Is the registration link correct? On mobile it's just taking me to the cafes main page.

UPDATE: Selected desktop UA  in mobile Chrome and link worked.

Done via Chrome on Android. Dolphin failed after entering payment details.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I registered early this morning via Dolphin on iPad and it worked fine. Maybe something wrong with Android Dolphin?




Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

It was to do with redirects to mobile pages outside of Nate's site. Dolphin was not set as desktop, just amended Nate's link above to force desktop (?fullversion=1)




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I've had a fair few people ask to move this to Thursday as they'll be able to attend because of TechEd.

For those of you who have registered so far, is this ok?

No problem here. Do you expect to get to the 48 max?

Hmmm - won't get to hang out with Miss22 at her place the next day as she'll be at work instead. 

Probably can make it work though




<- don't ask me where I am - I haven't a clue: its a tech thing ;)
Housewife computerer: not particularly great at either. 
And don't take me too seriously.

Jen you can crash at mine if you like. I have a sofa bed. Not a huge pad, usually room enough to swing a cat in but if you need to let me know :-)

No. Best we ever did was 35 I think.  48 is my limit for my liquor licence.

So are non-drinkers zero rated for your count? :)





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
