Pop me down for a walk in, probably just the Sunday.

If anyone wants spares / goodies etc. bringing along to save postage, please PM me here, or email / Facebook etc.

Thanks!
All done mate. :)

Tomorrow's payday, so I'll sort out payment over the weekend. :)

I was double-booked in Cambridge, so only managed one day.

Yeah I should be there, it fortunately avoids Lesley's birthday the week before and my brother's wedding the week after.
Yep the date is much better for me, the last 2 i've missed as its my other halfs birthday on the 18th.

Please put me down for one of the walk-in places.
Would have loved to bring some kit, but I'm late to the party, as usual.

Thanks,

Andy.

Hi Alex,

I don't think I'm going to be able to make this meeting after all :(

It's possible I might be able to come up as a no-kitter on the Saturday, but I won't know until much closer to the time.

For now best take me off the list, so that someone else can have the space in the main room.

Thanks

Dave

I have a vague recollection that someone asked me to bring something to this ABUG. But I cannot remember who or what. So I will need to be asked again.
There is so much wonder in the universe; why should you want to imagine that there is more?

Probably not me, but would there be anybody with better eyesight than me who would be able to get my battery-corroded A5000 working? I've cleaned the PCB and removed and replaced the battery, but the hardware is failing to detect any IDE drives.

Excellent, bring your Atom, and we can see if we can get it going (if you haven't by then).

Shame, I was going to quiz you about setting up a couple of gotek's, I guess I'll have to put in a bit of effort and read the web pages.
