Hi, Anybody looking for Group registering the SQL Bits 8 event in Brighton? According from their website we can have 20% off for Group Register (more then 5 people). Anybody up for it? Thanks

Same as Fatherjack for me - hoping to get there, just not sure what days and how. Presuming you are UK based - if you get along to your local SQL Server User Group, they too will have discount codes.

So... who else is going to be there on Thursday, and which session(s) have you booked in for? I'm in for the High Availability stuff.

I went for the Performance Monitoring and Troubleshooting session. (Not that any of *my* servers has ever had a performance problem, obviously ;)

Thought I'd bring this back to the top of the pile :) I am going to be there. I'm really looking forward to it, although I'm missing the [crappy code games][1] which I'm sure will be a lot of fun. [1]: http://www.crappycodegames.com

I bet your session clashes with something else I want to go to... And I'm right. Two other sessions... Brad McGehee on resurrection, and Gavin Payne on virtualisation. Decisions, decisions... http://www.sqlbits.com/information/Agenda.aspx

Is there anyway we can meet up so we can start putting faces to names? Obviously I don't need to meet @Fatherjack!!!

as far as I know @Matt Whitfield and the #SQLSoton crew were hoping to be involved with the community corner so I would suggest that we meet there. Maybe we could coordinate it over twitter with the #ASKSSC tag?

I've no idea how to find anyone (no smartphone for me, so no mobile twitter et al), so @Fatherjack's suggestion is a good one - meet at the community corner thing. I look pretty much like my gravatar and am about 6 foot tall, so shouldn't be too hard to find. Anyone who sees me, come and talk to me - I will be coming on my own and I don't bite.

I have been told I look like a mug so yep, my gravatar is accurate too. I'll probably have a RedGate or Plain Lazy T-Shirt on, and quite possibly shorts. Oh BTW, @Kev Riley looks 'exactly' like his gravatar ;)

I've met @Fatherjack, @Matt Whitfield and @Kev Riley before (is Kev going? I've lost track...) We just sort of found each other last time - I found @Fatherjack by walking in through the door at SQLBits 7.

I too look pretty much like my gravatar, except the specs are normally clearer than that... How many of us are staying in the same hotel?

they need to soon if they haven't. SQLBits7 was over subscribed. If they get no luck via the website then they might be able to get in on a cancellation if they are lucky

Thanks for the advice! One of our consultants are already booked, but he is not active in this forum yet.

I'm there for all three days. Anyone know if there are any evening events planned? Thinking SQL related karaoke or dominoes?
