Beatrix, where are you based? There should be a user group
near you. There only about once a month, so it's not much of a time commitment unless you decide to get more involved.
I'm in London. Thanks for that; I think I signed up for one of those yesterday. I signed up for a few! It's a bit intimidating, but I'm sure the first time is the hardest. You all seem to get a lot out of it.
It is intimidating, but most of us are just regular people. Just excuse yourself, say hi and tell someone your name. Tell them it's your first time and they'll take care of you.
I'm going to do it. I'm also going to check back that Nick H and BWFC go to theirs ;-).
Beatrix, I'm just reporting in that the SQL Relay in Manchester was attended successfully.
BWFC - I completely forgot to get your details as I was there too and we could have met up, sorry
I was due to go the SQL usergroup in Leeds tonight but it's been moved to next Wednesday now and I can't make that date - I'll try and get to the next one in the new year.
BTW - I thought the SQL Relay event in Manchester yesterday was great. Some really informative bits and a demo of why not to use surface for your presentation!
Nick, I forgot too. It certainly would have been good to meet a fellow user. I'm debating whether to go to the Manchester user group on Thursday but it's the works night out on the Friday after so I might be pushing my luck with higher authority.....
On two occasions I have been asked, "Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?" ... I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.
