[po, Sep 10 2010]

looks like it might be busy http://www.thisislo...tdoor-free-party.do
beautiful day though - anyone awake yet? [po, Sep 12 2010]

       Count me in.   

       {Although not next Tues night, nor following Friday->Monday}
Jinbish, Sep 10 2010
  

       Can't do Friday [today] but should be more flexible in the next couple of weeks. Will be watching this with anticipation. My prefs would be Central London - maybe Southbank?
zen_tom, Sep 10 2010
  

       central or south bank would be good
hippo, Sep 10 2010
  

       south bank always a favourite - sunday preferred.
po, Sep 10 2010
  

       South bank is good for me. Sunday is also good.
Jinbish, Sep 10 2010
  

       Sunday would be nice - (just checking - this Sunday?)
zen_tom, Sep 10 2010
  

       Yep - could do.
Jinbish, Sep 10 2010
  

       Sounds exciting - I'm looking forward to asking [hippo] about his recent adventures in Cat5 cabling, [JinBish] about his recent foray South of the Border, [Dub] about spaghetti hoops, and [po] about recent and general pigeon activities.
zen_tom, Sep 10 2010
  

       pretty soon now someone will suggest a date and a location for this…
hippo, Sep 10 2010
  

       Sunday 12th. Oxo Tower (Bar). 14.00h.   

       How's that for starters?
Jinbish, Sep 10 2010
  

       :) [po], Does [LOST] know how to find the place?
I'm not so sure I do
Dub, Sep 10 2010
  

       Easy - head for Blackfriars Bridge, and then aim for the big tower that has OXO written on it - can't go wrong (ha - I'll probably end-up phoning you on the day to ask for directions!)
zen_tom, Sep 10 2010
  

       It was the first name out the hat (well, 3rd, but had better reviewers). I don't know how to get there, bug I saw the big OXO tower on my way home today...
Jinbish, Sep 10 2010
  

       not sure I'd trust LOST's directional abilities - but perhaps he/she prefers wandsworth common to finding its way back to the loft...
po, Sep 10 2010
  

       Not tonight! Nooooo! Spent the week commuting to Reading (dump), and teaching this weekend, so no, sorry.
AbsintheWithoutLeave, Sep 10 2010
  

       there are people you know who are beginning to believe that [AWOL] and [po] are the same person!
po, Sep 10 2010
  

       Well - we'll just have to do more Halfcons until we disprove the Po-AWOL Jackson theory!
Jinbish, Sep 10 2010
  

       [Dub] cannot believe that I have not yet met either you [Jinbish] or AWOL. The one I really want to hug is [salachair], sorry but I want to do the slosh with the beautiful one!
po, Sep 10 2010
  

       Hey - I know where I am in the pecking order. And you have good taste. The members of the [salachair] clan are all great bods, with the fizziest of chat.   

       Well - maybe we can find a good excuse to persuade her to venture South. Never know - maybe get a bonus sibling too...   

       {I've always wanted to do a world H'bakers, past & present tour}
Jinbish, Sep 10 2010
  

       sorry, you = my lovely [Jinbish]   

       [Dub] is of course my very best friend in the real world.
po, Sep 10 2010
  

       {All embarrased,like}[po] Aw! chucks!{AEL}
1/x - There's no-one I'd rather be lost and confused with! - even if I do keep having to try to catch you out, [AWOL]
Dub, Sep 10 2010
  

       easily arranged!
po, Sep 10 2010
  

       //I want to do the slosh with the beautiful one//
Sadly, I've told you, I won't be there.
(We'd better dlete this one before the boss comes by.)
AbsintheWithoutLeave, Sep 10 2010
  

       Unfortunately, I'm stuck in the woods with a busted leg.I might have to give this one a miss(Or a airlift.)
skinflaps, Sep 11 2010
  

       Are we still doing this Sun12th at the OXO tower?. I may be able to get up there.
gnomethang, Sep 11 2010
  

       is it the same busted leg or a different one, flaps.
po, Sep 11 2010
  

       [skinflaps] If you can get there by any means, I'd get you home (whereever that is!) - Give me a bell!
Dub, Sep 11 2010
  

       skinny has a busted leg, and I an arm. What's up with us bakers? Who's next and what appendage I venture to guess?
blissmiss, Sep 11 2010
  

       I'll be there at 2.20... I've just spotted [po]'s link. Looks like I'll have to get the big pointy stick out to cut a swathe through the crowds. Listen out for the screams and cry for "For custard and the Halfbakery!"
Jinbish, Sep 12 2010
  

       16:04 I'm outside, there's a band playing.
Ian Tindale, Sep 12 2010
  

       If any straggling bakers are still up for joining us, we're moving on... Not quite sure where. Possibly the 'The Mad Hatter'... I dont have directions:- think of it as an initiative test.
Jinbish, Sep 12 2010
  

       In the mad hatter now.
Ian Tindale, Sep 12 2010
  

       What a great time! I'm guessing some failed the initiative test. ([po] and [Dub] almost did too, but [JinBish] found us) - [LOST] was good to his name   

       Menu: Arduino x 1
CCDs x 8 (guess, certainly more than 4)
Discussions about business including custard discusions x numerous
  

       Cheers, and don't forget - The first rule of HalfCon is... There is NO first rule for HalfCon, just an advisory note about general hygiene.
Dub, Sep 12 2010
  

       Ditto great time. Top company. Thanks chaps & chapsesses!   

       Well done [Dub] for putting out the call. For any that missed it - we'll get you next time!
Jinbish, Sep 12 2010
  

       //busted ... and I an arm// [blissmiss]   

       Defending the honor of the 'bakery? Do tell...   

       (Hope you heal rapidly.)
csea, Sep 13 2010
  

       Thanks all - it's always a real pleasure to meet up with everyone - good company and chat - I particularly liked the 'Tomato' naming idea for Ian's 'kit-shop'. I got home and realised I was starving - should have nicked one of Jinbish's chips!
zen_tom, Sep 13 2010
  

       [zen_tom] Yeah, me too
Dub, Sep 13 2010
  

       [po], yes, it was nice of Boris to put that on for us
Dub, Sep 14 2010
