Hi All,

Apologies for the long silence.  Although no longer living in Berkshipre, 
I do have a little more time on my hands these days and am hoping that we 
can start a revival of this list at least?

Website and meetings would be a good follow up.

In the mean time, I'll start passing through the group level spam:

* UKUUG talks on Request Tracker
* Discount on UKUUG Summer Conf. in Birmingham

Hope you're all well.
