I wanted to take pictures but I forgot it completely over the beers. Not the only thing I forgot... I also forgot to pay my tab and my credit card there so I will have to go there today and sort it out lol :S (Once again, awesome shirt)
Very good night - shame the weather rained us off the terrace though! Looking forward to the geekpub crawl :)
no one snapped it? Oh dear. It's here: http://www.redbubble.com/people/maclac/t-shirts/7143474-droidtrooper
Gia, your Shirt is missing!
Great as always, and good to see so many new faces. Looking forward to the geek-crawl!

Another great turn out and some fabulous geekshirts: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjvUX9JG
Already planning the next one...
Our reservation is inside now. Did you call to have it moved?
I think in future a 6.30 reservation would be better, btw.

Looking like the weather this time isn't going to be as good as last time
A dorky shirt would be one that is generally lame; a geeky shirt is cool to those who appreciate the geekiness of it.
Quake 3... Damn that brings back memorys. Hmm i wonder if quake live will work at work duting lunch...

... curious what the difference between a dork shirt and a geek shirt is... guess I'll find out tonight....
Ha don't worry, we will still talk to you ;) I also didn't wear my geekiest t-shirt today, thought noone would recognise the "Excellent" symbol from Quake 3... but this one should do too
@ Eamonn - As will I; I have plenty of dorky t-shirts but no geeky ones. I've been meaning to get a Daring Fireball t-shirt for a while, though.
I'll be arriving a little early too, will keep an eye out for the tshirts. I'm afraid I'll be wearing something pretty bland! :)
Oh noes @Aaron - that's one heck of a way of getting round shirt choices!! (:
@Scott - Fab! I have an A4 Geekpup poster. I'll stick that somewhere convenient when I get there
@Gianna - Probably 6:30-7pm, depending as ever on TfL's whims
@Gia wasn't sure how they felt about aliases etc, so it's under both.
@Aaron bad luck dude, hope you feel better!
Gia, what time will you be there? I am finished with work at 6 oclock and will be there muchh earlier too.Aaron, oh noes :( Get well soon, shame you can't make it
Can't make it now as I'm suffering from antibiotic induced fun.
@Scott I'll probably be there before 7:30 - is the table booked under your name or is it under "geekpub"?
The Castle just called me, they don't think the weather is going to be great later on so they're gonna put us in the main bar instead - either way I guess just go where all the people with the geeky shirts are! :)
@Gianna haha, says who? :P But true, I actually think it more of a rave tshirt than geek one. And my, getting competitive, you are... I think I'll bring a t-shirt apropos to that ;)@Aaron, lol, loved those, especially the first one.

I seriously don't have any geeky t-shirts.
/me regrets not buying http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts-apparel/unisex/itdepartment/a882/
@Matt I have the same problem (:
I have too many geeky shirts. How do i pick?!
Sure, and welcome to the group! @Bruno, your Naruto-shirt won't win this one! :p
hi I'm new here, is it ok to go like this?

@Gia R - just letting you know I called The Castle again and have asked them to bump up our reservation to 25 people, which they've done!
@Bruno I thought so too (;

@Gia I just got off the phone with them - I've reserved a space for 15 of us on the terrace at 7.30, if more than 15 are coming I just need to call them to let them know :)

@Scott have you checked if the Castle can accommodate us on that date?
The 18th was getting the most votes so far, so went for that - hope that's cool with everyone!
Scott Mason changed the date and time to Thursday, August 18, 2011 at 7:30 PM

18th is best for me - George appears to be MIA...?
16th or 18th is good for me, hopefully i can finally meet you fellow geeks
16th, 17th or 18th would all be fine
16th or 18th are good for me
