    Just to give some advance warning…

    ..we are thinking of having a second birthday bash for gd.ie in early April in Dublin. Ideas are welcome as to what we should do to mark the occasion…

    awards again???

    awards… and how about really trying to get the posters from farther afield to come back for it? Be nice to put faces to some of the names, and it would be a really good way of celebrating the community we’ve all built up and participate in. With enough notice, they might be able to pull it off – just a thought

    will the offer of beer, wine, food and awards be enough to get you all to attend???

    My birthday is in April too, although I am older than Gd.ie……slightly.

    I will try me best to make the bash, I know I have said that before for the last two shindigs…..but this time I will keep a date free in my non-existant diary!
    I’m looking forward to meeting the guys I haven’t met before…..

    If it’s after April 4th, I’ll be able to come along, I’m handing in my thesis that day and will be MIA in the pub for the rest of that week.

    Let this not be the beginning of a “Sir Cliff” phase…….PLEASE GOD!!!

    I hear that people born in April are superior in every way to people born in other months of the year.

    The interweb is fantastic for such vital factual information.

    The non-aprilites wouldn’t understand, its too technical for their feebles minds…..

    But isn’t April the actual bday month?

    Also, as we have already established, April is by far superior….to everything.

    Is that the “commercial, sell out of an off license in Ballsbridge” Saki, or the proper, “arrives in a keg to an off license in Kyoto who then bottles it himself” Saki?

    There is a BIG differance….. ;)

    Good stuff. Hopefully I’ll be able to make it. Can’t see any reason not to if I keep my studying up.

    How the hell are you all able to post so much lately?? You’re all professional businessmen and students yet you still find a way to spend all day on the forums. I must admit I’m a tad jealous. ;)
