Looking forward to meeting you guys :) Should be fun introducing you to other guys on the team - we can all share the pains of car physics and dynamic collisions ;)

Changed my flight to the 1st and booked my hotel for an extra night. You guys better be worth at least $100, or else no fair.

Scott.

LOL - you are so not getting your moneys worth out of us ;) I think it's cool you did that - we will try to make it extra special just for you!

Just me again.
I'm guessing the AGDC is at the Melbourne Convention Centre again. So I'll probably meet up there.

Is there place we are eating at along the water where those towers that blow the fire at night?

Like I said I'll meet at the MCC, so I don't get lost [:)]

That is Crown Casino. Southbank is past that - but along the river. I will make sure to be at the front door of the convention center at 6:15 to meet anyone - grab my mobile!

Sumea AGDC Challenge #1: Barf on Bill Ropers shoes!

Zaph's picture

Hi Kids,
I'll be at the AGDC this year (duh!) but I can't make any of the evening meetups this time, so hopefully there will be a few Sumeans wandering over to Crown for lunch on Thursday/Friday like last year.

Hope to catch up with a bunch of you all again!

souri's picture

Any photo's of the Sumea meetup? [:D]

UniqueSnowFlake's picture

None of Souri because he wasn't there [:0]

But yeah I'm sure there will be some photos when moonunit finds a computer to upload them.

Was a pretty fun night evern with out souri [:p]

Oh and Jacana don't take it personaly, I would of done it to who ever was standing there [:o)]

MoonUnit's picture

rest assured piccys were taken, once i can get a moment to resize them etc. ill upload a few (the only reason i even have time to go on thisevening is because of the wonderfull age issues involved of not being able to attend the party night).

LiveWire's picture

we've got some good ones so far (today being 1:36 saturday morning and me having had a few drinks), inlcuding some interesting pics and fottage from the big party night. giant sump suits, mechanical surfboards and a ps2 sing star comp - which i atempted to enter but the song my mate chose i had never heard before so i was at a total loss. oh well, the free drinks card made up for it. anyway, really needing to get some sleep now. latters

MoonUnit's picture

Oky doky well confrence is over and since both the qantum and AIE guys made it into the unsigned game finals they are currently at the gala dinner thingy (the awards and all that are now a part of the final night dinner thing (which costs a whole bunch extra to get into)), thus i am not out tonight and able to post these up for your enjoyment :P

I apologise that i met many people over the course of the confrence and dont remember absolultely everyones name, also there were more photos taken i just didnt want to upload a whole ton so if your not here apologies, the photo(s) that featured you was either dodgy or didnt include other people (and thus to get the maximum of people here, i uploaded group shots only). you can allways PM me if you knew a shot was taken of you and you would like it (btw if a shot of you was taken by cheryl, that was my camera she was using so i have those pics).

breif report, we had food at the southbank foodcourt and met up (i personally arrived a bit late :P ), then after that proceeded onto the sports bar (where these pics were taken) in crown.

the back row from left is jeremy and mik from qantum and then scott (reznor) uhh not from qantum. The front row Craig (left) and Tim (right).

on that note if anyone is up here and would like to tell me their name, ill update this post :P

Oh and one last thing, bars moonunit stayed in: 2 bars moonunit was refused entry/ kicked out of: 2
all in all id call that a win enough ;)

as for the sumea challenge of barf on bill ropers shoes... well since i wasnt at the big party night or the final dinner someone else will have to fill you in on how that went :P

LiveWire's picture

nope, never barfed on, so that failed.

as for names: it's mik, not mike, and in the last pic in the front row is Craig (left) and Tim (right). the radom guy trying to deep throat the glass is Mark.

rezn0r's picture

Wow, it's me being thrashed. Nobody took pictures when I was well-dressed and composed... which was at least some of the time.

[:P]

Scott.

PS. We have a photo of us pretending to barf on Bill Roper from the Gala night. He was very confused.

Jacana's picture

Bill was great about it :) I ended up telling him on Friday morning about the challenge. He was happy because he wore his best shoes for the occasion.

He was a really cool guy - I was impressed. He was very much a dag and good for some laughs.

At the dinner he was running around with two nerf guns doing the whole Neo thing with em. Then he started to use random people as shields when he was shooting other people. At one stage during the night he came up to me laughing and said "Some guy I don't know just came up and apologised to me for not being drunk enough to barf on my shoes."

In the end we did get some really good shots with bill and the guys from scooterama :)

We should at least win a prize for getting Moonie into a few pubs - and for even getting bill into the whole barf thing!

Bill had one amazing nerfgun skill... he could hold a nerf gun in each hand, and cock the gun with his thumb, so he was firing continuously from both hands - Everyone else needed two hands to use a single gun!!

hello all,

thanks to all AIE guys and other ppl like MoonUnit who showed us QANTM guys around Melbourne.

Hunting Bill down was awesome and the comradery between students was good to see. I wonder which of you I'll end up working with.

I've also decided that Joel will be one of my subordinates... perhaps in QA. :)
