Welcome to the SotRT newsletter - with 135 readers in 5 countries!

Barebones newsletter again. Sorry - the Anglicon rush is upon me.

Be sure to be early to get a good seat for this week's video meeting - we'll
have some goodies from the BBC's "Red Dwarf Night". I advertised it, so
there may be a large turnout.

And you certainly don't want to miss "Funk Me Up Scotty". Trust me.

On tap this time:
