Really sorry to have missed it at the last minute, guys.  My nephew has been taken to hospital today so Uncle Dynamic is in charge of someone else's house and kids for the night.

I guarantee only that the remaining kids will be alive in the morning.  The condition of the house?  Weeellllll....

Yooooooo, can I come!?


OK, When?


be sure to take photos you two ;)


Great night everyone.


To those who I didnt get to met, next time maybe :)


Had a great time, and Was nice to come out of my shell a little and meet you all



Defiantly name badges would be a good move, although guess who you are was a fun game - Couldn't help it Lorenceo, was a great laugh to see how long it would take you!

Andib: Was a good night, Great to finally put faces to usernames.
Only thing I could suggest for next time is Name Tags, Would make knowing who's who much easier.

Also thanks Microsoft for the BoomPods and Bigpipe for the bartab!

Edit: and @nate for hosting the night


Great to meet you Andrew!
Met a few people which is good! 
I WON SOMETHING, I ACTUALLY WON SOMETHING! 2 passes to the zoo!

OK, When?

Another excellent event, thanks Nate. Thanks to BigPipe and those who donated prizes.

I'd hoped to get around the group and meet those I hadn't met at previous events, but unfortunately I had to leave early. See you all at the next one!




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Thanks everyone for coming, bloody good night, hope you were well fed and watered.

Thanks to our sponsor BigPipe, and all the other sponsors who donated stuff.

Sorry about the lack of name tags, I forgot to print the tags, will make it a priority for the next one :)

I'll put up the photos the photographer took, and the time lapse in the next few days.

Thanks to Nate and the staff at the Tuihana Cafe. You were great hosts.

And thanks to Big Pipe providing the bar tab.


It was nice to meet some new people, and get out of my shell a bit.

If short term memory serves (and it often doesn't) and you're the chap with the fully functioning 2008 Sony e-reader. My not much more than a year old kindle is still broken. Had a quick look when I got home tonight. :-(

Your memory has served you well. I am that chap.

Now I must admit I have not tested the ereader for quite a while, but it was working last time I checked it, and I see no reason why it wouldn't still be operational.

For those who are interested, it is the PRS-505. I got it in the USA from Micrcenter in 2008. It cost an eye-watering 399USD (I think. Maybe it was 299? -- the 'ol memory is getting a bit hazy...)

I was there, honest I was!

I blame NikT and NZtechfreak. They had toys. Dangerous habit they have there. Always bringing their toys!

It's the earliest I've ever left. Unfortunately these things happen. I'll be at the next one!




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

All you did was sit there and stare all night! BAD ROBOT! For punishment you can wait there and help open the café in the morning.
