Am I too late?

Don't necessarily need a table, just put me down as a no-kitter :)

Great, I'll take the half table then and can bring me laptop.

I'll be there all day Saturday, but not Sunday if that's OK?

Perhaps we can invite Tricky for a table so he doesn't have to stay somewhere in the hall, all alone :wink:
Otherwise I can upgrade my half table for a full table, that gives a bit more space for an Atom and a laptop.

I'm blown away that you're travelling from the US for this :) It's a fun weekend with lots of friendly faces so delighted to have you along.
Can I assume you will be along for the entire weekend?

If there is still a full table available can you put me down for it or a half table if it is gone. I will bring some of the Acorn System stuff that I have been working on. I also have a Master with a Pi Tube Direct and would love some help from someone who knows how to build a FLEX boot disk. Fri, Sat and Sunday Morning.

Hi Jim.
there is one full table left across the weekend.. so that is now yours.

There are one or two Dragon enthusiasts here (which I believe could run FLEX??) so perhaps they may be able to assist.

...so that leaves a few no-kitter places left and a full and half table available for sunday only. Nearly full!

Please can I have a half table for Sunday. I would like to come and pop in on Saturday, too. Thx to everyone for letting me 'gatecrash' towards the end of Sunday last time. I live just round the corner from the CCfCH so if anyone needs any items that they cannot easily bring that I may well have please let me know. I have an interesting RiscPC from ARM ltd. which I want Peter/or someone to have a look at it...I think it was an old development machine cos it has Linux on it...I think and a sticker saying ARM Development system...or the like. I have rescued lots of Acorns from Cambridge area! Some quite interesting specimens.

If you want RiscPC power switches I'll be giving them out along with A3010/A3020 eject switches. Come see me if I'm about.

I hope I'm not too late for a table.

Cheers all,

James

I live just around the corner. I did not realise I would have to book so far in advance otherwise I would have booked all 3 days. :( I'll arrange with Jason to bring as much of my acorn stuff prior to Friday if possible and store out the back somewhere. If there are any last minute cancellations/no shows I could fill the spot or just be a no-kitter for the day, as you suggest. Would like to join you all on Friday night after hours if planning to meet somewhere or could pop in Friday as well if not to crowded. Of course I'll understand if you have to turn me away Fri/Sat since there are lots of people who have traveled a very long way to get here. No worries since I live just round the corner.

Be sure to see you all Sunday, anyhow, cheers!

I rescued all the old Risc PCs from ARM ltd. just recently. Got stacks in my room. Only a couple of interesting ones which I will be sure to bring along.

Cheers all.

Hi,

I live just around the corner. For food at lunchtime you can go to ASDA or M&S or B &M, just cross the bridge over the railway and turn left. M&S also has a cafe.

For restaurants there is Frankie and Bennie's and Pizza Hut (I think they do delivery but it's so close!) - over the bridge and turn right.

All are like a couple of hundred meters walk only.

Thanks for booking me Half table on Sunday.

Can you put me as a 'no kitter for' Friday and Saturday?

Ah, blast, been away on holiday and missed getting a table for this :(
I couldn't make the last one due to "family incompatibility"
