Oh and Mark, I could do with several sets of regular Beeb screws! Plus maybe 10 sets of keyboard screws/nuts?

Also, if you have spare Cherry Master keytops and keyswitches for F0 and F1 I'd like to buy them please!

Before I jump into the car, can somebody confirm where I'm going? I can't find anywhere that looks like the building on the hotel website.

Your link is correct jg :)

Here's a zoom ...

https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@53.70210 ... SfPVug!2e0

and if you click on the photo on the Premier Inn website it will change to match the zoomed Google image

Also the dining area in The Watermill pub is where most people tend to congregate for food / meeting up

The Car Park is spacious too

See you tomorrow :)

Have made sure both my general privacy settings and the album itself is set to public, but it still doesn't seem to want non-Facebook friends (or non-Facebook users) view it.

I'll upload the photos to the forum when I can, in the mean time I've sent you a friend request - so if you accept that, you should at least be able to see the snaps.

(No idea about CoPro progress, but it looks like a wonderful concept!).

Anyway ...

After lunch we were joined by Lee (top, first photo) and James 'Hidden Evil' (right, second photo).

Then it was time for the obligatory group photos.

Everybody posed for a 'sensible' portrait (first image) then a silly photo (second image).

Thanks for organising, I had a great time, good to see everyone again, and a couple of new faces! Sorry I had to dash off early but I came back thinking of new projects!

Still can't get over a curry and two pints for £11 :lol:
