scottjpalmer: It is pizza and beer, not a conference. The sponsors are shelling out enough $$$ on drinks and food as it is, imagine if the numbers got bigger and bigger! Ouch!
There will definately be a next time, you will just need to be a bit quicker :-)
You are now number 1 on the waiting list though, fingers crossed!!
Thanks to the organizers and all those who sponsored what was a really enjoyable evening ; it was great to meet up with many of those who contribute online. Hopefully there will be another event in the not too distant future. Thanks again.
