Please add me to the event.

I will be there Friday through Sunday.

Happy to share a table - I won't have too much kit (Master, CUB (or LCD) and laptop).

I booked a room (a couple of days ago with the sale code :mrgreen: ) so I'd like a full table to put all my test/repair gear on, please.

thanks,
Jason

Hi - I'd like to come along. Don't know if I'll be staying over, but I'd certainly like to attend one of the days. It was nice meeting a bunch of Acorn enthusiasts last time - I'd like to see how all the crazy projects are progressing.

Cheers,

Robin

I've just seen the video. It would be great if you could bring a Vectrex along and a copy of Player 2.

Ditto. Watched it while cooking dinner. Fish and chips. Also interested. First Vectrex I saw was BigEds at Hampshire a couple of years ago.

But this will be a working Vectrex!! (I can always bring mine again if anyone fancies a bit of mixed-signal debugging with some HT nearby. I reckon the digital section is fine, so something's wrong with the tube, or the HT, or the analogue output stuff.)

Re: ABUG SOUTH 22 to 24 November 2019 (Hampshire) BOOKING THREAD - NOW FULL - but accepting names for reserve list

Post by JudgeBeeb » Mon Sep 30, 2019 8:19 pm

As can be seen, we now have 30 names down for the event. Last time, we had about that number attend and there was plenty of space for everyone (a big change from some venues). However, the problem now is we actually don't have sufficient tables to accommodate more people. (And I will be very grateful if anyone who has some folding tables could bring them along.)

As there will likely be people dropping out at the last minute, I will be accepting names onto a reserve list.

Please add me to the reserve list. I'd come Friday night and stay through to Sunday if a slot opens up.

You are now added to my reserve list.

Unfortunately, I am unable to edit the list at the top of this thread. When I click on submit, I get this:

1024MAK (or any of the other admins), do you know what the problem is?

I expect the column holding each post is limited to around 8000 characters at the DB level.
I thought something like that might be the case, but it will not let me even save an edit that consists of just deleting some characters.

Possibly something to do with the subject line. If you make it shorter does that make a difference?

Yep. I can't edit posts in this topic either. So possible subject length as you recently made that longer, but if you cant edit it then might need a db admin to sort, as in Daniel.

I can't get it to change either - I'm not sure what's gone wrong. I'm a bit loathed to actually delve into the database itself as my "untanglemysqlmess" skills aren't very high... Let me do some googling.

edit: Grumpy extension. Disabled it. Behaving now :)

I was about to say looks like the default code was varchar(100), and wondered if that had been increased but not increased somewhere else. But you already fixed it.

Edit: Yep edit works for me to.

I will not attend this meeting but if you also want name badges for this meeting then I am happy to make them. I will send a PDF or OpenDocument to Robert (or somebody else) who can print and cut them. Jason has badge holders from the previous ABUG that can (probably) be reused.

For me these badges were a great help for recognizing StarDot members.

That would be really nice if you could do this. I assume that it wouldn't take you so long as you have already done most of the work from last time.

I have 2 large foldable tables in my van that I can bring if that helps.

Thank you. That would be of great assistance.

We were very much dependent on people bringing some tables last time and I will be putting out a further plea for tables nearer the time.
