List has been quiet, but my calendar is flashing a reminder at me about the meeting tomorrow.

We still on?

And I offered to present 15 mins on Fossil SCM (but can expand to
20-30 if needed)

Yes - sorry.

The meeting is tomorrow night - the agenda for 15 minute talks (with
agreed exemption from the last meeting) so far is:

Steve Hayes - Agile (3 x 15 minutes)
Sam Watkins - Tachyon
Alec Clews - Fossil

(http://groups.google.com.au/group/mxug/web/2009-10-21)

Then there will be lightning talks - oh how there will be lightning talks.

See you all tomorrow,

Mark.

Since Tachyons travel back in time, you can go see for yourself...

According to Wikipedia a  tachyon has never been found thus making it slightly more difficult to talk about them :)

But that's because finding one would cause a paradox, so the universe
doesn't allow it to happen... :)

I did see a discussion somewhere suggesting that the problems with the
Large Hadron Collider, were just the universe retrospectively causing
accidents to prevent a paradox. It's better than being blown up by
time travelling robots, I guess...

That's nothing, whenever I look at Scarlett Johansson I feel 10 years
younger.

Tal and Paul, you guys were doing much better when you stuck to physics jokes.

I would break out a gag here suitable for an all-hetero all-women
setting, except - oh! Not really appropriate.

Never mind then.

cheers
Brianna

I'd blow a raspberry, but that would be suitable for an
all-have-a-sense-of-humour setting.

Apologies for any offence caused, needless to say causing any was not my
intent.

I'm someone who is well aware of the many sensitive issues around women
+ minorities in IT in particular, and didn't mean to overstep the mark.

Cheers,

Paul
