We had an very nice unannounced surprise - a very pleasant person from
Goldman Sachs visited (Yan Fitterer), placed £40 in the kitty, and produced
a "pub quiz", which several people seemed to have fun with. His part of GS
are recruiting, and hoped to find a better class of candidate at our social

Ilmari and I (and probably others) thoroughly approve of people sponsoring
the kitty, and would like it to happen more often. We'll drink to this!

(If banking is not your thing, it looks like Gumtree are trying to recruit
another contractor. But they haven't yet been persuaded to sponsor the kitty.)
