Well if you are killing birds with stones p'raps it is best that I'm not going...:)
Used to live down the road from here (On Lea road). It is a little out "in the sticks" from the town. The 88C bus is best for getting there (and will drop you off outside the center) use the 88A to get back - they are contra orbital buses. Both these buses go from the bus station and pass the train station. 88C will also take you from the center to garstand road which is about a 2 mile walk to the IBIS along a single (large) road.
They had just built a canal when I moved from there so you can use your barge and moor up if you wish (I'd like to see a pink slip for that expense going to the bursar).
If adobe are there it might be worth a visit to see if they have any ideas on reliable ways to get adobe connect (player only) installed on domain user account with limited rights (install per user my arse)
