They were nominally filled with myself and Tridge (I really need to get
around to publishing that information somewhere ahead of schedule).

I'm happy to relegate myself to September on the grounds that I haven't yet
finished my slides, and at the rate I'm going I possibly won't have them
finished by CLUG time.

So if you can interleave your talk in with Tridge's, in terms of length, it
should be a goer.
