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…
February 22, 2005 at 8:36 am #17876
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
February 22, 2005 at 9:27 am #17882
will the offer of beer, wine, food and awards be enough to get you all to attend???
February 22, 2005 at 9:45 am #17883
holds out for the offer of flights and accomodation ;)
February 22, 2005 at 10:19 am #17886
you have to come home some time, Omen… We’ll be waiting!!
February 22, 2005 at 10:23 am #17887
:D we could drum up an gd.ie allstars fan club for when they arrive at the airport LOL
February 22, 2005 at 10:32 am #17889
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…..
February 22, 2005 at 11:00 am #17892
accomodation could be sorted..if you are not too fussy..
flights…that might be asking too much!!
it will be a friday night tho!!
February 22, 2005 at 11:23 am #17894
Might make a trip home around then anyway so might make it. Probably going to depend on when PSPs get launched though…
February 22, 2005 at 12:15 pm #17897
Are you going to let Sony dictate to you how to live your life? Eh? Eh? Eh?
February 22, 2005 at 12:35 pm #17899
when you want to release a game, you don’t really have much choice…
February 22, 2005 at 1:09 pm #17902
There is always a choice*
* – may or may not be true

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.
February 23, 2005 at 10:00 am #17948
April is lookin’ good! My bday is in that glorious month too.
February 23, 2005 at 12:01 pm #17963
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.
February 23, 2005 at 12:45 pm #17970
:D i do believe things just took a turn for the worse LOL
February 23, 2005 at 2:16 pm #17976

February 23, 2005 at 4:15 pm #17985
Your right, and I would probably choose food over phones anyway…. :p

Thats a FACT mate, I read it on the interweb.
February 24, 2005 at 10:24 am #18003
The interweb is fantastic for such vital factual information.
The non-aprilites wouldn’t understand, its too technical for their feebles minds…..
February 24, 2005 at 1:35 pm #18012
I feel strangely compelled to agree with this rather odd thread.
February 24, 2005 at 2:10 pm #18013
you saddos… everyone knows Aquarians rock
February 24, 2005 at 2:13 pm #18014
Don’t be ridiculous, “Aquarians”, were all wiped out when Atlantis was destroyed.
February 25, 2005 at 8:09 am #18040
Were would you all be without Librans, eh?!? No culture, no taste, no peace… no balance to your maladjusted lives, is were :D
February 25, 2005 at 8:48 am #18041
Librarians are boring…..

Don’t make me ask Sir Cliff….
March 1, 2005 at 10:01 am #18113
You will need to release him from his tank of formaldehyde first……..
March 1, 2005 at 10:08 am #18115
Is there anything happening in March?
Easier for me to get time off in Marhc I reckon
March 1, 2005 at 10:38 am #18118
But isn’t April the actual bday month?
Also, as we have already established, April is by far superior….to everything.
March 1, 2005 at 11:02 am #18121
Wasn’t necessarily talking about the b’day bash. Just might be in the country in March…
March 1, 2005 at 12:13 pm #18127
Ah right…….misunderstood. Happens quite a lot to me.. :p
March 1, 2005 at 12:13 pm #18128
afraid not, Omen… GDC is on
can you not come back in April instead?

March 1, 2005 at 1:42 pm #18139
well wine/drinks/nibbles and then to a pub for beers after….
can’t ask for too much more than that..!
March 1, 2005 at 1:55 pm #18140
Wine you say………then beer, then shots……..
Could be a very painful experience! :p

March 2, 2005 at 9:43 am #18150
None of that fancy shot cocktail business, I’m talking pints….of Guinness. A mans drink!

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….. ;)
March 2, 2005 at 9:52 am #18154
not after 5 of’em, there isn’t :D
March 2, 2005 at 4:32 pm #18169
not all of us want hair on our chests ta very much..
March 2, 2005 at 4:36 pm #18170
Maybe we could all drink a load of ’em and get a whole “Planet of the Apes” vibe goin on?
Just a thought…..
March 2, 2005 at 6:39 pm #18172
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. ;)
March 3, 2005 at 8:42 am #18175
I am neither a businessman nor a dirty student excuse me……. :p
March 16, 2005 at 11:48 am #18770

8th is out for me … but 15th is grand :D
March 16, 2005 at 12:04 pm #18776
‘Tis indeed the 8th…..
