Sure, I'm in for that.

How about trying to use this meetup.com to organize the meeting (rather than endless back and forth here)? (I've been wanting to try it.)

Hey Reginald,

I saw recently that you're doing a stand up routine, I mean presentation, at the next XP/Agile Toronto meeting. Looking forward to it.

You should plug it here. Oops, I already did.

If you'd like to attend the presentation, here're the details:

Prakash S
Tuesday, November 04, 2003

Yes, that is where 102.1 The Edge is. :)  222 Yonge to be exact.  In the Eaton's Centre.

Ray
Tuesday, November 04, 2003

Yeah.

Christopher Wells

They can call it the 102.1 the Edge all they want. It's still CFNY to me. And I miss the Alternative Bedtime hour. :-)

Nathan,

"Dos... Cervesos, two beers in spain"

dos cervezas

beer is female, also in spain are well differentiated the Z and C, but in several spanish countries as south-america are pronounced as "S".

I'll taste two beers in lunch here, Toronto must wait.

Live in Newmarket, work in Etobicoke. A couple of newmarketers here eh? (I had to throw in the Eh).

Gp
Wednesday, November 05, 2003

I think I win the commuting sweepstakes so far. I live in Barrie and work in the south end of Etobicoke (427 & QEW).

As always, beer sounds good.

Did somebody say beer?

Craig

Hey! I used to live in Etobicoke - just south of Royal York & Bloor. But I live in Atlanta now so won't be able to make it :(

Is anyone else disturbed when they realize how largely local what seemed like such a global discussion group really is?  :-) I've found this on quite a few boards: Us Canadians are very prolific on the net.

Dennis Forbes

Anyone else from Ottawa?

David Jones
Wednesday, November 05, 2003

Ottawa?? Getting closer...I am in Montréal...

Go .... Sens Go!
Wednesday, November 05, 2003

Oh Tim, I miss the Alternative Bedtime as well.  I guess that sort of ages us. :)  Hmmmm.... Danny Elwell....  I actually heard her recently on another station, I can't remember which one.  Maybe Mojo, I remember that it was on some sort of national show and I think she was actually in Winnipeg.

Ray

Or the "No repeat" workday, or even the all-request breakfast/nooner.

Sigh.

anon
Wednesday, November 05, 2003

The nooner is still around (I think), but the breakfast has been cut from a Saturday/Sunday thing to just Saturday.

Ray

Albert,

We could always have our own meeting here in Edmonton and talk about how much better it is to be an Oilers fan... ;)
