I'm surprised nobody else has commented on our lack of meeting tonight 
:( but maybe people missed the melb.pm emails because they were filtered 
as spam: http://log.perl.org/2009/10/blackholes.html

A reminder that all are welcome tonight.

Now, Barcode (http://www.eatability.com.au/au/melbourne/barcode/) was 
chosen at random from a big list.  If it isn't suitable (usually a meal 
and beers) then we might go somewhere else.
