Hi all,
During the Tips and Tricks session, the question of negative dimensions in families was raised and I mentioned that Tim Waldock had given a session that included the answer to this. I have attached here an excerpt from his handout, giving all of the details of how to make this work.

Hello Toby,

I joined the RUGS group a little while ago but have yet to attend a meeting, but would like to do so in the next meeting, however I find it dificult to find information on when that might be. When I go to the Board index>Main>Meetings area I'm greeted with information, it seems from 2009 and even 2007, I'm wondering if there could be a notice that might map out upcoming meetings so that so planning can be made with regard to upcoming and future meetings.

I'm sorry I haven't been to a meeting previously as probrably this information would be issued at the last current meeting, however it would be very useful if there was an area that you could go to that perhaps looked like a calendar to allow a bit of planning.
