Fair enough, but it's still a good place for now to jot down notes and the
like. I also have a server and can donate CPU/bandwidth for a list. Don't
know why people would object, since this is hardly off-topic.

OK, that a good suggestion, it's nice and safe date.

Opening shot:

Depending on the number of people, if we are a small group (8 and less),
The Dove Inn in Hammersmith is a really nice place. Food is OK, placement
is fabulous (right on the Thames, see link below) and it's easy to get to.
However, it is small and popular, we might have to book. What I really
like about it, is that it has an enclosed area out the back looking on to
the Thames if somedbody quickly need to nip out for a "fix" (be it getting
a GPS or nicotine fix...).

I will put this in the WIKI as a recommended venue.
