Well, I'll be there if I can - I'll have had all four wisdom teeth out on the 
Thursday (which also means I'll miss the Programming SIG too, curse curse) so 
I'll probably still be mumbling and doped up to the eyeballs.  Still, some 
might consider this an improvement on my usual level of coherence :-)

But go with the 12th as a first 'start the ball rolling' date and we'll see 
how it turns out.  Unless there are other good reasons to have it the 
following Saturday...

Have fun,
