Re: Release Day Pool (just for fun)

I still stand by 18th December, but it turns out that must be for the auction going live. I think you'll see the first truly wild ones scampering off to dig burrows in the snow 22nd January, 11:23 GMT.
We should ask for a webcam to be set up outside RaspberryPi Towers for the event.

It's a shame the profile info page you can reach by clicking on the poster doesn't have room for a large picture. Also that it can't point to the "introduce yourself" post.
