Blimey – It’s only a couple of weeks away.
I hope you’ve booked your travel and accom, and I hope you had less pain than me!
I found a flight for 49 pence (about 1 Euro centime?) by the time I got to the checkout it ended up over 150 quid! W-T-F??
Then the crappy train site kept mucking up my cookies and putting random stuff in my cart just before checkout – I lost count of the number of times I went through their slow painful choosing process. PITA.
I’ll be down in time for drinks on Tue night, I think a few are staying in the Aldgate travellodge, so I dunno if it will be round there or nearer Victoria. No blog posts because the UK hotel market still lags the rest of the developed and developing world in charging stoopid money for wifi. 10 quid per hour- as if! That and the fact I’ll be in the conf or in the pub for the whole of my visit.
Wednesday I’m up for a curry if anyone fancies, especially if anyone knows a good one in the area.
I’m doing beginner/intermediate sessions on VBA and on getting the best from the grid. Full program is here: http://excelusergroup.org/blogs/nickhodge/archive/2008/12/05/uk-excel-user-group-conference.aspx
Hope to see you there
(If you didn’t get in this time, then there may be another in the autumn I think)
