Hello all, thanks for attending last night, hope you all got something out of it. It was great to get feedback.
Some resources as promised:
Mikado Method (downloadable book) - http://bit.ly/dckcPN
Working with legacy code (dead tree book) - http://bit.ly/18XBAOz
VS code metrics addin - http://bit.ly/18uxYQM
http://www.refactoring.com/ (the catalog is the good oil)
Article on why we should pay down technical debt - http://bit.ly/11HMtkv
Not necessarily related to refactoring or testablity per se, but some other good things I've read lately:
97 things every programmer should know - http://bit.ly/5Syigi
The Morning Brew - http://blog.cwa.me.uk/ - a daily roundup of good, .net centric blog posts. There seems to be more .net content in here than on CodeBetter and devlicious these days.
Erik Dietrich - writes some good stuff on unit testing - http://bit.ly/15YKkjV
Cheers all, see you at another meetup shortly!

Hi Ellery. I assume you mean wheelchair accessible ... access is via lift to a secure floor and I don't recall any steps or ledges on the route to our meeting space. Toilets might be an issue - the ones we have access to are only accessible by stair. Hope this is helpful, Bevan.
Hi Bevan - sorry this is why one shouldn't ask questions when half asleep ;-)
I was actually meaning to check that the building hasn't been closed from the earthquake
Oh! :-) I've not asked that exact question - but I have been coordinating with both Stickney and Joel from Inov8 and they've not mentioned any issues.
I've checked with Joel - the building has been inspected and deemed safe.
