    Cool Who is going to NAACE next week?

    Just interested to know what geeks are coming to NAACE conference Thursday 8th - Saturday 10th March? Hoping there are a few faces I want to buy a drink for @EduTech for example

    Edit: I don't have long enough to list everyone I need to buy a drink for... or a wallet big enough!

    I'm there on Thursday-Saturday but not staying over as I am fairly local and on Friday I have an existing commitment ... going to a charity dinner for Ups'n'Downs where guest speaker is Alan Shearer ... but will be back early on Saturday for the AGM, etc.

    I am also hanging on for the TeachMeet in the afternoon on Saturday.

    Excellent look forward to seeing you Tony, particularly for the TeachMeet (We are the principle sponsors)

    I will try and come a long and have a look depends how busy I am on those days, free at the moment but when I return to UK all hell breaks loose and I may be doing something

    If I am however doing something, and I am in Birmingham then I will drive over the Leicester and have a drink with a few of you

    Ok? does that sound good enough

    James.

    Free Beer!

    Just wanted to make clear: was asking who was planning on being there over the 3 days, it is a paid for event to get in I believe, if your are there would love to meet folks for a drink...

    Thursday evening is a buffet followed by the usual get together in the bar afterwards ... don't know whether the bar is open to visitors too but we can ask.
    Friday evening is the Gala Dinner and awards (I am not there due to the Charity night as already mentioned)
    Saturday has the Teachmeet in the afternoon, which I am pretty sure is open to all ... can't see any restricts on that.

  10. Thanks to GrumbleDook from:

    But, I actually came here to say that I read that like the Portal 2 Space Personality Core. [complete with auto-tune distortion.]
