Made it along yesterday and had an interesting time. Nice to meet like minded folk and see Goteks in action. There was definitely something up with the power - one power supply went pop and another gently wisped smoke!
It was also a shame that after a herculean effort to get workbench up on the only machine with a disk drive that my disk was not recognised. Checked when I got home and works fine so guess it must be something to disk drive alignment?
Thanks to all the guys for hosting and organising and already looking forward to the next one!
