Ol' Ed thinks these guys are just freetards with a sweet tooth. What specifically brought it to my attention a few days ago was this post to my crew at geowanking. I'm going to help you frigtards line-by-line here:
Apologies for cross-posting...
I'm an idiot.
I am proud to finally announce the inaugural
meetup of the nascent UK local chapter of OSGEO
I have too much time on my hands.
on Thursday 1st May, from 4.30 to 7pm (or
later if we can find a suitable hostelry)
Ok, ol' Ed likes a drink.
at the Radisson SAS Hotel
It's not a BA Hotel, but, ol' Ed has flown SAS a few times and the necklines are low.
, Stansted Airport.
Jesus muther frickin' heaven of co-ordinate translation. Yes, let's all get down to STANSTED AIRPORT (I've checked, no decent BA lounge) for the right royal shin dig of a freetard wank-off on a Thursday night. Not sure about you, but ol' Ed has better things to do. For my valley homeboys - this is like being told that the next cream cake isn't on the Embarcadero, not SFO, not even out at OAK (BART and a bus away). No, this sugar requires you to find your way to an obscure hotel outside of Redwood City. That's how ol' Ed feels. The very backwater of paleotard-dom.
The post continues!
We have been trying to get together some interest
in a UK local chapter for some time now
Well, lassie, you've hit pay-dirt here! Thank the Lord Himself you've decided on hosting in the middle of Essex otherwise perhaps nobody would come! The linked wiki page shows that at least some people have the time, money and character flaw(s) to attend. Ol' Ed only wants one thing from this disaster, the answer: WHAT DOES OSGEO DO?
Answers on a cream cake.
