Chris

With the name being  "oldchris" it might not register its name with the DNS 
server, once it gets it  IP via DHCP. And so the server does the nslookup ?

Just a  thought.

Apologies for the repetition of this  email, but I've had only two
responses to this so far, and only one of  those is able to attend,
which at the moment is making a gathering of  three.

There were quite a few ppl at the last meet who sounded like  they were
up for this again, so can I ask if anyone just hasn't responded  yet,
can you do so soon?

If I get some more interest, I'll book  somewhere, otherwise we'll make
it a normal meet and maybe try an ad-hoc  meal out somewhere, depending
on the feeling on the  night.

Thanks,

Peter.

No worries, Tony.

I wasn't  intending to guilt anyway, just catch up any stragglers.  Our
numbers  tend to fluctuate so sometimes we have large meets, other
times very  small.

If December is just on the small side, we'll play it by  ear.  I've had
at least one more possible respondee tho, so the  numbers are creeping
up.  :)

Peter.
