    I trust you're in the process of re-ordering business cards then? : )

    St Pauls is very close. Moorgate and Barbican are fairly close too.

    I'll be sending instructions from St Pauls on Tursday or Wednesday morning along with my mbile numebr incase anyone gets lost!

    Oh why oh why do you make life so difficult for us North eastern folk Duane.

    I personally think a large UKBF event should be held somewhere right inbetween the UK, say for example in Newcastle ;). At least everyone from the North And South of the UK would have equal opportunities to get there.

    Hi Sarah - glad you're coming! I'll save a newspaper for you to make the bench more tolerable.

    Sorry Scott, not my fault! This isn't an official UKBF get-together - just bi-monthly event I happen to run in London and this time around a load of UKBFers are coming.

    Get on to the case of Dan "Big Boss Man" Martin to arrange something in Geordieland.

    As the new owners of UKBF we are in the process of finalising the new services we'll be adding both on and offline. More events and networking opportunities all around the UK are definately some of the suggestions we're considering.

    If you haven't booked for this yet and you want to come, please book ASAP. I need to get numbers over to catering.

    So if you book after the next couple of hours you can still come but you're not allowed to eat or drink : )

    So, who else is coming then? With just Andy, Duane, myself and Boss Man himself going, who would truly miss out?

    Jorge is coming too. As is Simon form AtlasCS, and Sarah and her Parner from Arrow.

    Plus another 25 or so people from off the forums.

    Last chance for free grub. I'm sending the numbers to catering when I leave the office in an hour or so so they have it for first thing in the morning (when I'm still sound asleep)

    Can we resist the Panda jokes? : )

    Sarah - we're all going to have name badges on - so Jorge is the only one you'll be able to spot without having to look at his chest!

    Brilliant - a fun night ogling chests, cant believe this is meant to be work, lol
    Name badges work for me as the 'corporate' uniform only comes in xxl, for the drivers, and that means as I am only 5' 2" everyone will be looking at my knees to see who I am!

    Looking forward to meeting you all

    Sarah

    Desparately trying to think of a Panda joke but failing miserably

    A panda walks into a restaurant, sits down, and orders a sandwich. He eats the sandwich, pulls out a gun, and shoots the waiter dead. As the panda stands up to go, the manager shouts, "Hey! Where are you going? You just shot my waiter, and you didn't even pay for your sandwich!"
    "Hey, man, I'm a PANDA!" the panda shouts back. "Look it up!"

    The manager opens his dictionary and reads:

    Panda: A tree-dwelling marsupial of Asian origin, characterized by distinct black and white coloring. Eats shoots and leaves.

    Can we please try not to have too much fun though. Normally it is fun, and that's great. But there is a strong possibility my wife might come with me to this one (we're interviewing around the corner from the venue - she has a background in recruitent so she is coming along to that)

    I keep telling her that its boring work stuff not fun so therefore doesn't count as me being out and having fun while she is at home with the little 'un : )
