Right, as per promise, this event is officially off - 4 people do not a noderfeast make. Maybe some other time, eh?
If there is any interest in this venture from Britnoders, K9 and I are happy to volunteer our humble premises in Swindon, Wiltshire for the purpose of this meet.
Ameneties include a spacious kitchen, a large DVD and MP3 collection, plenty of crash space (provided you bring you own sleeping bag), and a nice central location, roughly halfway between East and West England (easy to get to by bus, train or car). Nearby interest points for the weekend traveller are many and varied, not least amongst them Stone Henge, Avebury, Bath Spa, Lacock Abbey and the Bowood estate. Swindon itself is a shithole, but there are a few late pubs if we want to go get rat arsed after dinner.
Let me know via /msg if you are at all interested, and I will post your name below. For the benefit of my peace of mind, I'd rather not live in suspence until the last moment, so if no one expresses interest by October 17 2004 the whole thing is off. If we get even a modest attendee list by that time, the event will be guaranteed and you can RSVP as late as you like.
