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.

as a brit I am really impressed that so many of you guys are making your way way over here...
doing the tours an all that is cool.. you'll hace loads of laughs...
but if you really want to see london... you'll go to the dogs... i see that some of your excusions will cost you £40 (wow!)... why not get the tube-taxi to wimbledon (£10)
and go and see the dogs race - this is real british
we don't tend to sit on buses for 4 hours a day (unless i's raining really badly)
we have a laugh at the races and then go to some warm pub a laugh until we get kecked out
what i'm trying to say is this,
i don't want loads of americans coming to london and sitting on tour buses
i want loads of americans coming to london - having a laugh, betting on the dogs (pound a race) and enjoying the life the way we do
well thats my piece, i'm going to pubcon2 and i hope all you guys who have made the real effort to get there are going to have an amazing time
Wimbledon Stadium have said this: From 3rd October 2002 we'll be racing every Thursday evening.
if anyones up for the dogs then post your reply here or better still STICKY me

>>i don't want loads of americans coming to
>>london and sitting on tour buses
hmmm .... i've seen jerry springer so maybe keeping them on a bus aint such a bad idea :)
but more seriously, if anyone's interested in a bus tour, try the big bus company at www.bigbus.co.uk. they are very good. i had friends come over from denmark a couple of years back and took them on a tour with big bus co. cost is £15 per adult for whole day. get on and off as much as you like. they do group discounts for groups of 10 or more (price on application), so maybe someone can sort something out? tickets can be booked online as well.
i'd recommend you use all 3 routes and stop off to visit the tower of london. if you can get back to trafalgar square by 7pm, join the ghosts by gaslight pub crawl (2 hours). you won't really have time for much else.
it's a shame people are coming all this way then going home 2 days later. there is so much to see in london that a bus tour will only just scratch the surface. there's even more outside london. i've lived here 33 years and i've still not seen everything. if you can make it back here next year, try and book up for longer.

Without doubt, there is soooo much to see, besides the special guests at the conference.
It's impossible to do it all, so don't even try. There are plenty of Londoners and Brits with some great ideas for the "real" London and the must-see-while-you're-here places.
The top tourist attactions are always a good start to see many of those places you've heard about, but, that really is scratching the surface.
While you are at the conference, grab some of the "locals" and they'll give you their tips.
I look forward to meeting you there.

Last time I was only there for the day, and left early with a head full of new knowledge but cursing the fact that I was missing out on the evening 'session'.
If in doubt, hang the expense and stay overnight, you never know what will be discussed at the breakfast table:)

You didn't pick up on that Chris? That's what the 45 pounds covers (london prices you know) ;)
Thialand, singapore, australia, belgium. I think there is also one from Brazil(?). There are two others on the fence from south korea.

In that case I'll get the first round in:)

Did someone ask if it was a business deduction? D*mn straight, it is!! At Barcon, I know for a fact that Travoli cut a deal for a free trial of about 300k impressions to test a geographic market. That more than paid the company back for the airfare.

lol 4 eyes!
If we have any holdouts waiting, I'd be getting in a reservation. Some things transpired today that will really put us over the top.

Ticket bought! Very exciting, looks like I'm going no matter what, as I bought a Priceline ticket. Wanted to share the info, as the lowest fare I found elsewhere on the web, after extensive searching, was at a site called Bucketshop.com,($550 from Atl w/ tax) - but Priceline beat that hands down! $395 tax incl, direct on Delta from Atlanta to Gatwick. Anybody still looking for airfare should really give Priceline a try.

| 2:48 pm on Jul 11, 2002 (gmt 0)|
That's excellent - digging...
| 3:01 pm on Jul 11, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Holy cow - that beats my best Hotwire fare by over $200! I might have to try that.
| 4:27 pm on Jul 11, 2002 (gmt 0)|
If you do Priceline, remember to bid with the $100 or so for taxes in mind. I bid $300 to get that $395 total. And to think I was going to fly through Toronto w/ a loong layover for more money... Anyway you don't have much to lose by giving Priceline a low bid, worst case they email you and say no. I never thought they'd accept the $300!
| 1:01 pm on Jul 12, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Ya, priceline is a touch "different" (ok, goofy). You have to study it for a bit before "bidding".

WOW. This is the biggest thread on the forum. What an achievement.
