Once again we will be running a live stream of the event and I am currently looking at the options for sorting out the issues with the 2 rooms that we had last time.

I look forward to this :)

Btw, the live stream was recorded wasn't it? Did it ever make it onto YouTube?

The live stream was recorded but the footage is currently on a PC back home- not got round to uploading it so I really should soon. I think there was around 7hrs of footage from the event to work through :)

Alex, are you a student at Reading? If so what are you studying?

Excellent! I'm pretty tied up for all weekends in March except this one! Hope it's as good as your last one, and that there's no snow this time!
