The evening demonstrated the ancient tradition of cat herding [...]
We drove around for a while and eventually they phoned to say they
were already at the microbrewery.  The rest follows as before, eat,
drink and go to bed about 4am.  A few people weren't present this
time as they were at Eric Raymond's geeks with guns sessions. Frankly
I'm not keen on guns and even less keen on the idea of a gun wielding
RMS explaining free software ethics to terrified onlookers.
