Sorry. At the risk of annoying Jason a bit more, but, Diminished, the full table is absolutely yours.

I am off work this week and likely to arrive early on Friday. So I am happy to help with setting up and purchasing the snack mountain.

Re: Acorn World and ABUG meetup, Cambridge 20-22nd September 2019.

Given Simon's unfortunate cancellation, please could I upgrade my half table to a full one.

Thanks

Jason,

If there is still a half-table available, please can I take it.

Also, if it is not too late, please can I be added to the restaurant booking for the Friday night.

OK. So this was eminently predictable. Jason, please can you put me down as a no-kitter and hold me in reserve for any table space if any becomes available.

Nope. Econet goes in the attic. (Which, annoyingly, is still occupied by my son. About time he moved out.)

Re: Starting a new workshop build

So I ordered some furniture. I thought it would come as flat-packs. Well some of it did and some of it didn't. We received two huge pallets early on Friday morning, one of which would not fit in the garage. 58823955913__0C2A4E80-697E-472F-9E3E-BB503930DBB0.jpg Spent most of the day getting it all in...

I don't think that there have been any events in Scotland in the last few years. At the moment, the only regular (8-bit focussed) events are in Cambridge and in Camberley in Surrey. We used to have regular events in the Midlands and in the North. At present, however, there doesn't seem to be anyone ...

Starting a new workshop build

Finally persuaded Mrs JudgeBeeb to allow me to clear out the garage in order to make space for a workshop. This is what I am starting with. Not yet sure how I am going to deal with the fridge and the tumble-dryer.

A big thanks to Mark and Jason for organising this despite not being able to attend themselves.
