I didn't have women. Or sexytime. :(
If you try to look through Windows, you can see what the person is doing.
If you try to look through a Penguin, it WILL bite you.

I think this needs to be rebooted for 2013.

Anyone agree?

Sure ... just needs numbers to make it worthwhile and consensus on a location ...

After having been to similar UG type events in the past I think it needs an overnight option with cheap accommodation with stuff over two days ... gotta make it worthwhile for people travelling a long way ...

I'm still in.
If you need help ask a professional, then act upon their advice.
Anything less and you're just wasting peoples time.

I agree, it needs to be in a central location.

Reading or somewhere near there? It has quite good travel links.

There again, looking back through the comments, Bristol would be equally good.

Never the less, lets get this ball rolling :)

Perhaps it would be helpful, nearer the agreed time, to indicate the proposed topics for discussion and the expected level. 
This might help newbies in deciding whether or not to attend.  It's very useful to venture into something a bit deeper than one's present ability, but too deep can be very off-putting.

Hello again all,

So it is definitely now 2013, and with my daughter having a midday nap I thought I would have a look around the ol' forum and see what needed my input (its everything right?)

So what do people think? is there still interest?

This keeps coming back up, but whilst there does seem to be a certain level of interest I remain sceptical that it could be organised in a way where a venue could be settled on .. the main forum members are just too spread out.

Maybe I'm wrong though ?

I think the idea of a get together is a good one, but I think Mark's right in so far as the members are too spread out, even though we live on a small island the distance between myself and Mark for example is roughly 450 miles so even a midway point would be a long journey, also timing would be a factor, we all have busy lives and selecting a time to suit everyone would be difficult to say the least

I think Keith has a fair point here, I know from my own standpoint that I would probably feel out of my depth unless it was to be more of a social/recreational event.

Perhaps it would be more appealing to some members if it coincided with some other event ie Blackpool Illuminations, A day at the races or some other national event.

Just my thoughts

If you can keep your head while all around are losing theirs, then you're not quite grasping the situation

Social / recreational definitely, I'd only be turning up for the beer ..  :o , but maybe more of a tek expo than seaside lightshow ??

Just as a matter of interest, there is a service called the "Mega-Bus" that runs from Cardiff to London, and if you book 2 weeks or so in advance a return ticket is only 8 .. and the late return leaves London at 11pm, so you can get a pretty long day out of it ...

Looking at the website this is a national service, so a return from Manchester just for example is only 9 return.
- does sort of make London the fairly cost-effective from a travelling point of view, albeit a venue might be more interesting to come by.
(that said, West-end pubs tend to be fairly empty mid-week evenings ..)
