    OK, plans have changed!

    I can't promise to be there, I may get sent away offshore at some point this week, but if not, I'll do my best to get down

    Hmm, Travelodge is fully booked up for Saturday. Any other recommendations or floor space going? Going to have to be boring and sober otherwise!

    If you've got the wearwithall then I can probably find some floorspace.
    I'm not sure if Guy is staying Saturday or not - but I should have one of the 2 beds spare.

    Funk - really would be lovely to see you if you can make it.

    I can just bring my LAN sleeping gear, but if room's a premium I don't mind just staying sober for the night. Can work it out on the day if need be; not a problem for me.

    Seeing as I'm going northbound on Saturday anyway, might as well start a bit earlier and make a day of it.

    Re: HEXUS.social - 19th June 2010 - Vintage Computer Fair at Bletchley

    Being a wheelchair user, my carer gets in free - doesnt look like my Sally will be able to come now (trapped a nerve in her back), so if anyone wants to meet me before going in, we could share the freebie ? Anyone in Northampton going ?

    You'll have to push me about a bit though

    Give London midland a call too - they'll make sure you're looked after on the trains (direct from N'hampton to bletchley and Bletchley is generally wheelchair friendly)

    Let me know which train you're on and I'll make sure a couple of us are at bletchley station to give you a push! (I'll be parking at bletchley station anyway as Ive got a permit there)

    Ah my bad! I don't think anyone is coming from that area.

    That's cool - I'm gonna play plans by ear - see what everyone wants to do as we go along.

    Am I right in thinking there was a show later in the year at Norbreck in Blackpool?

    If so - may be interested in that... long time since I've been at a show there
