@ Juv (& Mrs Juv) we certainly did!
Absolutely bushed, just reviewing the pics and bits from today!
Hung around playing games until the auction at 2, Gary won a great prize (Keith was gutted) but we did win some weird wireless gizmos for 3 quid each and I got the special mp3 adapter for one as well, Winner. :mrgreen:

I spoiled myself with a totally jawsome Heathrow ATC simulator for the speccy and Manic Miner & JSW original tapes too!

Going to scan the Cannon Fodder bits and post the pics here too, I am so chuffed with that Its not true. I've been babbling to the missus about all that happened since I got in non-stop
(@ Z she isn't too ****ed at me, the kids were driving her nuts when I called!) :lol:

Back in a mo to post up some pics, great to meet everyone at last, it was Fantastic.
Good to see no one's got the line up quite right too :wink:

Sooo, me, r0jaws, zetr0, and GazUK and Mrs JuvUK don't do "decent" conversation, huh.... that's one off the retro xmas card list :mrgreen:


@r0jaws

did the satnav get you through Leicester OK, there are a few roman roads there so it should have known them :)
get working on that new avatar mate look forward to seeing it. I'll be booking a curry night in the not too distant future.

r0jaws
8th March 2009, 22:18
I chickened out I'm afraid dude, the traffic was pretty heavy and the missus had just phoned so I decided to put me foot down and stay on the motorways and leap off onto the A14, took about 2 1/2 hours to get to keiths and then a quick 20 min blast back to mine. :D

Finally a couple of my pics, (sorry for the rough quality, but my camera phone is a bit rubbish)
