Anyway, if you're here, you've obviously figured it out. You can view public posts without an account, but as public posts will soon be a thing of the past, I highly reccommend you get an LJ account of your very own. (It's easy. Go here.)
As for our first real meeting - there will be a more coherent update when I'm not falling asleep on my feet, but it looks like Mondays at 5:30pm came out as the favourite for regular and semi-regular meetings, our next regular meeting being planned for the week after next. Which is not to say, of course, that all events will be held Mondays, so even if you can't make meetings, other things will be possible.
And another, repetitive reminder that if you haven't paid your membership fee by the end of the week, your name will be taken off the official membership list. This means, unfortunately, that some screening events will be off-limits, due to some pesky international copyright laws that boil down to us only allowing members into showings of licensed media. The clubs package is due on the 27th, at 2:30pm, so that's our deadline. You can join at any time, of course, but the more names we have at time of submission, the bigger the budget we're awarded, so paying now is in everyone's best interest.
If you would like to pay, but couldn't make it tonight (as the second meeting is looking less feasible), please respond to this e-mail, or post to the LJ community, with a convenient time and place at which one of us might meet you and collect your fee. If this is totally impossible, and you still want to pay, and you really, truly *want* to join, we can cover a limited number of people on IOU until our next event. But as this is on a case-by-case basis, we'll see.
And now it's midnight, and I'll bid you all good night.
