Best signup Note fields so far (leaving them anon):
"Looking like a sell out, thought I'd best register before all the places went."
And the winner so far:
" If I have to sell my boyfriend's children, I'll do my best to be there. :-) "
| 5:27 pm on Jul 3, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I am not to sure the winner so far is exactly anon.... I put a name with it immediatly. And I am fairly new here!
| 5:30 pm on Jul 3, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Heh! And don't blame me for the name, Pandia really named it in their article last year. When I read it, it immediately struck me as catchy. Since the major players on the web had gotten by with names like Yahoo and Google, I figured we could have a little fun, too.
AND, the .com was available.

Ok this is probably a dumb question...but if I reserve a room online right now- are they gonna charge my credit card in advance, or will they wait until October? I'd like to reserve a room just in case I can swing the conference, but don't want to waste the money if they are gonna charge me right now just in case I don't end up going.
I guess I've done too much backpacking and am clueless about hotels that take actual reservations!

Heck no, Mackin, you know I'm a squatter.
But I will admit that I wasn't thinking much about the corporate types that had to write up "attended pubconference" on their expense report. (That really hit the fan at the sister event -BARconference.)
| 5:58 pm on Jul 3, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I answered my own question by calling their 1 800 number-- you can reserve now and if you need to cancel you have like 48 hours before the date to do that. Very cool! I'm reserved! So I guess I'll be seeing you all in London...

No problem, there i think my accountant will fix that, they really do a great job over at "Arthur Andersen" :) i got to hand it to them, my company have increased the profit with 3000% in 2 months, great.

Just leave the "pub" out: "WebmasterWorld Internet Marketing Conference" sounds very stuffy. ;)
One wonders about Anonymous... Anonymous has written alot of VERY odd books (over a shockingly long span of time!), and is also responsible for saying some very strange things through the years. I'm thinking Anonymous must be friends with Them... After all, They say an awful lot of things anonymously. They're clearly in cahoots with Anonymous, whoever They may be.

I wont make it to pubcon this time around but i really did enjoy the irvine,california get together :( if i went this year id wanna play stump the search engine guru ;) ya's and na's would be voted from the crowd so if the guru said the wrong answer would be entertaining with a drinking seo crowd ;)
| 11:21 pm on Jul 3, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I used to live there, and I have been to that Pub before too!!!
Now I live in Texas (Native...) and cannot afford the plane tickets.
Anyone in Texas interested in getting together?

Or let them know that "pub" is short for "internet publishing".

Okay, if itīs not too late:
I signed up.
So, heini, you are not the only guy from Grrmoney!
--> The last pubconference was a success, no doubt, and I canīt miss successes...
[BTW: I canīt believe, that heini and I are the only guys from Grrmoney, that big country but almost nobody signs up? Strange...]

Crazy_Fool, hell yeah I'll get the beers in...if someone can pick me up at the airport I might try to bring a couple of barrels of the real stuff over with me...
Hey Brett, about that 40 something pounds, I'm trying to get approval from the CFO to pay for everything...if not, then I have to save up...how much does it go up to after July?
Oh yeah, I wrote on the internal Purchase Order, that seo bloke, Brett somethingorother, is holding a really important conference in London, and it is really important that I be there... When they ask who Brett is, I'll just say, "He is, Mr SearchEngine!"
| 12:22 pm on Jul 5, 2002 (gmt 0)|
We've actually not decided yet backus. Whatever it is, we'll double it just for you! lol That would be good if you can get your boss to pay for it. As mivox says, Pub is for Publisher.
>Grrmoney - almost nobody signs up? Strange.
We've always had a small following from Germany. We are big in Scandinavia, UK, and a sprinkling from most of the other countries in Europe (france being the lone exception).

thank you for bringing up this great idea, thank's a lot for choosing europe! :-) Here is the next german to follow and I did a posting on www.suchmaschinentricks.de
Will the englishmen accept euros? I am curious about the result of the euro-controversy which is going on big time in england. *fg*

gutten tag Bernie
i'm afraid you'll have to get your euro's converted at a Buero De Change (Bank) before or when you get here but it wont be a problem for you
its only a matter of time before we get euros here my friend

Can we write this off as a business exspense? heh ;)

Following the conference, I'd like to go on and spend a few days in Rome & environs. I see that I can fly roundtrip from Stansted on Ryanair for Ģ59.98. This seems incredibly low. Is it for real? Should I book it? Are there any huge drawbacks flying Ryanair? Any advice or suggestions from our British members would be most welcome. Many thanks.
| 3:38 am on Jul 7, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Go check out this story [news.bbc.co.uk].
Any airline that would have such a cool promotion and have a sense of humor about it would get my business! :)
(Safety records? Flight delays? Bah!)
| 4:04 am on Jul 7, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I was just looking at the ryanair site, and they had a booking period covering a couple more days and a "use by" period through October 17. Do they change these parameters weekly, or is this a one time special?
| 7:41 pm on Jul 7, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Wow that Ryanair special is fantastic- I'm not even 100% sure I'm going, but just bought a ticket from Genoa to London for $25! Now that is some motivation to do an Italy/England trip on October...The special ends tomorrow- anybody interested in doing some euro-travel to coincide w/ the pubconfernece should check it out.
| 11:55 pm on Jul 7, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Well, what the Hell? I went ahead and booked it. I've been over much of Europe - just never got to Italy. Might as well for this price.
| 7:57 am on Jul 8, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Go60Guy take Ryanair and come to Italy!!!
you can even find cheaper than Ģ59,
I'll take Ryanair for Pubconference and I found tickets for 64.27 Euro ( tax included ). If you 'd be able to fly at 7.10 a.m. from London it would be 44 Euro!!!
| 8:17 am on Jul 8, 2002 (gmt 0)|
A key point with the budget airlines - don't be late for your flight - there are no refunds and no automatic transfers - you'll need to pay again. Watch the timing of your connections, too.
There are often awful traffic delays (mainly caused by a high density of traffic) around London so allow plenty of time to get to the airport. You have been warned.
Overall, the budget airlines are great value for money (don't expect any frills) and are doing very well in Europe.

Whoops and the triplicate e's there. When an email client errors when sending a bcc like that, you never know if it actually sent it, or just errored and stopped. That happened twice.
