Sorry guys, I've been meaning to send out the e-mails, I've just been
caught up with a few things this week.

I've called the Rhino already, and they are find with having us on the
23rd. I told them we'd be about 10 people, but they said we can call
them the Friday before the weekend if we have crazy turnout, and they
can even ask extra servers to come in.

I've given a bit of thought about the venue, and I think the Rhino may
be a better venue for socialization and light discussion, as it is
quite a large place, whereas the Linux Caffe is more conducive to more
in-depth discussion, as it's a bit quieter. To get a bit more turn-out
initially, I'm favouring the Rhino. Plus, it's on the Queen streetcar
line, which makes it a bit more accessible for downtown people. I'm
not feeling any strong opposition to the Rhino, but let me know if
either of you have strong objections.

I have an account on pugs, but if either of you have an account as
well, I have the ability to include all of our posts on the TorontoPUG
page. I'm writing up a post as we speak, to publish as soon as we
agree on the location.
