So who is going to BIT Live Brighton? It would be good to have a Zzap forum meetup in some pub beforehand, I believe Chris is giving a list of various meetup pubs before the event so we could pick one of them.

Reply to this message and we can sort something out.

Enjoy!

Sorry Iain! :(

Sorry to hear that Lloyd! (I knew about you not going Andrew).

I'm arriving in Gatwick around 1:30 so it'd take an hour or two to get to Brighton and get sorted with hotel etc.

Not very long, half an hour at most. Today I met Toni, of http://www.zzap.it fame, again.

Overall, a nice event, and it was great to see you again and meet many people of the community.

Yeap, I heard you guys planning a meet up on the following day. We just had time for a quick walk along the coast, down the pier, into the shopping centre and to the station. It's a nice town.

Yeap, the meeting people is almost the best part for me. It's a good excuse to do so. :)

Yeap, some photos would be good. I assume there will be lots of official photos coming out at some stage as well?

I wasn't too bad in the morning. I guess I paced myself well and slowed down later on. I sensibly had a pint of Coke too. :)

Okay, uploaded photos last night, but then Flickr went funny, so couldn't link.

I like the comment for one: "Are you Kim Lemon?" "Borough Medley off the Lemon64 forum got asked this too many times!"

:-D I was part of a discussion, discussing that as well. "BEN DAGLISH" was definitely his catch phase of the night.


Also: "Cheer up, it may never happen, Is what Leoni is thinking about this guy I believe..." was a photo of Fab before I bumped into him! :)

Funny while searching for the correct spelling of Ben's surname, I found Lee's article about the 2001 event:

http://peeknpoke.emuunlim.com/feature_b ... _index.htm

Interesting read, especially as he mentions me a few times. I remember the event but not much outside of it, i.e. where I stayed etc. so it was nice to be able to jog my memory a bit! :-D
