Thanks Olaf, Matt, and all the other contributors both for the new work and for consigning the old "design" to the mists of time!

Thinking about future meetings, and possible things to discuss here are a few ideas, and things which have interested me:

How we get new content onto the web site (for example the details of upcoming meetings).
Comparison of git-flow (a big support script) and github-flow http://scottchacon.com/2011/08/31/github-flow.html etc.
The rust programming language http://www.rust-lang.org.
Vim tricks (emacs, nano, any other IDE tricks included :-) ).
Sandi Metz's new book, although Ruby focussed the design principles and practices are generally applicable http://www.amazon.com/Practical-Object-Oriented-Design-Ruby-Addison-Wesley/dp/0321721330

Once the next couple of months are over I should have some time to get a talk together about something...

You may want a local nginx or something to serve up the static files when you test them.  That can make things a bit easier, but it's not required by any stretch.

I think we probably have the best looking PM site out there at this point.  :)
