Hello folk!

A reminder that I am running a Dreamwidth contributor weekend this Saturday.

If you need my address and I haven't sent it you by tomorrow, please comment here or PM me and I'll send it + instructions on finding the place.

If you'd like to attend remotely, find us on IRC or add me on Skype (ekabrett): I'm intending to have a spare machine running a video Skype call to interested folk from the corner of one of the rooms from about 10.30am on the Saturday (i.e. if you're attending in person and would rather not participate in the Skype call this will be avoidable).

There will be dedicated quiet space.

Please do not wear clothes you've smoked in since last washing them, and please don't smoke (including e-cigs) while at the event. I've got a nasty tobacco allergy.

Saturday brunch will be available (options on porridge, bread + toast, scrambled eggs). Cake will be available. I'm going to be making two big vats of vegan and gluten-free food, with options to add gluten or dairy. There will be lots of cake. There is infinite tea and tisane, instant coffee, slightly more real coffee, decaff coffee, and an Aeropress. Whole milk will be provided; if you are after non-whole-milk (semi-skimmed, non-dairy, whatever) please bring some along.

There is a corner shop just over the road, a medium sized cooperative and various other corner shops a short walk away, and a very large Tesco a slightly longer walk away.

I am currently slightly discombobulated, so may well have missed things; please do ask questions if you have any!

Yep, us in bitter-weekend in North America can only sigh deeply late at night :,)

Have a lovely time!

Hope it goes well! I will be busy with the Discworld MUD Bugfix Weekend, which is a similar-ish sort of thing. I could well be interested in the next one if you decide to do another one though.

Yay!

For information, the Bugfix Weekends are always on the first weekend of the month — but please don't plan around me, as I often have to work on weekends so can't guarantee I'd be able to make a non-first-weekend either (and indeed can only manage about half of the Bugfix Weekends, so try not to miss any except for work).

I have just remembered that last time I tried, Skype video calls were limited to two participants unless one of the participants had a paid-for account. That was a while ago, so this may have changed. But if not, then Google Hangouts - which definitely has no such restriction, and also allows for >5 people, may be better
