Oops, it seems I need to phill in my address book.

:shock: That's terrible, it's worse than the jokes junk I come out with :shock: [-X :lol:

Anyway, I got home just after 18:30 and then the two dogs said hello to me for about 5 minutes, as they had last seen me last Monday morning.

Thanks to Alex for arranging it all, and thanks again for the mug =D> :D =D>

Had a great time and with the cooperation of the m25 and m1 in both directions, good journeys. I also learned that I have forgotten how to programme without the aid of a good debugger!
Thanks for organising ita and sorry I can only remember one name at a time (usually mine, but not always).

Thanks for organising this Alex - the mug was a very nice touch! Good to meet people and have a chat, hope I didn't disrupt too much project progress.

Just a few photos from me, here, and then many more photos from the afternoon visit to the nearby retrocomputing museum.

Those Virtuality machines look incredible! I guess they were designed to be put into arcades.

They were indeed - I remember making a pilgramage to the Trocadero in London to have a go. Around 1991 apparently:

Did anybody get home and find they had an extra mobile phone charger? I seem to have misplaced mine, I've just come from clambering through the car checking all the crannies.

Maybe it's in a nook instead?

I finally got around to trying out a micro version of something we were chatting about.
Now I see why people use those mini prototyping circuit boards, still my version worked well enough to prove that the controllers for Warlords would be possible!

Now, I really must get back to Phoenix!
