      I'm staying with my Mum in Buxton while this is on, but I think it might cause a diplomatic incident if I disappear to Manchester, much as I'd like to

      Anyone else planning to come? It's nicer to give out freebies to people we know and want a chat

      We will be there as you know

      Will have all sorts of treats on our stand this year.

      Come check out the new Monarch range, see our 12U portable rack system with a selection of our servers, and of course our very tasty Project Touch

      I'll be speaking on the panel about women in IT, as well as being around the stand. No facepaint this time though ...

      Is there something you're not telling us? I always harboured a suspicion, but never actually expected it to be true..

      Yeah - slightly ironic at least that it is a man speaking about women in IT.....
      (if he is a man, of course)
      (and not a tiger)
      (yes, of course that's what I meant )
