Well it was great and I met some fab people.  So hello to Shri, Artie, Cam and Mags, the smashing Steve, Will and Chris (who has an encyclopaedic knowledge of British popular music) from Netskills and of course the lovely people from TechDis.  It was a really useful two days and I learned a lot and did some serious ‘networking’ ahem!  The hotel was good and I tried not to get too excited at the thought that David Beckham may have sat on my dining chair (the England team have their pre-touranment camp there sometimes).  The Northumberland countryside was at its best and just stunning and even the weather was good, cold crisp and sunny.
