You've probably been told Duckie, but images in sigs don't go down well here.
As far as this meet-up goes, I'll see where I stand after exams. The only thing is that then I'd have to go to a new forum and meet a load of new people... but the name didn't really swing it for me. I don't want...
The sad thing is that it'll probably be a hit at the box office the same as those other films, and then, the inevitable sequel will emerge. I should think they'll only take the "bunch-of-schoolkids-with-weapons-on-a-desert-island" theme and probably tone the violence down a bit to appeal to a...

I'm unsure of what'll be going on as regards Uni at that time, but chances are I'll be able to make it without any problems. I'd like to stay over on the Saturday night if possible too, so if I could be noted in italics as coming on Saturday and staying, then that would be great.
We could get "The Big O" - but then, that would mean Adult Swim would actually have to notice the show exists...
They could bring on Big O though, seriously. Then we could have Roger Smith and his giant robot on UK TV again...
Going up North sounds good. How many people from further up the country would be able to make it to a place like Manchester if we did all get the train from London?
What kind of numbers are we talking about?
