    Just thinking that as some people will be in Dublin for Eurographics in Trinity and there is an IGDA games event on Wednesday the 31st should we think of getting people together that evening for a shindig? Not everyone might be able to make the conference and while some are away at GDCE it is still another opportunity to get people together.

    Eurographics has presentations and awards ceremony until 8pm that evening followed by a pub quiz. I for one would skip the pub quiz!

    hopefully we can round up a few people for a post conference drink..keep an eye here to see where, probably in the vicinity of Trinity College since that is where the conference is..

    I know its advance, but someone mentioned september somewhere else. Feel like taking a couple of days of next month but will need to do it soon as there’s a deadline next month and there might be a hissy-fit if I leave it late. Anyone thought of September shindig dates. Mid-september would suit me best probably…

    no dates suggested yet but since you have got the ball rolling mid september means 16/17th I guess. Suits me as I will be back in Dublin by that stage!

    A confirmed plan is needed.

    As suggested, lets go to Mahaffeys on the 31st August and having a few drinks. I will definately go. Anyone else who wishes to go, either say so here, or just pop along on the evening.

    Shindigs and school night drinking must be behind this statistic…

    Chris made a great job of presenting for Torc alright… and thanks to all the speakers, etc.

    Was great to meet Sean and Bernard down from oop norff… see Hugh from Blanchardstown IT and Peter from Eirplay, as well as the guys from Futruemark in Finland

    A good afternoon and evening all round, I think… will post some piccies of the events later in the week (forgot to get any on the Shindig though… Doh!)

    yes nice to see some old and new faces…

    I have a few pics from earlier too but also none from the shindig. No busy talkin and drinkin

    see some of you after Steve C’s talk later today..4pm I believe. Hope I can understand some of it! Guy from Pixar yesterday was very entertaining and informative on the animation production process and ‘cheating’ techniques.
