I note that we are historically more about the social and have struggled
to actually hold a technical based meeting in recent memory.  I'm not
saying this is bad per se, simply that our venue choices aren't to date
motivated by somewhere a talk could be given.

I also note there is periodic talk of moving the venue, as more than one
person has said the guilford arms ain't great.  Much like many a pub
crawl however, once you're in the pub it's suprisingly hard to move on
to the next one.  I think we're struggling with consensus rather than a
lack of suggestions here.

In any event .. if talks are your thing, I note that the Film House have
oodles of space well suited to talks.  They have free wifi, although
they make you jump through stoopid hoops to get it, and although the
food ain't bad, it's perhaps a bit expensive for what you get.

And they won't allow you to plug in laptop power supplies (a problem the
cameo suffers from too along with lacking proper ale and food but do at
least provision wifi that doesn't suck so bad as to make you cry).
