In terms of the LRUG BoF session at NFJS eXchange, details are available 
at the mentioned link above http://nfjs-exchange.com/lrug-bof.  All BoF 
sessions take place on Thursday evening, August 30th beginning 8:00pm.  
It would be great to see LRUG regulars there, all you have to do is 
register to attend.  However, if you would like to attend the whole 
conference you will have to book a ticket.  We are offering £100 off 
each ticket.  LRUG-ers just have to quote *NFJS-LRU613* when registering 
and it will be automatically deducted.  Group discounts will still apply.

We hope to see you there!
