Feb9 update

Peter isn't coming to the next meeting. It's unfortunate, but we'll get him to speak later in the year, and we'll find a fantastic replacement instead. It'll all be just fine.

Suggestions for speakers are always welcome, incidentally. If you're reading this, then please have a think about what you would present to the group if you were put on the spot. And then think about whether you could offer to present it. I'd appreciate, and I'm sure the group would too. And then drop me an email (rob_farley at hotmail) to let me know. :)

And if you're not reading this, then just ignore me. I won't take it personally, really I won't...
