Derby Tattoo 2006

Not as good as hoped…
It was great to see Steve and Jayne again after 3 years (and Jayne’s sister) and to meet Claire and Richard again after somewhat less time. I think this my third? fourth? time there and it’s getting less.

No central area for the hand-poking (there was one guy doing that, I took about 8 pics and only 1 is half-decent), beer was allowed on the main floor, kids were allowed in (not that I have a problem with kids, but it’s indicative of maybe a need to lower the barriers of entry) and it was actually a lot less crowded than in previous years. There was room to move which – while nice – doesn’t make me want to go charging back next year. I took loads of pics but nearly all are ever so slightly blurred.. must have had more of a tremor today. A great one of Claire and Richard and another of all of us (without me obviously but that only enhances the image) so I’ll see what I can salvage tomorrow when I’m more awake.
Work is all caught up with – apologies for any delay should you be reading this – and tomorrow I see just how I can run a game in one screen and apps in another. Tomorrow… it’s 1:52am so that’s later today.


  1. Looking forward to seeing the pics, can you post them all somewhere as I’d like to compare the drawings Adam did with the tattoo?

    Good to see you, sorry you didn’t get to see me squeal. :)

  2. Claire – email me your real email address? I’m not putting any online. There is a good one of the 5 of you (Steve/Jayne/Jayne’s sister/ you/Rich) and then a few of you which I’ve zipped to my site for you to download.

    I had to recover them from the camera’s card as I accidentally wiped them in the reinstall. Torrents are a wionderful thing :)
