Wait.. Dont tell me.. You couldnt find the HUGE projector screen, with about 20 PC's on the ground around it all gaming?

Now.. How often do you get X-Box running on a screen that HUGE?

Well I obviously went ;):D
It was a great expo... Maybe if Microsoft were there giving out free copies of XP or something :p - I would've continually gone back :)

When I was there I had a good chuckle over the fact that they were playing Dead Or Alive beach Volleyball on a screen that Huge!

I went & sat down at one of the seminars titled how to be the next peter jackson, man there is some amazing DVD authoring software out there... this guy was rendering 5 DV streams, with 2 or 3 filters & 2 audio channels... real time on a P4 2.4GHz Box with 512Mb Ram... & the box itself was really Tinny Half the Height of a mini tower? did anyone else see that?

I was so in heaven today... sigh, I cant wait till im not a poor student...

I was there, and the biggest feature of the show was I got MAY issue NZ PC world for $7 a great $1.95 saving, but it costs me $10 to get to PC world stand.


But there was something very more interesting, at the end I was in the path of a shitting seagull, I wiped as much as I could off with a paper towel, but by the time I got home, all the wool had been eaten away. I have heard of cow **** eating away tar-seal but not seagulls eating away wool.

Yea i was there as well, didn't sift around that gaming area for too long though, and of course couldn't reveal my true identity.

The 700kms to Auckland was a bit of a problem...

Well, what better than Red Bull but that? ;-)

I did notice that they were having troubles with a PC at one stage.. dead floppy drive... they were totally stuffed.. they should have simply hit F1 to continue.. gotta wonder?

As for the old issues.. I picked up an October Issue with knoppix.. just in case ya know.. then went next door to the OSS/LUG and got the full 3.2 for free (CD curtesy of Liam :-))
