How busy will it be? I don't like queues or being squashed in crowds of sweaty virgins(I had a bad experience once).

Was a good day indeed, pitty I had to leave early due to unforseen circumstances.

Putting a face to people on here was also good and meeting Jeff Minter was deffinatly a im not worthy moment and his sheep poo was very good.

A couple of things from the Amiga section ended up in the wrong box or got moved around but I'm pretty sure everyone's stuff is accounted for now.

The worst problem was people moving machines and joysticks about the some of the guests disregard for people kit, i.e using my mouse mat as a beer coaster and beer glasses stood on top of my open PPC Tower

Other then that is was an awesome gig, we had a great laugh and have a massive thread over at Amibay since it was the Amibay stand, we've got loads of pics and vids:

Enjoy!

Great pics there Fitzsteve sorry i didnt get chance to say hello. Glad none of your equipment went missing though your amibay bunch always had plenty of people there it was some of the other stands i was thinking oh dear I bet they will be going home lighter, sad I know. As for the using the mouse mat as a coaster, one of the few things that can send into a complete rage.

Hey mate, no worries it was difficault to get to say Hi to everyone! Thanks for the Kudos on the pics.

All in all it was a great event, as you say some of the stalls were un-manned, lots of loose game carts and such that could have gone walkies, best thing abiout the Amiga's and WHDLoad is no games to go missing and as you say we usually had people at the stand, and with 500 PPC cards under the desk lol...

Maybe we'll chat next time

Steve.

I met Jeff Minter as well, although we didn't really meet as in "hello, I've heard about you" and stuff, just talked about the new game!

I also saw the legend that is Zetr0, but was starstruck and couldn't think of anything to say (apart from hello, I know you from a forum), so just sort of nodded from afar
