Re: ABUG Cambridge 28th - 30th June 2019 BOOKING THREAD - NOW FULL

Hi there, The museum increased the admission fee for adults some weeks back but I hadn't noticed {being a volunteer I obviously don't pay fee when I go and also haven't worked behind the til for some time}. I'm sorry this one passed me by and thus giving late notice in price increase. Thanks, Jason

Re: ABUG SOUTH 18 to 20 January 2019 (Hampshire) BOOKING THREAD

..and a big thanks to Robert from me too. It was a great meet up as ever; there were so many people I don't think I got to have a chat with everyone but I did try :) Great to see old and new faces.

Re: ABUG SOUTH 18 to 20 January 2019 (Hampshire) BOOKING THREAD

The room also contains a large projector screen. So, if anyone has a Beeb compatible projector and cable they can bring along, I am sure there will be much fun to have with that. I have a fancy display converter thingy called an Extron DV204, which can take Beeb input and output to VGA, which most ...

Ah, yes. If the disc boxes were in a cardboard box on the floor next to the rubbish bin they would be the same ones. They were definitely rubbish. All the discs were damaged in some way.

Hi, flaxcottage - your last post reminds me. When we were putting everything back in to the classroom after the event, we noticed two or three boxes full of 5.25" floppies left on Paul1ie's desk. Were they items you were working on (or Pau1ie )? They looked to be copies rather than commercial disks....

Blimey VectorEyes! There's no need to consider whether a project is "worthy"! Having fun is what it's all about, be it working on your hardware or simply showing it off and hanging out with everyone!

Shall I put you down for a table on saturday seeing as there's a spare slot?

If anyone wants to come with kit last minute - there's spare table space across the weekend for an additional person in the classroom.

Also note we have spare table for Sunday only.

Please PM me or post here if you'd like either of the above spots.
