Ok people some advance dates for your diary..
I am looking at Friday 27th of Feb and Friday the 2nd of April for the next shindigs…
oh, and the 2nd of April will be gamedevelopers.ie first birthday (well the 30th of March really..but the 2nd is the nearest friday) There may be birthday cake to be had…(any volunteers to make it??)
and some awards for the most loyal visitors to the forums…
and hopefully some good news from those who have been to GDC..

Hmm, never noticed that. Lets blame the fact that I’ve been sick recently… that probably had something to do with it. ;)

I’ll be finishing my exams on the 2nd, so I should be able to make it to the year anniversary. See yous there.

Its down in the diary, I’ll be there I’m sure I can drag a few more Torc guys down for that weekend too.
February 23, 2004 at 10:18 am #10590AnonymousInactive
the big question of course is whether Skyclad will be there, as he now lives in Kerry…
How will the rest of us recognise each other ;)
February 23, 2004 at 11:44 am #10599AnonymousInactive
A full year and I still haven’t made it to one of these events :(
Damn you Irish Sea
February 23, 2004 at 12:20 pm #10600
Skyclad you didn’t tell us..
perhaps a shindig in Cork or Kerry is on the cards?!..
February 23, 2004 at 7:06 pm #10602AnonymousInactive
I’ll be up pretty late on friday…probably arrive in about 11ish. I just hope all the old timers wont have melted away at that stage!
I’m all for spreading aorund the shindigs now – anywhere bar muff would be easier for me to get to!
February 23, 2004 at 10:10 pm #10604AnonymousInactive
That may be true in more ways than one Skyclad.. saying nothing about your ability to score. Ok, crap joke, I’m sorry.
You know, I reckon some people would enjoy a good outing to muff and the nether-regions of Ireland in general. Perhaps it would be a good idea to look into a healthy/drunken bank holiday weekend out of the city and in the quaint Donegal country side. Perhaps some surfing, maybe just walks or trips out on a boat to a forgotten island. Just a thought.
Will be down at this Shindig and I’m almost certain Pete shall be there too. Being fashionably late is best left to people like Skyclad, I for one, plan to be having pints by at least 8.00.

Yes John….and Chris and I will be coming down as well!
I’ll be along a little bit later though at around 9:00.
I’d love to see a bit of a shindig in Galway – purely because I haven’t been down there in a while and any excuse would be sweet. Don’t know what the game scene would be like down there however.
I’d always be up for something in Donegal – there’s a load of beds/hotels/pubs and stuff to accomodate and a wealth of exra curicular activities.
This has been Mark on behalf of Bord Failte.
February 24, 2004 at 9:29 am #10607AnonymousInactive
judgin from past experience 8pm is more likely as a starting time, particularly as Skyclad won’t be around to fly the Gamedevelopers.ie flag before the rest of us arrive!
I’ve made a map showing Mahaffey’s and have mailed it to you
Give me a ring if you have any problems
February 24, 2004 at 5:21 pm #10618AnonymousInactive
Thank you very much for the map. I will be able to use it along with my… ahem, terrific sense of direction to get to Mahaffey’s.
8pm is great. Gives me enough time to get into Dublin, get a bite to eat and then inevitably get lost a few times along the way…
I’m really delighted to be able to come to my first shindig and am especially looking forward to meeting Mark and some of the guys from Torc before I head over to Donegal next month.
It should be a great night for all. :)
February 27, 2004 at 12:28 pm #10675
I was chatting to Jim last night from Mahaffy’s and he said the pub might be a bit busy around 7.30 ish but will thin out later…
mm, no it won’t I thought cause we will all be arriving..
I hope to arrive around 7.30 and will be the sober person in the snug over to the left of the pub looking for friends..
come and join me!

Tell me about it, Belfast is absolutely snowed under. The sun has just came out there now so that should help but I’m expecting a delay.
I should be there around 8pm or maybe a bit sooner. It’s not the biggest pub in the world so it shouldn’t be to hard to find Aphra and the other people already there but be sure to look out for me. :)
March 1, 2004 at 11:39 am #10698
Thanks to all who attended the shindig on Friday night. There was a great turnout, although I didn’t do as good a job as skyclad on keeping tables..we’ll sort that one out for the next time..
a few things worth mentioning to those who couldn’t turn up or had to leave early..
1. a big welcome to the TKO crew who turned up and informed us they are still looking for 2 good java programmers…contact Will Golby if that is you
2. yet again Torc wins on the consistency with which they turn up to shindigs and the numbers who turn up…
3. although Ronny came down from Belfast and Dave made it up from Kerry..
4. best of luck to Ronny who is off to do a week’s work experience with Torc soon
5. good to have a couple more academics from NUI Maynooth and Trinity
6. found out some of the demonWare crew were formerly in Trinity in the Distributed Systems Group so me thinks Trinity is winning on the game company spin-off index..
7. much discussion of a surfing weekend in Donegal coming up either on the May bank holiday or the June bank holiday..not that many of us can surf and we are talking about a very cold sea but hey I hear the poitin is good!
by the way the next shindig might involve a change of location in Dublin so keep an eye here for further information..
PS Tony did any of those pics from the night turn out?
March 9, 2004 at 11:54 am #10818
by the way, did anyone hear something about a bomb scare in a pub on Pearse street last night? I was driving home at the time and it looked like it might have been in Mahaffy’s.!!?
March 11, 2004 at 2:45 pm #10862
Some of you already know that I am hoping to give out a small number of awards on the 2nd of April as a token of our appreciation for all the inputs and assistance I’ve had over the past year. Ian has suggested we call them the ‘GDs’!
We are hoping to have five categories; tentative names follow, feel free to make your own suggestions as to what each award should be called.
1. Stamina award
The person who signed up to the forums near the very beginning and is still posting…
2. Sprint award
The person who has recently registered but is furiously posting and rapidly moving up the posting ladder
3. Humour award
The funniest post on the boards…we’ll be taking nominations on this…
4. Salmon of knowledge..
The most informative/useful post ..we’ll be taking nominations on this one too…
5. ‘GD’ of the year….
The most significant, useful, funny presence on the boards and at the shindigs over the past year – apart from my good self of course! Make your nomations through this thread please …
You can post your nominations here and the closing date will be Friday the 26th of March. Then a high quality jury consisting of myself, Padraig Murphy aka Hamish here in DCU, and a neutral other who I still have to recruit..will make the final decisions…
still time of course to make witty, intelligent posts and lobby the jury!!
March 15, 2004 at 4:34 pm #10906
I’ve been talking to both Mahaffys and Toners about being the venue for the birthday shindig.
Why change the venue you ask? Well the first shindig was in Toners and as it turns out they are willing to reserve tables downstairs for us from 7pm. Mahaffys can only keep tables for us if we arrive around 6pm which I think might be a bit much to expect for people travelling from outside Dublin..
so if people don’t object I was going to book tables downstairs in Toners on Baggott Street, again centre of Dublin, for the 2nd of April shindig…
maps and directions will follow in a mail and on the calendar..
now all we need are nominations via the website or by e-mail to me…
and suggestions/volunteers for sponsorship for awards..
March 16, 2004 at 1:35 pm #10929AnonymousInactive
1. Stamina award
The person who signed up to the forums near the very beginning and is still posting…[/quote:4461c8c9c6]
Pete or Omen I guess – pete on the basis that he will actually have been signed up for over a year by the time the shindig happens…
2. Sprint award
The person who has recently registered but is furiously posting and rapidly moving up the posting ladder
Tony, with an astonishing 102 posts in the Feb/Mar period (to date) has to be a shoe in for this one. That compares rather embarassingly to Aphra, who had 57 in the same time frame.
3. Humour award
The funniest post on the boards…we’ll be taking nominations on this… [/quote:4461c8c9c6]
Aphra, possibly unknowingly, should probably win this one with her commentary on the Upstart games / Nokia challenge –
“I heard they should be making an announcement by the end of this week or early next…
4. Salmon of knowledge..
The most informative/useful post ..we’ll be taking nominations on this one too…[/quote:4461c8c9c6]
Darwen / Ronny / Monument with their resources thread.
5. ‘GD’ of the year….
The most significant, useful, funny presence on the boards and at the shindigs over the past year – apart from my good self of course! [/quote:4461c8c9c6]
Going to ignore Aphra and nominate her anyway. Setting up the site was just a little more significant and useful then anything anyone else has done.
March 16, 2004 at 1:39 pm #10931
no one ever listens to me!
Thanks for your nominations Dave…
Tony is obviously on a major catch up drive…it won’t work Tony!!

Oh yeah and here’s a useful link, where some games “related” content can be found:
Idora eh… I mean Ian ;)
March 16, 2004 at 4:22 pm #10942AnonymousInactive
I think that Skyclad deserves this one. Sure he’s just been pushed into forth place but he’s been real busy as of late so I think that falling behind is excusable.
Yeah, I agree in saying Idora has this one in the bag. Been really dedicated to the forums lately.
GD of the year
And for GD of the year I have to follow Skyclad’s lead in denying Aphra’s orders by nominating her. She really has been spectacular in setting up the site and helping to bring together Irish game dev from all corners of the island.
Salmon of Knowledge – Darwen / Ronny / Monument with their resources thread. [/quote:989a232247]
Wow, I have to say that was truly unexpected Dave. Nearly knocked me off my seat when I saw my name. I’m really glad I started that thread now, in fact I just fixed a broken link on the page there now. A GD nomination would just about be the crowning moment of my short career. :)
March 16, 2004 at 4:54 pm #10947AnonymousInactive
I guess its Pete…he beat me by a week….so close
Idora is definitelly well up there.
As a second nominee, I’d put kyotokid forward….34 posts in just over a month, on average thats just over Tony’s average.
Salmon of knowledge Award
I’d agree with Dave…the effort that went into compiling the data in that thread deserve it.
Aphra, just accept it, its all yours :)
March 18, 2004 at 10:25 am #10966
Thanks for the nominations so far but in relation to the GD of the year award really the GD award cannot go to me..
it should go to someone who has made a special effort to make the shindigs and is a regular on the forum and helping to grow the industry and the community. As the organiser of the awards I have to be exempt..so please nominate someone else…
I won’t have a hockey game the next day so you can buy me a pint instead!!

March 19, 2004 at 4:19 pm #10975
Yea Ronny, I am insistent people can’t vote for me…the GD of the year has to go to someone else….there are certainly a few people who have made valient efforts to attend shindigs and written very useful posts and articles for the website. I have a few in mind….
March 19, 2004 at 5:55 pm #10976
by the way Jab has agreed to be the neutral person on the nominations…Ian and Co are working with me on getting a cool trophy developed..and since ye are all busy preparing for GDC we will extend the deadline for nominations till next Wed..the 31st…come on GD of the year…one nomination for Tony…we can’t let him just walk away with it!
March 19, 2004 at 7:04 pm #10977AnonymousInactive
GD of the Year…ummm
Idora – for his work with IGDA
Skyclad – for his constat presence
Omen – for Dare input
Johnnyslim – for web development
GrifMike – for his advise as probably the most successful irish game developer as the moment?
I know i put myself in there, but I thought I’d throw up a number of nominations because there weren’t many coming forward. Just my thoughts, tear them to pieces as you will :)
March 19, 2004 at 7:13 pm #10978
that’s more like it….a real competition..
I’ll ignore the fact that you snuck yourself in!

March 22, 2004 at 10:07 am #10985
I might also mention that Dylan Collins was very influential in getting EI to sponsor an Irish ‘room’ at GDC this year where Irish game companies can hold their meetings..given Dylan’s ability to run around and do ten things at the same time as well as popping into the shindigs I think for GD of the year he deserves a nomination…and he is on the IGDA Ireland committee…
March 23, 2004 at 9:47 am #11015
I would just like to point out that Omen has overtaken Idora again in terms of number of posts..and as Idora is across the water at GDC it looks like he won’t be fighting back…
I’m luvin’ it…

ok people the final week to our birthday shindig…
we have closed nominations although we could be influenced by particularly persuasive lobbying on behalf of particular posts…the nominations will be posted later today..

if anyone is a dab hand at photography let me know cause I would like to make sure we have a couple of cameras around on the night..

Had this been next year then I’d be your man as I have a keen interest in photography and intend on taking a course in it. However, if you would like my amateur shots then feel free. I should be able to borrow a camera for Friday, provided it is fixed in time… long story. ;)
I’m looking forward to seeing the complete nominations and can’t wait to come down on Friday.

I’ll be popping along for an hour between 8.30 and 9.30 for the awards before going on the tear at my end of exams party, so I’ll have my camera with me, I can mail them across to you over the weekend after.

I’d love to, but the lads in the office still laugh at my last foray into art. Created some place-holder models in Max and I was ridiculed for it….my art days are over until I get some time so pratice.
Maybe some of our budding artists could help?
Jsut a thought, but maybe a some kind of regular update could be implemented. Would be a cool way to get someone to continually show off some artistic talent??

On another note –

we’ve been discussing the nominations and there are a number of spoiled votes…I thought I should share them with you…
1. Humour –
a couple of anonymous nominations for the nGage challenge and its organisation…
a nomination for my posts about the nGage winner being announced ‘shortly’!
2. Stamina award –
a strange nomination for Skyclad which suggests that he should marry Omen (this wasn’t posted…sent to me directly…I take no responsibility…)
the counting continues…

and the nominees are….
1. Ian Hannigan
5 the Ngage competition (only joking!)
Salmon of Knowledge:
GD of the Year
3. Johnny Slim
5. Dylan Collins
both the stamina and sprint awards are more mathematical and we are finalising how we define them…maybe I should have chosen different terms…
anyway it would be great if these people could show up for the awards as we are getting rather nice trophies made ..
we will decide the winners probably by tomorrow and announce the winners on the night but as I’ve said before…feel free to lobby!! & start writing your acceptance speeches…

I’m only home for the weekend in April. My current contract ends mid May, although I hope sort the future out soon (maybe even on Friday!).

Haven’t made it to any unfortunatelly, that damned sea keeps getting in the way! Reckon the only ones of ye across the water that I’ve met Aphra and Mike Griffen ….although I realised some of ye recognise me from the dare event. Even Dave knows who I am from that…

Can’t make it tonight Guys and Gal(s).
Shame, because I really was looking forward to Tony’s speech (I’m sure he will make one even if he doesn’t win)! :)
This whole trekkie thing got me thinking, strange feeling for a friday evening. My spock costume will have to wait until next time but I was wondering could you tell something about a person by the trekkie character they would pick aside from age (for all those ridiculously young people out there spock was in the original star trek! Ok maybe everyone does know that regardless of their age).
So Data and Dr. Crusher, would you care to comment? I think we better wait for Aphra to choose her own costume as 7of9 was assigned by Woody.
April 2, 2004 at 5:31 pm #11239AnonymousInactive
Not even a Star Treck fan though one of the guys i lived with it used to watch everyday so i know a bit!
I dont think there is any of them i could really see myself as…. though with the skin colour of Datea and facial features of Warf and the ears of a Romulain (i think thats how there spelt) i would need to have a new race invented! Compunerd maybe?
Everybody likes to have the game developers fit a sterotype so was just playing up to it! So wont be wearing by Star treck costume or carrying my light-sabre or putting on my Elven Cloak as when i peak out through the curtains of my dark room with the sun hurting my eyes i can see its a nice day. :rolleyes:

Aphra, possibly unknowingly, should probably win this one with her commentary on the Upstart games / Nokia challenge – [/quote:b400fecd10]
LOL – don’t know how I missed this before – a classic, Dave!
a strange nomination for Skyclad which suggests that he should marry Omen[/quote:b400fecd10]
he is cute, Omen… and, not a lot of people know this, but he’s also a great dancer…
Shame, because I really was looking forward to Tony’s speech (I’m sure he will make one even if he doesn’t win)![/quote:b400fecd10]
ahem! no comment…

Please excuse the language.
Tony, are you going for the ‘I had the last post in every thread on the boards’ award for next year! That keyboard is smokin!
April 5, 2004 at 10:58 pm #11295AnonymousInactive
Hmmm… I wonder if someone is playing catch-up with Omen… ;)

I’ll not let him do it, even with under-hand tactics like replying to himself in threads.
I’ll be strong, and if needed, I’ll create personal threads where I can have debates with myself!

ahem… weren’t you threatening at one point recently to come in on your day off to keep up with posting?!!
this is not a race!

Hehe…I actually did call into the library that morning on my way home to check out what I missed and to ask how it went on friday.
Stop looking at me….so I have no life…leave me be!

Rarely little time to oneself and now we know why… cause they are so insistent on out posting people on an Irish game dev forum!
Can’t wait to see the pics aphra…

From left to back row back:
Eoin from Demonware (some call him Dylan though), Tony Kelly, John from Torc, Sean from Demonware and hiding at the back Pete from Torc.
The middle row, for want of a better name has Carley (laughing), Ronny (smiling) and Erin (hanging tongue).
Near the front are Ian “funny guy” Hannigan, me, and Aphra smiling politely despite knowing we were all behind her :)
