Smile Pictures from Melbourne Meet-up

Well..... the Melbourne meet up has just recently finished, 30 min later than expected and hopefully everyone had a good time. Much relaxed discussion about devices, software, authors and general state of life the universe and everything. (photo's below)

Thanks to everyone who came along, near and far. I'll be putting up dates for one more meet-up this year and one per quarter next year. We'll be looking for a venue with couches...... that seems to work quite well, everyone had a chance to chat to everyone else..... here's to next time.

thanks for the photos nigel ! it looks like you had a great time. are you wearing name stickers ? in the french forum we were just talking about that, we'll probably do it for our next meetup as well, because it's not easy to remember everyone's name (sometimes it's not easy to find it out to begin with !).

i'm very impressed you've got your schedule already worked out for all of 2010 ! looks like australia is giving paris a bit of competition in the meetup department !

Hey, is that a pile of doughnuts I see on the table? And bacon just to the left? No fair!

Hi Zelda,.....yup, we were wearing nametags...interesting we were using real names rather than our usernames...got a bit confusing at one stage...next time will use both.

Where do you folks meet up...in a bookshop or cafe?

Hi Vivaldirules....chocolates, biscuits, cheese and crackers....if it went on any longer we were going to break out the wine...

if we have them (we probably will) next time i'll definitely recommend everyone puts both their real names and their pseudos ! if i have to choose, i'd rather know the pseudo. when a new person arrives at a meetup and introduces themselves (with their real name...) i always say "yes yes but who are you on the forum ?" (that's the one i know, after all !)

we started out in a café, now we meet in a café / restaurant because we've got people coming from rather far away (sometimes as far as wales or switzerland ! ) and it's more convenient if they can have dinner there. so we start at 6pm with drinks and around 8 whoever wants to stay for dinner starts heading towards the table.
