<em>Cut &mdash; Well, here’s the weekend in brief…</em><br /> So Friday
night was pretty quiet, mostly just pottered around coding, reading,
watching
<a       href="http://www.channel4.com/entertainment/tv/microsites/D/distraction/index.html">distraction</a>
and generally vegging out. Saturday saw me get a drastic hair-cut so
that I could wear my snuggly hat with impunity. Then the
<a       href="http://wiki.earth.li/DebianXmasMeet">Debian Xmas Meet</a>
began and things got geeky. I had a good chat with lots of local geeks,
and a couple of less-local ones; planned to meet up with one or two over
new-year in Edinburgh and generally had a good time of it. We started at
the Regal as is common (although we’re thinking of changing this)
proceeded to the Salisbury Arms, and ended up in the Live &amp; Let Live
by the end of the day. Finally we went to Steve McIntyre’s place for a
cup of tea/coffee, a beer or two, more chatting about Star Trek (was on
telly) and then more Debian geeking, before

and I finally went home. It was good to see

<a href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/morayallan">Livejournal:morayallan</a>,
<a href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/dpash">Livejournal:dpash</a>
and many others. Sunday was quiet.
<a href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/gerald_duck">Livejournal:gerald_duck</a>
came over and we played various games, including Mao, Carcasonne, Hearts
(which I lost abysmally at), Scrabble (ditto) and I’m sure something
else. Again, much chatting, geeking and general fun was had by all. And
then…. I slept
