Let me ponder dates a bit longer, it's a fairly crazy summer here

Travel costs aren't the issue so much as time, unfortunately. I'll ponder dates 
(per above).

Following both lines of thought simultaneously: it's easy for me to book 
entirely appropriate locations in West Cambridge (Wolfson, Churchill, the 
Computer Laboratory), but that's annoyingly far from the rail station and 
useful pubs. I'll chat with some folks institutionally more central and see 
what I can come up with there.
