Was good to see you up here so far away from the Sunny South (:-)).

I'd better add some Day 2 honourable mentions for:

Mr Tux Games' show-stopper demo of incredible video compression for an 
old Star Trek episode. Over 30 mins of video and audio in just a few 
MBytes. (OK, so not quite full colour, but a lot better than BW!)

Marcel's audacious bribery-by-coffee (a nice change from free beers 
(:-)) and his wooden-mallet data squashing exploits by dial-up link (;-O)).

We also finished off the day with a demo by Dave at Green's Mill of 
various computer data comms modulation methods as now used by Radio Hams 
over their HF bands.

All good fun,
