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.
I'll relay this to CCfCH..

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?

Hi all,

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.
