Let's Make Robots!

Campus Party 2013 LMR division

Campus Party has been awesome meetup-events for LMR members, and we have often been given .. very good conditions, only we should not write about that in public, because it's a complex world of sponsors and participants and dealings.

Those who went can confirm that it is really the coolest thing to meet up and .. it cannot really be expplained, but it's really, really awesome, despite any possible trouble, it has been really, really awesome to meet each other!

For some reason, I (Frits) have had a function as main contact to Campus Party, whilst others have taken great and amazing "I take this responsibility myself"-jobs for everything from creating banners, T-shirts, helping with this and that along the way to make freaking furious fantastic experiences for all who participates!

This year I am just too behind on too many levels, and I'd really appreciate if someone else would see what deals they could make, set up mailing lists / google website or similar for people to discuss in private how we should go as a team.

So, if you are up for it, please write something as a comment here - and a good next step would be to write that you have made some form of list or Google form or something to collect e-mail addresses and from there on we can see who should get in touch with the CP people etc.

I'll go if I can at all (which I do not see why I can not), and I'll pass on all info I have, but we need you guys to take charge completely if this is to happen. I hope you understand, and I beleive we can prove again that we are the funkiest nerds on the planet :D

Had a great day yesterday.

Will be making a few posts over the next few days when I get the chance to bust out the soldering iron (dangerous with small children around and no way of preventing them from getting near it too easily, I just wait until they are out of the house). Also ordered a few new parts online.

One thing I only just found out is that you can get a microsoft dreamspark account there, I did entirely by accident. I simply filled out one of the surveys at the microsoft booth saying I'm a student etc (which I am/will be) and got an email today with my dreamspark verification code and a code for the educational discount on the surface RT or pro. Was entirely unexpected, useful though. Finally I legally have access to visual studio pro without using a product key found via the googles. Has microsoft robotics studio on it, I hadn't even heard of that before, but its there. Might be worth a look for some of the younger guys still there.

Tomorrow is the day guys, went to train station to check times and prices. Aiming to leave St Neots by train at about 9:30 (forgotten exact time but there is one around then). Its apparently a 50 minute journey to kings cross without interruptions, I've had it be upto 2 hours though. Then Kings cross to the O2. Only staying for the day but making it at least.

It was worth it all just to see you again. 

It's crap, but something came up at work and I have to take a plane home now. 

Thanks for fish, and it was really worth it to see you.

We'll keep the table occupied Frits. Yeah, nice to see you again, even it was just a short time. With a little bit luck we will see us again next year, anywhere...
