I agree, extra venues are always handy.
So I'd not be too concerned right now - This shouldn't really detract from the regulars in N. Devon having a meeting, and you never know, if you get 'net connectivity and they get 'net connectivity in the LH, then you might just be able to hook-up!I do now have mobile internet, however its quite limited on quota and highly unlikely to be capable of conferencing. Unless Holsworthy has decent 3G on Orange but even so quota is still a problem.
I have the same issue (as do a couple of others in the LUG I believe). I have a Vodafone 3G modem which works reasonably well in Paignton (I'm lucky if I can get a GPRS signal at home!) but then I also have a limit on my allowance.
We have talked about the wifi internet access up here, but it was unanimously decided it wasn't worth it for just a couple hours plus we have to pay for it. Time goes fast enough in the meeting already, I know I wish it was longer ;)
I'm surprised they don't make the wifi available for free. It's not as if Internet access costs much these days and they'd probably offset the cost of the wifi in extra visitors.
I'd also say if it doesn't feel like you have enough time, why not extend the meeting by an hour or so.
Personally I think the 3 hours or so we have in Paignton is about right, sometimes we do meet earlier if we need to do anything specifically, but if we're just having a general meeting then 3 hours is about right (for me anyway).
