    Knock on the door and tell the person who opens it "sudo let me in."

    You will be presented with a stuffed penguin.

    Next you must combine the penguin with a smartphone to create the TUXDROID.

    The Tuxdroid will give you the password to enter BETT along with a list of where the good freebies are.

    Is it obvious to find?

    Easy to find yes, its opens before main shutter and is to the left its between exhibitors and main entrance.

    Go geek, then people can spot you... like a certain eg tiger...

    Very glad I went - it was a good day. My learning point for next time is to dress like a geek not like a teacher lol! Either that or wear a sign on my back saying "I am a techie with an IT degree and 13 years experience of the industry."

    And next year, I'm definitely being Network Manager, not ICT Technician! Thanks @witch for the tip!

    Absolutely, but we have to give the guys the impression that they're still in charge .... even if we know otherwise!

    Incorrect.

    @witch was referring to all of us Nerds/Geeks when she said "we".

    It doesn't matter if they're male or female, Nerds/Geeks run the world.

    Right at the end on Saturday @witch and I were walking past a stand desperately trying to get rid of freebies (pen holders).

    The guy handing them out asked what I did.

    "Network Manager" I replied.

    He needs to learn that a surprised look in response is not a good marketing tool! (I resisted the urge to knee him somewhere painful)

    I used to be a sexist like him... Then I took a knee to the groin.

    [I didn't really.]

    I was waiting for the arrow to the knee jokes to start invading Edugeek.

    Well done sir.
