Re: RISC OS SouthWest Show 2018 - Saturday 24th February, 2018

If anyone would like to take a table or two for an ABUG presence I'm sure they'll have space, it's a big room! Might even be worth asking if the room is available on Friday evening too if there's interest in having more of a get together. It's a nice place to stay :-)

Re: ABug NORTH User Group meeting | 19-21 JAN 2018 | MANCHESTER *BOOKING INFO*

I arrived about 1.30pm but was told my room wouldn't be ready until 4pm! So I went off to the People's History Museum, which was really good. Now back with my feet up in the hotel room :-)

Are we meeting in the bar or the conference room?

Yup!

Should be back at the hotel 5-6pm. At some point over the weekend I want to pop across th...

Re: What's the worst that could happen?

Might be worth contacting the Centre for Computing History to see if they have any spares for sale in return for a donation to the museum. If you can go there (always a good plan!) to collect it you get a nice day out and avoid postage and ebay fees too :-)

What time do these events usually break up on the Sunday, and does anyone hang about for drinks or food? I was about to book train tickets but wasn't sure what time to get for the return!

Payment sent. I'll be there Friday-Sunday. Might even arrive Thursday to do some sightseeing as I didn't manage to do any last time I was in Manchester because Dave had me working!

I'll be bringing my laptop and probably a Pi if someone can lend me a screen.

If it is central Manchester then I might pop along. Trains from London are fairly quick.

I wouldn't be bringing kit, maybe a laptop and Pi at most, so don't take up much space :-)
