    It all so quiet...shhhh...shhhh

    Well, what can I say. More life in a tramps vest (see what I did there?) perhaps? Due to the weather, Euston getting closed and the general shutdown of the nations travel infrastructure the stand, and indeed, most of BETT has been horribly quiet, which is a shame. But it also means there are more freebies and mugs etc left for the other days
    Anyway, I hope we see you when (and if) you manage to get here in the next few days.
    Oh, and all the stand staff are now sat around eating retro sweets that ICTNUT has managed to blag, although he's kept the Space Dust for himself!

    Lucky other members of ULCC are manning the stand instead of me then!

    I would like some Space Dust though......

    Oh that is a shame but I guess not surprising.

    Unfortunately I have had to cancel my trip to BETT this year so won't be coming to say hello and eat pizza...perhaps I should have sympathetic pizza at work

    Keep up the good work!

    @Dos_Box:

    All the more for us when we come down on Saturday with the gang from the north.

    The southerners always come to a complete standstill when a little of the white stuff comes along.

    Not us northerners, webman an myself are still in short sleeved vests and shorts even when outside and there is 2 foot of the white stuff plus black ice.

    Had an eventful day though when we started recieving alerts like crazy this morning from all the servers, hehe!! turned out to be a faulty electrical component which had the UPSs in a tizz, all the servers went offline but the smell was superb........bakerlite Mmmmmmm.

    I'll be down on the 7:00 flight from Newcastle in the morning and back down again on the midnight express with Bossman et al on Friday night / saturday morning.

    See you all then.
