    i visited the stand on friday and was very impressed by the team. I glad i visited as i wanted to put some faces to the names on this site. I spoke to Zero Hour for around 10 mins (so they definatelly had time to see us!) It was good to see the edugeek team as they put a lot of time and effort into edugeek and the likes of me benefits from it. I also left a small donation to help keep the stand running!
    Overall impression ? made to feel very welcome, down to earth, genuine bunch of lads! great to meetup (at last!)

    May I be the first to thank Projector of his on-stand donation. It went towards paying the very expensive catering bill we rack up (about 70 - 100 per day for all staff).

    I went Thursday and saw the stand but there were a lot of people about chatting, so came back later and there were still a lot of people about chatting. Didn't get chance to come back after that.

    I popped round on Friday with both of my bosses. They don't seem to mind me being on here now lol. Not sure who we spoke to but he seemed like a nice bloke.

    Probably not me ... I wasn't nice to anyone ... especially not those who walked passed saying "I'm sorry, I'm not interested in buying..."

    We were an information point ... and when we weren't doing that we were telling people about a free website called EduGeek.net. Sometimes people can be so cynical at tradeshows and think that people are in it for the mighty buck.

    Come to think of it ... we didn't get a Saudi Prince asking if he could buy us this year?

    I forgot to mention to those on the stand that 2 people asked why that nice American chap wasn't around this year. Well, Sun loaned us some very nice kit so it may have been a bit much to ask them to fly Art to us again.

    Next year we will print off your EduGeek name to stick on you badge if you want it ... that way you can instantly recognise fellow EduGeeks

    Oh $deity ... forget that last bit of the last post ... it sounds like I might be going back on my mumbled groan from close of play Saturday, "never again ... someone else can bloody organise it. I want some sleep!"

    Then again... DB did get me some *very* nice chocolates ... and I did have Pizza most days at one point or another ...

    I bumped into GrumbleDook early on Wednesday morning, the rest of the folk looked busy so I didn't get a chance to speak to anyone else. Tony mentioned about coming back for the USB pen but I forgot all about it! Ah well, the times I did pass and via the webcam it looked very popular so a thank you to all is in order!

    Your description of champagne truffles will stay with me for a long time...!

    It's quite a reflection on society when you explain to people that it's free, not run for profit, and it's all voluntary - they look at you like you're lying half the time - else you get someone telling you off because Serif used to send him junk mail

    Excellent idea

    I was there on Wednesday and Thursday and it was good to chat to Chris, Ric and Tony. I had the added pleasure of attending a Data Protection for Schools seminar contributed to in no small way by our founding father. It was most truly weird to see him in a suit!

    I look forward to bigger and better things next year...
