Dear Terry, I'm very sorry indeed about the cancellation of the
consultants' meeting on Friday.

It was supposed to start at 14.00 GMT but by 14.30 only a couple
of non-house consultants had arrived and we thought it was too late to
start on the Agenda because we had a following meeting. So there was some
discussion until about 14.45 GMT and then we left. I sent out the
message about rescheduling around that time - not in advance.

I think one reason for the thin attendance was that last week
we have had long delays from listproc so my original reminder of the
meeting on 17th was late (and I was also rather late sending it out).

Apologies again - and we will leave a notice in future similar cases. We
do very much appreciate the fact that you get to BioMOO meetings and hope
you won't be totally put off doing it again!
