    Yup, we've got a couple of non alcoholic cocktails for those who don't drink or are driving

    I've managed two wangle two days up there. Looking forward to it - but quite scared as my colleagues aren't coming up until the Friday and I'll be all on my lonesome

    Poor apprentices even more welcome. You can have great fun on the other stands - see all the demos and not be able to sign up for anything because you have no budget to spend.
    Not all edugeeks use their educational job title on their badges for this reason, e.g. GLaDOS Wrangler (@X-13)

    It's "GLaDOS Wrangler" this year too... I can't think of anything better.

    I was toying with something involving morality cores, but I couldn't get it to work properly. [Perhaps "Intelligence Core" would have been more appropriate considering some of the staff here...]

    That would have made it a lot easier. Getting a coach down and I hope it doesn't do the full M6 & scenic tour of London again.

    Edit: Just looked and the area map is the NEC. Maybe a sign of things to come?

    I just got it too. [I'm sure everyone did.]

    I bet our IT Co-ord is annoyed she isn't down until Friday.

    Yes... The sort of standing ovation where everyone sits on their hands to avoid launching bottles of wee and stale baked goods at him.
