Douglas Adams (1952-2001)Since 2002, the Scottish Researchers Group has held an annual meet on or around May 11th1 to celebrate the life of Douglas Adams. The date for this year's meet is Saturday May 9th and, as is traditional on these occasions, we shall be meeting in the Standing Order on George Street, Edinburgh, from 1pm. Once we've gathered we'll be heading off to the Museum Of Childhood at around 3-ish, then further pub-based shenanigans will follow.
