    Yes, Tony, but the avatar idea is a good one - course elsiegee and me did it anyway!
    Had a great time as always -next year it is a bit further for me but I am determined to make it, and for longer. I would love to help on the stand again.
    Missing you all already.....

    I did visit your stand Tom but you were not there :-)

    Had a good time at BETT and was really nice to pop down to the edugeek stand and say hi. BUT THEY LOST THE SILVER PEN when i went to sign the poster so my names wriiten with a biro in the circle area lol and feels so out of place ..... .

    Was nice to meet rick and pick up a microfibre cloth and lanyard. Hopefully see you guys again at BETT 2013.

    Maybe an idea would be source one of these avatar generators (The southpark ones) and imbed it on the edugeek website and then have a template for a 'I'm a edugeeker!' (Im sure Sysman would knock up a awesome template as with all his other awesome work) stick in our own avatars, print it and place it at the back of our BETT fair badges.

    If that happens then next year whoever prints the template and shows it off at the edugeek stand get a special free goodie or something.

    So, we get a secret handshake, of sorts?

    +1 for this.

    A bit late but tied up on Friday. Thanks for the food and landyard. It was good to see some friendly faces and especially when they don't want to give me a load of literature!!

    Yeh thanks to all for a great show.

    No idea how you guys did an entire week there, it was exhausting enough doing just the Thursday!

    Hope you got drunk at some point

    We get so many people confused that we don't sell anything, some even argue with us about it....

    Good to catch up with familiar faces, and meet some edugeekers I've not before!

    Then there are those ninjas, such as myself, who turn up when everyone has left.

    And are gone by the time they get back.

    That's what I get for being slack and cutting off early I guess

    Even worse in the states IIRC - they just couldn't fathom it in Denver that time

    Had a great week at BETT, but now I'm utterly exhausted. Great to put some new names to faces and meetup with everyone I've met before

    Looking forward to BETT 2013!

    Someone needs to check out the pizza options at Excel... Catering arrangements will probably have to change next year!

    Had a great time on Saturday too, glad I made the effort and went. I haven't really been using this forum extensively or for long, but it was great to have a space at BETT where I felt I "belonged". It was good to chat to some folks, especially @elsiegee40 and @witch - hello!

    Thanks especially for the pizza, and I'm wearing the lanyard today with my school ID badge (and a frog badge and a Google Chrome badge!)

    They definitely did that @zag ! The Exhibitors' party on Thursday night was clearly a good one as they all looked a little jaded on Friday
