    @Grumble - really, they decide at their xmas do? We've never been that organised

    Seriously though, we know what our message is this BETT, and SchoolGuardian 5 will be ready to walk off the production line in time as well - it's based on Advanced Firewall 2 & the v5 Guardian stuff, which is all about done now. It's the hard yards (docs, etc.) that we have left!

    If you want anything from us for your show guide, or if there's any more we can do to pitch in, i'd be happy to help!

    @tom_newton: Just out of interest, why £411?

    Re: EduGeek at BETT 2007

    The kind folk at Smoothwall covered the cost of various items on our shopping list ('net connection etc) as well as provided some other kit that will be subsequently donated to a school an EduGeek Members is helping out at (a charitable donation really) ...

    A full breakdown will be available closer to the event, but I must stress the point that the target was the minimum target ... every extra pound we get goes to making the stand better.

    I (on behalf of all the 'geeks) am very grateful to all donations - however large or small! Size isn't everything after all!

    Re: EduGeek at BETT 2007

    @Ric - as GD said, we just bought some stuff off the shopping list - we were ordering an internet connection (512kbit - £400 for 3 days... think about that next time you complain your broadband costs too much ) so it was relatively easy to do two. Buggers gave us no discount like.

    Note: eForce must remain one of the most difficult to deal with companies I have ever come across.

    WRT to the donation to tickmike - that's still on the cards, I had hoped to get it sorted before I fly to Kenya (tonight.. wooohoo!) but we've been snowed under due to product releases. I should hope we get him sorted pre-BETT, anyway!

    Looking forward to meeting you guys at BETT - we're still pretty "hands on" round here, and i'll be down during the stand build day, always hard work but good for a laugh!

    Thanks to all who have already taken part in our survey (see right --> ). To give us a good indication of how many of our members we might see, it would be good for everybody to cast a vote.

    As always, comments are welcomed and encouraged.

    Hope to see you guys there!

    I'm considering asking our members for one last push at the turn of the new year. Even if most of the regulars donate just £5 - £10 it would be of great help.
    I just wish the invoices I've sent out arrive before xmas so I can get you guys food for the week.

    Hungry... so hungry

    Don't worry about it too much... I'm sure we'll soldier on somehow.

    Re: EduGeek at BETT 2007

    the first two days are a problem for food whilst we set things up (monday and tuesday) ... after that I am sure Ric and I can scrounge meals out with various suppliers ... I know of a few that have already offered ... but we still need drinks and stuff during the day ...

    You don't pay high prices on Mon/Tues, The prices goes up when the show starts, thats probably to compensate for the health and safety issues on setup.

    Re: EduGeek at BETT 2007

    and be good with your H&S as my friends should be down there as part of the H&S team and I WILL hear all about your H&S slip-ups, so remember gaffa tape and PAT testing is a must! and don't do like the germans did at the motorshow, leave cars on stands with the alarms activated, and a stand collapsed next to them, set them off and they didnt reset, it took 6 hours to get hold of the person who had keys for the car to shut them up!

    I always go to the Tescos just 5 mins down the road for food before the show, much better value and non of the queues.

    The inevitable butty run may be happening!

    Still... London prices aren't the same as prices up here!
