This was my first show attendance for 6 years. I actually went in twice. I did actually walk out after 15-20 minutes, I wasn't that impressed. Or so I thought. After a few minutes outside, the scales fell from my eyes and I went back in. I finally had the courage to catch up with individuals I hadn't seen/spoken to in a long time, and I felt very welcome as a result. This enthusiasm for the platform should be bottled up and sold as a product, it might solve a few problems in the world :-)

It was great catching up with Dave Bradforth and Aaron, having a few lively discussions about the Tau Press days, and what happened later on after my departure. Never knew how one woman could be so universally hated by the whole community from her actions. I guess I had to be there at the time to see the brown stuff truly hit the fan. I viewed part of Louie's presentation about RISC OS Now magazine, I bought a copy, it's actually a great read. I wished her luck for the magazine. Thanks also to Chris@Drobe and Dave Holden for chatting with me, the latter especially for getting my revised manual for Birds of War onto his Flight Sim compilation CD. I never thanked you for the free copy :-D

I'll finish off by saying that the mass of beards on display were as such that I seriously thought I had taken a wrong turn and ended up in the Gandalf Appreciation Society's annual general meeting. :-p All in all, a most enjoyable time. More please!
