something weird comes over me when I'm on the JSOxford twitter
it's all caps-lock and hashtags

@spikeheap doesn’t understand what’s going on any more
see

OH
spikeheap @spikeheap picks things up slowly
Ben Foxall

Mar 10 2015 16:09
while we're all here. I was thinking of the next meetup - we were going to have a nodebots day, but we're putting it off till June
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 16:09
Do we have a date for April’s meetup? It was the 11th right?
Ben Foxall
@benfoxall
Mar 10 2015 16:09
How would we feel about a hack day "JSOxford Realhack" - hacking with realtime web technologies
the 11th is a Saturday I think
I've talked to Phil at Pusher - they could give us tonnes of access, and stickers etc
would be good to announce tomorrow if so
Tom Lane
@tomlane
Mar 10 2015 16:11
Realhack :+1:
Ben Foxall
@benfoxall
Mar 10 2015 16:12
@spikeheap, @AverageMarcus? Would you be in too?
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 16:13
Let’s do it
We’ll need to put a bit of effort into setting out a bit of a structure/goals/etc, but I’m psyched
Do that instad of the evening meetup?
Ben Foxall
@benfoxall
Mar 10 2015 16:15
cool. Yup - instead of the evening, then we have another evening one in May, then we're hacking in June again
gives us a bit more time to organise speakers
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 16:15
Sounds sensible
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus

:+1:
If wanted my work is still available as a venue
And would be even easier for me as I likely wouldn't need to submit a risk assessment to use soldering irons ;)
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 16:21
Real-time soldering irons?
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 16:21
... sounds hot!

@AverageMarcus - I'd rather go for WO for this one, would be awesome to head to yours for the summer nodebots, but I reckon we'd want to cover logistics of getting people there and stuff (where's it's pretty easy for people to turn up here)
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 16:23
So as we're pretty on the ball (at least more that in the past it seems) how do people feel about filling out the Meetup page with the upcoming events (event if we dont have much description yet) ?
@benfoxall sounds good to me :)
Tom Lane
@tomlane
Mar 10 2015 16:24
People really want to hear about moving from .NET to node. It really isn't that exciting...but eh. :worried:
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 16:25
Sounds good.
@tomlane just add some pictures of cats and ironic musings about the downfall of MS and people will be happy

@spikeheap do we have any haybrook funding for drinks tomorrow?
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 16:29
We do. I’ll be coming over for 6pm (will you guys be about then?) to meet Sarah and head to the shop
Ben Foxall
@benfoxall
Mar 10 2015 16:29
fantastic
I love when you're in control of stuff
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 16:30
Is it because there’s prosecco?
Ben Foxall
@benfoxall
Mar 10 2015 16:30
that's definitely a bonus
Peter West
@peterjwest
Mar 10 2015 16:31
I'll try to get there about 6 too
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 16:31
Any help needed setting up? I'll likely be in Ox 6/6:30 with about 2 other people
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 16:31
There might need to be a pizza-diversion like last time
Tom Lane
@tomlane
Mar 10 2015 16:35
I'm off work tomorrow too if you need yet another person there early.
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 16:39
It’s pretty low-setup, but feel free to come along anyway for funsies and potentially pizza
Tom Lane
@tomlane
Mar 10 2015 16:40
pizza? SOLD.
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 16:41
Where you getting pizza from?
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 16:42
Can’t remember what it’s called, but it was en-route to Sainsbury’s I think. It was good though.
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 16:42
I am unable to eat cheese, so getting a good pizza I can eat is hard :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 16:43
Ah. @benfoxall or @peterjwest could name that place in a heartbeat I’m sure
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 16:53
Pizzeria Trattoria Mario?
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 16:55
That sounds right, but I’m pretty reliable on that one, it was a while ago
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 16:55
If it is, they have the best website: http://www.marioxford.co.uk/
Tom Lane
@tomlane
Mar 10 2015 16:56
oh my lord.
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 17:06
That looks right
In fairness it is totally responsive
It just responds with the finger
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 17:08
Meh! Think I might just get a burrito on the way
Ben Foxall
@benfoxall
Mar 10 2015 18:21
My favourite thing about the marios site is the 'R' at the top of the menu page
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 18:30
So… @tomlane, @AverageMarcus do you have a rough idea of how long your talks will be tomorrow?
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 18:33
longer than a bit shorter than a while
Tom Lane
@tomlane
Mar 10 2015 18:34
almost exactly roughly but probably not 30 minutes ish
....30 minutes tops
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 18:34
Buenos estimatos
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 18:34
Haven't timed mine. Was planning on doing it pretty informally and I don't mind being interupted with questions
if there is a max time i can deffo stick to it if you want
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 18:34
Cool, that’s often the best way
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 18:35
I think mine will be pretty quick unless people want me to go into more detail
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 18:35
No max time - we’ll probably kick off around 7:30-7:45 and try to get some discussion after each talk
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 18:35
I'm not actually telling a lot other than "this is what i did, here's the conf"
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 18:35
We do, especially the node bits, and the Go reimplementation
You’ve started that… right?
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 18:36
what?
Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 18:36
that was directed at @tomlane
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 18:36
ah, makes more sense
Tom Lane
@tomlane
Mar 10 2015 18:37
I mean you joke about it...But I am going to have a go at doing something basic it GO. So I can do a running joke of "I said I'm gonna write it node...and then SOMEONE said write it in GO...So I've done a bit of both"
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 18:37
Quick, everyone tweet as many crazy languages as you know

I don't know what it is about the JSOxford twitter that makes me send weird tweets - https://twitter.com/JSOxford/status/575364861569429505

Ryan Brooks
@spikeheap
Mar 10 2015 18:39
@benfoxall have you been drinking? Perhaps you should
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 18:40
Somebody PLEASE remind me tomorrow to turn off my file syncing before I start
Otherwise my laptop gonna slow down and im gonna use more than my fair share of WoFi
OMG! please change to WO wifi name to WoFi
Tom Lane
@tomlane
Mar 10 2015 18:41

Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 18:41
you have the guest creds dont you?
I still have them saved from nodebots :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
Tom Lane
@tomlane
Mar 10 2015 18:42
not since I last rebuilt my machine. I do that a bit too often.
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 18:42
haha
Peter West
@peterjwest
Mar 10 2015 18:48
we can give you wifi
unless they changed the password since I left
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
Mar 10 2015 18:48
surely you dont need any wifi for your talk ;)
Tom Lane
@tomlane
Mar 10 2015 18:54
it helps :sparkles:
