Okay, and will be for some time, but that's no excuse not to get over there right now and vote if there's a chance you'll be attending. Ask any of the attendees from the last one and they'll tell you how much fun they had! (Or will do once my cheques clear.)
But honestly, we'd love to have you there! hp_uk_meetup Go. Vote. Leave a pithy comment. Or just a regular one.
