Don’t worry about the time on the museum web site. ABug members can still get in after 4pm.

Have a great time everyone, I'm fairly sad to be missing it ( :cry: missing a chance at Robert's (much needed) bench psu is salt in a wound! :-({|= )

but I'm confident there's a load of stardotters that would lovea healthy bunch of pics if possible!!)
So many projects, so little time...

Hi, can we pop Stephen R & Debs (who some of you met tonight) down for Saturday as no-kitters?

(I know strictly speaking there's only one space left, but they should only be hanging around until tea time ish).

Ta! :)

The caption for that last photo should be:
Computers? Nobody told me anything about computers. I’m just here for the crisps.

Was just there for the day but it was very productive. The Museum staff were great as usual. I managed to archive some real rarities. The snag is that the more I do the more I find there is to do. :?

The temperature inside was bearable, especially with a fan blowing all the time. Outside was very warm indeed. Sarah's idea of ice cream seemed the way to go. :lol:

Met lots of folks and talked 'geek', which is what it is all about really.

I've seen two atoms so far...

I'm now just queuing at the entrance ready for today's fun!

EDIT... just noticed opening time is 10am on their website... so I may have been a little keen getting here early :lol:

I'm fairly new to this forum so even though I feel like I "know" some of you in some small, online way, I can't actually put a name to any of the faces in these pictures :lol:

Enjoy your last day over there!

Just to say thanks to everyone for making Mike and I so welcome today in Cambridge. Fantastic setting as well!

I’m sure after a few more Abugs will actually start to remember some names as well 😂

Thanks for all the advice given today as well.

I'm not there today, but here are a couple of bonus shots from yesterday that I left out originally. I've added an Atom since that was requested, and I had to delete my original upload of Mr. Sideburns' RGB hack board, as I accidentally captured his phone over his shoulder while he was texting someone, and I wasn't happy uploading that.

Thanks for spotting this. I got your message shortly after I had left and so had time to go back and collect it.

Hi folks. I'd like to quickly say what a great weekend I have just had.

It was great to meet everyone and even though I'm a newbie at these events, the welcome I received was very warm and friendly. I'm just sorry I didn't get a chance to come over and say hi to everyone.

I have to give a huge thank you to all of you who were involved with the updating of the data centre and the ramfs ROM. I believe that I was assisted by over half of the people in the room at one time or another, and as I'm terrible with names, it would be hopeless for me to attempt to list you all, but you all know who you are.

Looking forward to the next one in the South, which I hope to attend.

Both of us had a great time. Didn't get a lot done. I am not good at working in the heat. But really great to catch up with everyone.

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

Looking forward to the next one...
