A bunch of us did indeed gather down at dba256 on thursday, at Tibbi's instigation. He informed me when I arrived that I'd just missed George & Paula themselves, which is a darned shame. But I did get to meet, in addition to Tibbi, Anduhrew, Ed + his less-inflammatory half, and Calwatch. We oughta think about having a monthly gathering down at dba.
One thing that arose from our wide-ranging discussion was that Calwatch has now been added to M-M-M-My Pomona's gallery of rogues as an author (joining K & me, Ed, and the imperturbable John Clifford). Now, y'all treat him nice, at least to start out with.
