No problem at all Mike :) There's still one place left but whoever has it will be sleeping with a server (not actually, but it's in the same room) and it's a tad noisy.... You've got the quiet room Mike...


If it really bothers the other person, the server doesn't bother me - I work nights, I can sleep through anything... Well, I'm presuming it's not a rack full of DL380s running at full load..

They are seriously noisy.. Ear defenders are mandatory at our salt-mine when in their vicinity... Anyway, could never afford the electricity bill to run a rackful...

Mine's just an old PowerMac G4 with noisy fan bearings... It just seems bloody loud in the dead of night

Yes, they are noisy. I had to balance the power on a rack of them yesterday, stood behind it for about an hour. It was, at least, nice and warm. I really should wear ear plugs more often when I go in the DC. I occasionally do, but I'm rarely in there for that long. If I am, then I do. I often leave them in when I come out too, it stops people talking to me..

Heh. Not a hope. You Brits can't drink properly. You all pass out way too early, and I end up simply half-cut and bored with no one left to talk to!

Seriously - it happens to me! I spent my early drinking years in Greece, where we would start earlier and finish a lot, lot later, so we'd drink more, but a little slower, and be completely wasted by oh, about 6am when it was time to go home for a shower before we went back to work again....

Horlicks? I prefer Milo, it's more of a chocolately flavour, but still has the malty kick. Adriana introduced me to it, they like it in South America.

I sometimes have a valium chaser :-)

Ill certainly be there. Looking forward to it, although after DSM I swore not to eat at the Shoulder of Mutton again!
I think Dean summed last years CXM up nicely for me!

Im very much looking forward to this and a look around Bletchley park. I'll be there both days. By the sounds of things I might well avoid the Shoulder of Mutton too, im pretty gad I did this time! The Toby Carvery I had was perfect :lol:

Not sure what im bringing yet, my dad is talking about bringing the XM estate, I'll be in either my Xm or Activa.

Lets hope for some good weather and it'll be a perfect weekend :-D

From what I have heard, the problem ultimately stemmed from when the D Section told the Pub that they were going to have 90 (!!!) people for food when infact there was only 34 which most certainly wouldn't have helped matters... I doubt they had 90 cars there all weekend!

Anyway...regarding good weather, I've booked it earlier than last year so hopefully the weather gods can provide... :lol: :roll: :wink:

Not sure what we'll have there - I fancy that I'll take the C4, dad'll have a CX of some shape there too....

Question is Robert - Pub Style or Chip Shop Style. Or both?!! :mrgreen:
