    I bet that some of us can come up with a place that is in the middle. So
    everybody meets everybody half way. It would be interesting if this
    place was somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic.

    A rare event?
    In the small village of Hanney, in Oxfordshire, England, three regular
    contributors to Nav-L happened to meet up this evening in a village
    hall, at the monthly meeting of the Hanney Astronomical Society. They
    were Aubrey O'Callaghan, Clive Sutherland, and George Huxtable.
    This meeting wasn't entirely by accident, so it wouldn't be fair to
    calculate the statistical unlikelihood of its occurrence.
    Still, in view of the nature of the Nav-L mailing list, and the wide
    dispersion of its members, it must be unusual for three of them to end
    up in the same place at the same time. It seemed to me to be worth
    putting on record that it had happened.
    George Huxtable.
