Hi folks - as we have several sick organisers, I'm looking for a quick show of hands - please indicate if:
A: You intend to come to MXUG tonight
B: You intend to participate in the awesome Coding Competition

We won't cancel at this late stage, as some folks might not be on their e-mail; but it'd be good to get some idea of numbers anyway, *especially* if you are planning to come but might be late.  If we have a shortage of people by 7pm, we might abort and run the competition/talks next month.

Well, I was planning to attend & participate in the Coding
Competition, but certainly have other stuff I could do if there's an
abort. And my participation in the CC is probably going to be semi-
farcial, anyway, as I'd be learning CLSQL on the spot :-)

I'm in camp A.

Definitely was planning on B, but my notebook isn't feeling well.

I will attend and will compete, but more than happy for it to wait
till next month.

I'm importing the data into MongoDB at the moment, so if anyone wants a JSON dump I can provide one :)

Though a bye is looking more likely at the moment, as we have 3 hands so far.  I'll be here though, at least until 7, so if we have a sudden rush of folks who haven't read this mail, we can decide what to do then.

Argh! If it's going to be a bye I'd much rather know _now_, as the
commute for me is > 1 hour (I live in Upwey).

I'd say save the trip, call it a bye *on the competition*; the meeting
will still go ahead. Hopefully you will be significantly more
competitive in your language of choice, then :)

And we need to have Sam involved! Besides, looks like others would
play as well, had they brought laptops ... I vote bye, and in the off
chance it does go ahead, we can do it again next month anyway! (If
there is slots available).

Agreed. It's a bye.  If we get more than a handful anyway, I'll bore them with some Clojure...

Sorry for the late messup, folks!

Okay, I'm calling it a bye then. I'll do my presentation on the Stump
Window Manager then, too ... it'll give me longer to prepare, & I'll
be able to cover it in more depth.

See you all next month.

Ah no, don't stop it for my sake. Looks like you had 3 or 4 other players
ready to go. Attila the Hun didn't cancel the invasion of Bratislava when one
of his soldiers was feeling off colour. It's on the agenda, the organizer is
coming, several people are able to compete; so do it!

Too late! You aren't getting out of the comp that easy :)
