In some online situations new people are requested to introduce  
themselves when joining a group. That was a fine introduction. :)

Are you going to the next Python Users Nederland meeting?

It'll be held on wednesday 15 February 2012 at ABC Treehouse in  
Amsterdam. Starts at 19:30. Hosted by Maykin Media and ABC Treehouse.

If you plan on joining, put yourself on the visitor list at the  
python.org site:
Route: http://www.treehouse.abc.nl/index.php?page=location

If you can make it people will pick up the thread face to face.
