    Are you trying to say that you've never been to an N-Power Hog Roast?

    A LAN Party ( I Think thats what they are called ) sounds like a better plan - wouldn't mind doing some gaming

    I saw this but how do they know if you actually have a party or not?

    Edit: just read the email again... it's in partnership with some place called House Party... so I guess your host might go up as a public event?

    Gates comes round with a crate of cider to see if anything is "popping off".

    He will also bring a playlist of Microsoft approved tunes to play on Windows Media Player

    Which surely is a good enough reason to have a party!

    I want a Win7 mug
    Last themed mug I bought was a GTA IV

    It's like having a barbecue in honour of your electricity supplier
    Hilarious but very true Batman. I can't see myself going to an OS party. A LAN party is something different altogether. Nothing more satisfying than blowing up a fellow Edugeeker

    Dont you have to provide pictures of the procedings afterwards?

    Because of that I wondered if I could change clothes a few times, use a selection of funny hats and moustaches and blag it

    So - for a Windows 7 party, you get a free copy of Windows 7 Ultimate and some other bits and pieces...

    Imagine what would happen if you had a 'British Gas' party...

    Free gas cylinders?
    At least the BBQ would be cheap as it'd be gas powered and you'd have a reason to be glad about smelling gas - as opposed to mild panic.
