He can sleep on my couch, I'll feed him on a sugar+milk solution, and if we
leave 3 hours before each talk we can get there by foot - that way he can
see a bit of the city.  If he questions our hospitality I'll take away his
sugar-milk.  Lastly, I'll stand over his shoulder while he sends some emails
to others saying what a great time he's having with IFSO.

ok, a serious answer:

It'll be more than that, but I'm just going to cover it myself so that
everything stays dead simple.

I'm not extending this offer to everyone y'know ;) and this won't happen
again for a few years.

A venue is beyond by ability and means though, so we need a *Soc favour for
