    That is the most poorly written announcement I have ever read. If I did not know any better I would say that Edugeek is responsible for all those 419 emails.

    It's that time of year again when we at EduGeek in asscociation with Smoothwall, who have kindly sponsored this years event, ask you once more to make you way up, down and across to Preston in Lancashire, for a day of informed talks from companies specilasing in education and other areas, socialising and meeting the site sponsors and being pamprered by us and our event sponsor Smoothwall.

    This year we shall once more be holding the event in the beautiful environs of the University of Central Lancashire\u2019s Westleigh Conference Centre, located in a fully modernised 19th century manor house on the outskirts of Preston. The venue is just a 5 minute drive from the Ibis hotel it means attendees who choose to overnight get to spend less time travelling and more time socialising. As always, the conference is free as we shall keep you up to date on speakers as and when we can confirm them.

    Tickets will be available from [week] – Remember its free to attend

    Confirmed speakers are:
    Microsoft - Windows and Server 8
    Frambozenbier - An introduction to the Raspberry Pi
    Rick Byers - The EU Cookie Law
    Adobe - Adobe CS6
    NET-CTRL - High speed netwrok backbone and best practice
    SmoothWall - Current internet security issues

    Seeing as this is a site for “professionals”, maybe one of them should attempt to use a spell checker!

    It's the only way to do it! As Ric went off to live in the big city it's just me left to organize everything here, so we are a little pushed this year in getting things organized. We are back on track though.
    Seriously though, it looks like it's going to be a cracking conf (as always) and we look forwards to seeing you all again If you have never been then I recommend you take a look at Ric's pics from last years event: EduGeek Conference 2011 - a set on Flickr or read EduTechs write up of it here: EduGeek Conference June 2011 in Preston « (James Evans) EduTech's Blog

    Because it requires an apostrophe to denote correct ownership as explained here...

    grammatical number - How do you show possession with the word "year" ("year&#39s" vs."years")? - English Language and Usage

    As founder of Pedantic Geeks, I'll step in here. Dos Box needs to get one of us to proofread his announcements After all, we're in our own group for debating on here

    I'll have to apologise, we've had an issue with the template for this announcement for the past day, and it reset to the 'rough' version (again!) when posted. It should be all correct now.
