You can be "with us" this time (& you're -what- 6 hours earlier than us?), we'll have both a chat here & a twitter thread...

Yeah, but can I get a ham and swiss cheese crepe from the street vendor? Take the Louvre Underground exit when the rain chases me in from the out of doors ramblings?

well, the crêpe is not really a problem, but our meetup is actually not too close to the Louvre, so i recommend you take the Goncourt or République underground exit... (and i hope we ALL avoid the rain ! )

I just signed a new one (for a new job), checked all the pages, recto, verso, the fine print, all that I could, no sign of such a clause.
I'm off to check all the laws pertaining to this, and maybe also see if I can see something in the MR Wiki

As to what could be more important, we have invited over some 20 to 30 people to spend the weekend gaming, I don't want to ruin the party by not being there

yes, you go and check all those, i am sure there is a clause somewhere which says you must come to all the meetups.

*sigh* next we will have filip claiming that a weekend of sun in barcelona is more tempting than an evening of geekery in paris... non mais qu'est-ce qu'il faut pas entendre... (amusez-vous bien avec vos jeux ! mais ayez une petite pensée pour nous quand même....)
