[14:14:24] <ebel> czajkowski, davem, terran_ know more than me about it (did I miss anyone?)
[14:14:34] <slashtom> there is no time on that page
[14:14:34] <czajkowski> MootBot:
[14:14:38] <czajkowski> moonpie:
[14:14:39] <czajkowski> :)
[14:14:55] <ebel> tdr112 (who's not here now) and robfitz are getting a lift down with me.
[14:14:59] <airurando> slashtom: I thought the time was listed at the bottom
[14:15:26] <slashtom> no, that's the accommodation
[14:15:27] <ebel> I'm just wondering if people are staying over on Saturday night, or what? Anything planned for after the event?
[14:15:29] <airurando> right after the map
[14:15:39] <ebel> Anyone going? Anyone willing to give lifts?
[14:15:50] <czajkowski> moonpie: ping
[14:16:01] <czajkowski> ther is some drinks and food on aftweard
[14:16:04] <czajkowski> *afterwards
[14:16:09] <slashtom> ah yes airurando, it's formatting issues
[14:16:12] <czajkowski> students are coming from redbrick - dcu and galway
[14:16:18] <slashtom> appears to the right side of the map
[14:16:21] <ebel> tdr112 says you can get a twin room in the local Travellodge for ?44 IIRC But you have to book before 7 days in advance
[14:16:29] * airurando is going but Ill be leaving from kildare
[14:18:33] <ebel> right, well I think me and slashtom will be staying over. tdr112 and robfitz aswell.
[14:18:43] <ebel> we'll go for the travellodge
[14:19:15] <ebel> so if other people are staying over, we could make that the 'conference hotel'
[14:19:58] <ebel> as far as I know, it's quite close to UL.
[14:20:39] <ebel> http://maps.cloudmade.com/?lat=52.668185&lng=-8.582854&zoom=15&directions=52.67265451804871,-8.570977449417114,52.66422892435329,-8.58607292175293&travel=foot&styleId=1&opened_tab=1
[14:20:46] <ebel> how to get from UL to the hotel
[14:21:26] <ebel> Sound like a good idea? thoughts? ideas? comments? questions? approvals? criticisms?
[14:21:58] <slashtom> is there a coffee shop nearby?
[14:22:25] <czajkowski> where;s mean-machine
[14:22:41] <airurando> Sounds like a good idea to me. Suggest getting the idea out to the skynet organisers and mailing list.
