I'm going to have a go at adding automated room booking to the virual
venues server. All the hard stuff (authentication, DB access etc) is
already in the server so it should not be too hard.

I'm planning something very simple, a booking page that lets you
view existing booking or select a room, start time and duration. And add
a listing of todays bookings to the to room descriptions and the room

If anyone else is working on something similar let me know.
