Christmas 2003 London Meet
Preparations for the London Christmas meet are taking place over at The Unofficial h2g2 Christmas Party 2003 page. This year looks as if it is an 'unofficial' affair; as the Italics are now diminished in number, so the 'community' has taken up the challenge of 'organising' it. Researches have begun signing up in the threads off the entry - 35 definites and 9 possibles so far. Currently the date is the 10th January, no venues or activities are yet fixed, but suggestions for both are welcome.
The purpose of this Entry is to provide a Zone for Researchers to inform each other of their free time and movements so that they can hopefully find out when and where all or some of them can meet up in the future with the minimum of inconvenience to enjoy each other's company out there in the real world.

You enter a dark cave and see many tall beings, all of whom look very threatening. The one that is clearly the leader comes up to you and says 'You have a simple choice human - die now on the blades on my Incubi Cadre or be carried into the night where you will die a
thousand deaths at the hands of my Haemonculi. There is still one more choice. You may join us'
This game is based around the Warhammer 40,000 tabletop Miniature game, but anyone interested in hacking up everyone up should join The Dark Eldar now! Plenty of openings still available!
'The Dungeon Master's laughter echoes eerily through the void. Suddenly there is a great flash of light, and he is standing tall before you!...
The thing he was carrying under his arm turns out to be an ancient book of lore which he opens and shows you a page called...

h2g2 Climate Prediction Group
This group of researchers are all running a distributed computing 'climate prediction model' utilizing the spare processing power of their computers. The aim is to improve the climate models currently used by scientists, and hence come up with better answers as to what we, as a people on our one small planet, need to do about global warming. Run by GreyDesk
We are here for people who speak in one language (or more) to, if they wish, talk to those who don't but aim to. Or do, but need practice. All languages are welcome. Hopefully you'll work a sort of swapping 'Looking for mate to jabber High German to whilst they practice Latin on me'. Subscribe and tell all what you either have or want; currently a sort of email based thing, please discuss if you have a better idea.
Since the dawn of H2G2 (and probably the net, too), Smileys have been accepted as accurate forms of communication of feelings and/or ideas. We would like to expand on the idea of the smiley, just a little. We call ourselves CAVE [The Campaign to Allow Violent Emoticons]. Our mission is to make violent, explosive, destructive, or otherwise cruel and unusual smiley images a part of H2G2.
