    Sorry to say it's the first I've heard of it. Wouldn't mind going, but too short notice I fear.

    Trying to sort out going on 29th, but doubtful. The smoothwall stand is safe from me raiding it again for Smoothies.

    I registered to attend last year but managed to break my foot! That put pay to my travel plans so didn't go.
    Be warned though, you will get a whole host of cold calls following your registration... unless I have been mega unlucky!

    It usually runs for the same period as InfoSec and you can use your ticket to get between them. Obviously not this year ...

    I like going along to harrass some companies for not giving Edu discounts as they think "local government discount should do you fine" and "I know that you probably haven't heard of ITIL but our support desk solution will allow you to meet all your needs for it." (yes ... 2 quotes from suppliers last year). At least at InfoSec you get met with "You work with schools? They are too hard for us to work with ... just think, a few hundred people trying to break your network from the inside (shudder)" (and yes ... another quote ... this time from an IDS provider).

    I wish I could go as it looks really good - but the schools won't pay and I can't afford to go on my own

    Yep I'll be going on the wednesday.

    Girlfriend is working there I think and she says they are sponsoring the bar!

    I also write a helpdesk piece of software so would be nice to get some ideas from the show.

    It's free... or are you on about travel costs?



    I'm trying to get the HT to let me go both days. That way I can do Service desk on one day and Infosec on the other.

    I don't/can't drive. So the chances of getting a lift are slim at best.

    Unless you're open to the idea of a chav powered rickshaw.
