically impossible to find a pub with room for more than 3 people to talk adequately. ;)

Dude, I'm a second year Engineering and Computer Science student so I go to some first year Comp Sci lecture courses. I've probably been in the same room as you sometime in the past week. Assuming of course you turn up to 9/10am lectures (I've binned a few...). I do the Discrete Maths and Functional Programming courses.

i'm in letchworth .. i don't recall st albans being on the line to cambridge. however i think it may be a good idea for all people travelling by train to meet up at the train station at a certain time? will anyone else be coming on the train?

If there are people coming in on the train that don't know their way around, I could meet them at the station if that's reckoned to be helpful.

I'm far from a developer or a guru, but I'd love to sit down with you guys. I have three months to spend here in the UK and little to do. It's a bit of a drive, but I'm quite sure I could make it. That is if you don't mind the company of a newbie american.
