Meeting 1 December 2012

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am pleased to announce the first HantsLUG Christmas lecture which will take place on 1st December. This event is in place of our normal December meeting, and will take place at Southampton University. The lecture will start at 5pm (please arrive early), and is followed by a dinner served at 8pm at the Mercure Dolphin hotel, just north of Town Quay.

Our speaker, Mike Bond, who did his PhD in electronic bank security and now works to improve banking security, will be giving a talk titled "Hacking bank cards: 10 years of tools".

If you wish to come to the dinner, please choose your meal options from the menu available here:

The prices are as stated on the menu, being £14.95 for two courses or £18.95 for three course, except if you want rump or sirloin steak, which attract a £5 surcharge.  Some vegetarian options (price for these may vary) are also available. If you wish to partake in one of the options below, please let me or Ed Beckmann know and we'll arrange it with the hotel.

  • Baked Aubergine en Croute Filled with Savoury Rice and Tomato Sauce
  • Beetroot Risotto with Parmesan Crisp   
  • Spinach & Wild Mushroom Lasagne

Drinks are not included in the meal price, but the Restaurant has a well-stocked bar which will be open before the dinner. The dress code for the dinner is smart-casual or suit (not black tie).  Friends and family are welcome to attend; if you intend to bring children let me or Ed know, and we'll arrange for smaller portions if you wish, and try to get a reduced price. Please send meal options and payment to Ed Beckmann at

edward <dot> beckmann <at> gmail <dot> com

Or see me or Ed at the November meeting on Saturday. The deadline for options and payment is Saturday 17th November.

I look forward to seeing you there,

Tim Brocklehurst
