Neat idea :-)

I put the marker down at my favourite pub but it's within staggering distance of 8BS HQ

I've added my pin to the map - another one for Spain!

I visit the UK two or three times a year, usually Staffordshire, Oxford and/or London.

My pin's been added, up in the North East of England, and it's interesting to see there are 4 other members so close to me, including one just 5 miles along the road, who I probably ride past everytime I'm out along the derwent walk on my desk :-)

I'm one of your 'neighbours', a mere 15 miles away in the west of Newcastle. Maybe it's time for a North East mini ABug.

It could very well be :-)

I don't know if you work in Software Development, but I can quite often be found speaking at Software User groups and meetups in Newcastle. I was through there just the other week at the Hainton.NET session in Grainger street (Not speaking) but was in attendence.

I'm going to be through there speaking on Blazor at some point in the next 4 months or so.

Local meeting . . . . I'm up for that :D

I reside in Newton Aycliffe - Just in case anyone had missed that.

I've alway mused of what I'd do if the lottery came good for me one week - Well, that may need a thread on its own - not enough space here :lol: But it would include something similar to to a Makers Centre - ensuring all Acorn equipment could be repaired and looked after properly :mrgreen:

Just added my location too - all alone up here in the Highlands. Looks like I'm the furthest north in the UK.

Added myself in Belgium. Granted, I might not be there all the time as I'm working a lot in Eastern Europe and will buy one of these houses in Greece to spend a good portion of the year as long as this contract is over, allowing me to work from home again, but I won't take the risk to carry a collection piece accross Europe, my Archimedes will stay in Belgium.
