Sounds cool, and welcome to the hackday, good to see someone has 
traveled so far to join us.

There is quite a lot of stuff listed that we are aiming to work on, from 
the Ironman, to Oyster and Presenting Perl sites there is plenty of 
stuff to do and you never know you might learn how to do something ;)

I think Ian is going to try and meet you, mst is in America at the 
moment but will be back on Friday so he may come out with Chris 
(epitaph) as well. I will try and slip away for an hour after I have 
finished getting the office stocked for Saturday. How long are you 
staying for?
