Oct02 Meeting Report.
Brum2600 Oct 2002
Bit of a short report this one. As the Meet was tiny. Prior to the event I had received apologies from Bambam (up norf), Pink (dawn saath), Agent (On holiday) and Fizzy (London) I assume that the ritualistic humiliation of those who fail to attend without a good excuse must be working.
Other absentees include MinusQ (I'm coming, no I'm not, yes i am, maybe, if I feel like it, No.) and Al De Large, who's excuse is simply the best I've heard yet. All the best Al, and here's wishing you a speedy recovery.
Anyway those who struggled out eventually include....
Arriving late I went straight to the pub where I was joined by Sav and had a pint whilst we watched a visiting 50's swing band set up and waited for Re-Load and Zipser. By the time the four of us had got together it was very clear that due to the size of the pub and the volume of the band we were going to have to move. Savvy obliged and drove us all down the road to out previous venue, (of may years) the refurbished Hogs Head.
We soon settled right in on some comfy chairs, to be joined by Uniqhorn. Topics of the night ranged from the amusing to the scary and back again.
Speeding and traffic police was more of a gripe this month than Micro$ofts continued world domination. It is worth pointing out that if stopped by a mobile speed camera (one of those hair dryer type things) you have every right to demand to see a up to date calibration certificate for it, as well as the PCs authorisation signed by the duty Sargent, should they fail to produce either of these the claim may be contested. Pointing out to the police that maybe their resources would be better directed toward stopping muggings in Snow Hill station may also be a good idea (preferably after the court case). Continuing on the theme of the down right illegal various drug drying methods where pondered over.
NOTE: AT NO TIME DURING BRUM2600 DOES ANY ILLEGAL ACTIVITY TAKE PLACE.
IT IS A FORUM FOR FREE AND UNCENSORED DISCUSSION OF INFORMATION.
On the computer side of things one exploited box in particular was discussed, the need for informed and intelligent admins particular relevant in this case.
On a personal note Brum2600 is attempting to track/contact two of our former members. So the following is an appeal to Skriv and Fell: Where are you now? Let us know, come to a meet again, we'll even buy u drinks.
As Bambam isnt writing a report this meet all the humorous mis quotes are absent and all thats left are these.....
"If he wasn't in prison he'd do us a great deal"
"What a Prick"
"Ive too much salt on my fingers"
"Oh no! Ive got tissue stuck to it"
"Your just no devious enough"
Right thats almost it...
See you all soon
