Weight and Stuff Report – 18 September 2014

Down a bit today…

I had a bit of a different day today. I spent it at a technology user group thingy in a Newcastle hotel. Some interesting stuff was discussed and presented, with a small enough group for what would normally be presentations to turn into more open discussions. It’s the first time this particular event has come to Newcastle, but they’re planning to make it a regular thing, which would be good. You’d be amazed how many London-based people think everywhere in the north is the same place, leading to helpful invitations to events in Liverpool, which takes longer to get to than London from here.

Lunch was provided, and so was a drink[1] afterwards. I also won a toy in a prize draw, which I might report on later.

More river-based stuff for today’s photo. Not quite as much fun as the Zapcats, but this police boat was moving quite nicely:
