The Discworld Jamboree

Admin

The Thudgame Admins are getting ready to pack their bags, shrink their laptops and head off to the Discworld Jamboree to partake in the head-spinningly Discworldliness that happens in Wincanton several times a year.

Now we have an ulterior motive - we'll be announcing a new thing under the Roundworld sun, namely bringing a bit of the Disc to real life and all things being well you'll be able to participate in it right there on site.

Now for those who can't make it to Wincanton (perhaps you've built yourself into a cabinet of your kitchen and are still wondering how to extricate yourself? Who knows, but you can't make it over - we understand.... Wink Laughing ) keep your knickers on (knowing we would appreciate the gesture but it isn't necessary coz...) we'll be soft-launching here on Thudgame.com imminently. You're family so we'll take care of you Very Happy

We just need to tidy up a bit of code, a few graphics - the usual thing, and we'll present it to you first right here! Cool

In the meantime we just wondered who we'll see at the Jamboree?
(Hey, that rhymes...)

It's Dewi's actually so that would have to be "Welsh ego" Wink

@Ratty: This is probably the only time you'll ever here a bloke say this to anyone, but "ours is smaller than yours!" Very Happy Laughing

This is assuming Mr eBay delivers later this week; otherwise Dewi's stuck with his trusty ole 9110. Wink

ego

Surely a facet of any healthy, psychologically stable human being of any nationality?

Sadly duties dictate that I shall not be joining the throngs at this years Jamboree though the program seems eminently amusing.

Re: The Discworld Jamboree

ango ego is the ego that is inherently part of anglos due to their culture and genes.

Pride is what you are thinking about i.e. the fact that you express that you are anglo. In fact it is "Jingo" (as in the book) since ego is latin for "I"

Obey your site admins, folks Wink

Now if only I could pack everything into my bag... I managed fine when I was going on Duke of Edinburgh, camping in serious conditions over 4 days - so why cant I fit in enough stuff to perhaps keep the rain off for a couple of nights?

Re: The Discworld Jamboree

it's impossible,get a new bag,maybe 3 times as big,then it'll just fit in.after the DJ when you get home try to fit it into the old bag and it'll work.

I'm still not 100% certain I'll be getting in: I only got round to sending off the ticket form at the end of last week (oops...), so I guess they were never going to have time to post me the tickets, but I had hoped I'd get an email saying "come pick them up on the door". As it is, I dunno for sure whether my form even got through...

So if people see a strange bloke hanging around outside the jamboree, now you'll know why Wink
