Hope te make it also. Most people staying in the Novotel hotel...when will be most discussions between forum members, 3rd June (before the conference) or 4th June afterwards...
I'm a newbie on this topic so have to experience once...
Anyway I have advantage compared to US-UK high flight rates, can take a boat from the Netherlands and probably start rowing at the end of May ;)

Booked and ready to go! - I was really praying for PubCon 7 to be in London but I'm still happy with 6.5.
I hope we get good notice for the full 7.0 event as I now imagine it'll be in the US of A.
| 1:50 pm on May 12, 2004 (gmt 0)|
I will be there, I think that my London travel card will stretch that far :) I can think of a few others that will be there as well.
| 2:03 pm on May 12, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Shame I go to turkey for the week for a much needed holiday from seo on the 4th so count me out ;-)
A bit more notice would have been welcomed.
| 5:31 pm on May 12, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Noooooo! My boss enjoyed Orlando so much he was going to fly us both to London in the fall for PubCon 7. I really doubt he'll be able to leave on such short notice which means....there goes my chance to see London, no way I can pay for it on my meager salary:(
Oh well, hope the rest of ay all have a great time and have one for me while you're there!

OK, booked it Wed-Sat Novotel and looking forward to the hotel bar and revisiting the delights of Hammersmith.
Still tussling with BA website though... (grrr, cc must be issued in the country you are departing from).
| 9:03 pm on May 12, 2004 (gmt 0)|
those that aren't finding the cheaper flights from the us - push your return date ahead to the sixth or 7th if you can. It will drop the price dramatically to wait until monday to come back...
| 9:29 am on May 13, 2004 (gmt 0)|
I'm 99% in. Waiting on the travel agent to confirm prices and reservations @ the Novotel.
ThomasB, I'll be at the bar.. but would not mind doing the floors of SeS too.
Will look it up and see if I can score the free floor passes.

I'm not going :( but if anyone is travelling down to London by rail on the West Coast line you should be aware of major disruption from 29May to 06June.
London Euston - Milton Keynes - Rugby - Nuneaton - Lichfield Trent Valley - Stafford - Liverpool, Manchester, Holyhead, Scotland
London Euston - Coventry - Birmingham New Street - Wolverhampton
More info at nationalrail.co.uk
Better off flying I think.
| 11:55 am on May 13, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Tell me about it. No info, just a recorded message saying they wont know the times unitil the 19th of this month.
Chiltern, from Birmimgham to Marylebone are OK it seems.
| 12:05 pm on May 13, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Ukgimp I will by flying over could ask the pilot to pick you up ;) or you could get a bus :)
| 12:11 pm on May 13, 2004 (gmt 0)|
I know you are from up-narth, so I was unsure whether airports had filtered up that way and if you had progressed from steam powered transport.
It seems you have, but I think I will be OK. Thanks for the offer though :)
| 12:19 pm on May 13, 2004 (gmt 0)|
it's my private jet ;)

What time does the bar open?
| 3:20 pm on May 13, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Its normally a last man standing setting, when he falls the bar closes :)
| 4:27 pm on May 13, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Craig it should be in London, unfortunately that wasn't the case in Orlando, although the 7-11 saved the party.
| 5:08 pm on May 13, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Thought the pubs closed around midnight in London.

... room service in the lobby ...

Booked. 3-5 June, Novotel.
Stupid Thameslink site (train airport/London) refused my reservation because international travellers have to book 14 days in advance?!

Legacy of World War One.
Happily times change and a lot of places in London have late licences now - until 2am, 4am and later.
| 10:32 pm on May 13, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Closing times for bars is not a problem. We just have to load our minibars in the rooms.
| 10:41 pm on May 13, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Hehe, man it really shows we're getting into a routine... nothing shall keep the SEO from his drink :)
| 3:01 am on May 14, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Looks like I'll be making it.
Shrirch I registered for the free floor pass today through Jupiter media.
Not sure yet if it will be Thur-Sun or Mon, going to wait another week and see where the fares are. Can fly for $400CDN from Toronto.
| 10:58 am on May 14, 2004 (gmt 0)|
AmericanBulldog, cool stuff. I'm registered too. In the process of booking tickets and the hotel room.
Arriving on the 2nd morning and leaving on the 5th night.
See you @ the bar.

Every year I would see the notice about PubConf posted and I would start arranging to go... Then something would come up. Now that I've moved to London nothing will stand in my way!
| 11:40 am on May 15, 2004 (gmt 0)|
>>something would come up
Same here, but this time around I couldn't go across town for a few days at that particular time. Shame, I've always wanted to see the English countryside and I'd love to see everyone again.
Best deal I found on fares when I was checking was leaving Tuesday (which gives rest up time overnight) and coming back Monday - $834 RT non-stop British Airways from LA couldn't be better with a couple others very close to that. Best thing I did for Boston was get in a couple days early, it was quite a memorable experience all around and just hanging around informally with folks made me feel right at home.
Next one for sure no matter what, in fact I'll hunt up a room-mate well in advance and make sure I can get there extra days in advance.
| 12:45 pm on May 15, 2004 (gmt 0)|
anyone willing to sort me a ticket in exchange for 4-5 hours of work? :)
| 3:27 pm on May 15, 2004 (gmt 0)|
OK suckers, I'm in.
You'll recognise me as the most handsome guy in the room... but don't let that put you off talkin to me ok 'cos, like Zappa say's, '... there's more of us ugly mother-lovers than you, so watch out!...'
(What have I done, oh no)
