Sclerotic (Sorry still have no idea how its spelt)
Leo

Big shouts to the two relative newbies. Nice to have you on board, please
come again.

I turned up on time in the firm belief that I was going to be the only one
there, but I was pleasantly surprised to find Leo and Sclerotic already
hovering, in a lost looking fashion, around the silver man. Small talk and
introductions passed the few minutes until Zipser arrived. L-s-L and Zippy
then launched into a in depth discussion of the freenet project
(www.freenetproject.org) and the problems therein. Namely issues with its
horrendous and ever expanding memory and CPU usage and the fact the network
is still recovering its previous strength. *Quick Update* The freenet network
got piss poor a few builds ago, its still not much good but seems to be
returning to the kind of standard I got when I first started running it.
Also its still recovering from the Slashdot effect that caused a load of
temporary nodes to fill the network and f*ck up the routing tables.

Upon the arrival of Savvy and a swift movement to our choice drinking
establishment the conversation became more 2600ish. Usual disclaimer
applies.

The conversations ranged from the topical:

Windoze DirectX security holes (Oooopppss!!!) and Cisco security holes (Dear
oh dear).

To the completely irreverent:

Holland and why its good (Mashup) and Corporate freebies and why there good
(hmmmm buffets).

Bit of a small meet this one, so many of the conversations were of a
sociable nature.

Bit later on in the evening Re-load made a flying visit with a box of toys
for the younger (and older) members of the group to take home and play with.
The site of us rooting though a box of these toys caused a few strange looks
from neighbouring tables, and we had to assure the bar staff nothing illegal
was occurring.

The night passed peacefully with conversations on many different subjects
far to numerous to mention, before the three surviving members drifted, in a
slight alcohol fuzz out the door, and into the night.

"Just noticed I forgot the quotes!!" L-s-L

"I look more feminine than she did" L-s-L

"Makes you wonder what you fiddle with when your not fiddling with a bottle" Savvy

"Its too pliable" Re-Load

"Its not porn.....by my standards" Re-Load

"You where going to write that down but thourght better of it" Re-Load

Thats all for now.

Hope to see you all soon.

Peace

L-s-L
