I think we can easily gate crash the local LUG meetings, especially if we 
spread our selves about, and offer talks!

The Silicon Corridor (Berkshire) have monthly meetings in a pub in Reading on 
a Wednesday which may be a good spot for the occasional social meeting.

Hampshire LUG have a good venue at the University of Southampton every other 
month on a Saturday, they have two rooms, one for talks and one for a 
meeting. They are currently holding a joint meeting with the Surrey LUG at 
University of Surrey at Guildford on the alternate Saturday.

Surrey LUG have both pub and bring-a-box meetings once per month, one of the 
BaB meetings being shared with Hants-LUG. As with Hants the University is a 
good meeting venue.

There are two LUGs in the Oxford area, don't know much about them.

If we were able to aim to have one meeting per-month we could gate-crash the 
LUGs if we spread ourselves around over the three active groups - anyone in 
Oxford know if they are active?

Next we need to get a contact at Oracle, Uni of Reading or someone other 
central location who can hold meetings for us. The Reading Remix is an open
