Who da thought you could have so much fun with so many nerds, or is that geeks? As it turns out lots, though the wine helped.
Last night riding on the coat tails of my brainiac Rob and the company he works for, went to the IT StarLight and Giant Steps fund raising do at the Hilton in the city.
Last year we went to the first one, about 200 people from various Sydney IT firms, this year there was 61 tables of ten people, you do the math.
How did you get so many geeks in such small room?
Starlight was getting cash for thier Fun Centres, which were invented here and only in Australian hospitals at the moment. They are wheely purple adjustable bubbles with games, movies and music in them, so bedridden kiddlins can amuse themselves. Got to see one first hand last month when visited young Hal after he broke his arm. If nothing else it kept SnowPea quiet and entertained durning it all.

I'm not sure if i should go, i probably come out of it more annoyed than i went in and if she mentions anything about being South Africa's 1994 Herb Woman of the Year, i may give her a very calming punch in the neck.
I tried to find out what LDM actually is, but all i could find was from the actual practioners. So not sure if its a useful thing or not. Lots of " remove toxins", "balance the body" and feel good words which don't mean a thing but makes you want to hug a dolphin while wearing a oversized black t-shirt with a wolf howling at the moon on it.
The big question at the end was a codebreaker, and extra clues were sold off. The company bought the second clue for our table but it wasn't used that much. TheCheap at half the price
nerds geeks had it sorted.Feel the brain power
Second clue...we don't need no stinkin' second clue..
