We had many emails from people in Scotland asking us when the posted meeting of the UKFCUG was going to happen in Glasgow. Just to jog everybody's memories, Rick Young has sent us the agenda of the meeting on the 22nd of this month.
Two of our colleagues will be there at the meeting. Rick Young is a friend of FCP.co and kindly lets us embed the videos from his site Macvideo. Philip Johnston is another good friend who runs HD Warrior, the best place for video camera news on the internet. Both are down to present on the agenda at the Thistle Hotel this thursday night.
If you live close to Glasgow then please give this event your support, tickets are only £5 and that's worth it just to hear Philip, he doesn't hold back!
