      Hi all

      well before the students and academics take off on hols and those in the industry probably take some time off too before they have to think about Christmas deadlines we should probably try to get another informal shindig somewhere..

      I know Jamie had suggested something in the Xbox centre..

      other ideas welcome…

      It’s also my friend’s birthday on the 13th! I’ll probably be camping that weekend so it’s not good for me either. Need to stay in touch with nature now and again. ;)

      29th and 6th are both fine.

      The 6th it is then.

      Perhaps, if we’re able to, we could start off at the Xbox Gaming Centre and then move on to the pub afterwards. The pub near Trinity that we were at last time was a good enough place. That is if it’s close to the Xbox Centre.

      You know you want to, Claire. A pint couldn’t hurt. Take the chance to wind down after a long day!

      :twisted:

      To the risk of (mostly) shocking most of ye, I am actually free on 6th July.

      I comes with added freedom, to boot (wife & daughter, lucky them, are getting a couple of weeks’ headstart on me at the beach :lol: ).

      Would be perfect.

      Is there any other date that suits people? I really want to go because I haven’t been to one in months, but the 6th doesn’t suit me because I have another engagment :cry:

      great, thanks Jamie…so do we know who might go to the XBox live centre first for two hours and who will be just coming to the pub. Be good to have a rough idea before Jamie starts reserving places.

      I will be there..

      Thanks aphra and yes, mobile by pm, please.

      Given how good a summer we’re having this year, the company might reschedule, or it might be a very short affair anyhow.

      looks like a very small group – four/five.

      anyway worth going for a pint nevertheless and into the Xbox centre to catch up with Jamie.

      It’s a good thing I wasn’t able to go. Apparently the motorway was backed up for hours because of Oxegen.

      Any news from the shindig?

      nice to meet a couple of new faces last Friday night, esp David and his girlfriend, and although it was a small one I think we managed to spread sufficient gossip to make it meaningful!

      I now have to find out how much of it can be made public…Ian?

      Anyway… I can end the "intrigue" and reveal the naked truth ;)

      Good luck in Rebellion Ian!!!

      It’s a shame to see experienced developers leave, but given the current state of game dev in Ireland, it’s unfortunately understandable also.
