Once upon a time Patrick organised a nice little post-meet-mini-meet. It
was deemed a Good Thing and, like all Good Things should be, was

It was Thursday evening. I arrived half an hour late at "De Carrousel"
cursing Dutch railways and its new and "improved" schedule to find
Jeroen B, Jos, Leo and Patrick already at the cafe. They looked innocent
enough, but I'm sure some appalling geekery had been perpetrated before
my arrival. Eelco and The Backpack arrived shortly afterward.

After stopping to get some Ben and Jerry's ice-cream we finally ended up
at Kobus Kuch, home of the best apple pie in Delft. Pie was ordered with
lashings of cream and the vultures hovered over the less hearty eaters.

Vigourous arm actions were found to be hazardous in the vicinity of
waitresses and Eelcos, and the latter was appeased with food. Patrick
got a three second ping reply from Jeroen B. The Keeper of the Edible
Lego, Eelco, produced it again and a tower was built with 28 wobbly
levels to the puzzlement of the staff. (I wonder if Michelena knows how
much entertainment she has provided us with.)
