Complaints about distance are relative. smile.gif

I don't understand why there is any whining about the city the event will be held in. As long as the venue has good transport links, what's the problem?

Wanting a meet to be in another city so one or two lazy or skint people can spend less time travelling (and making other people travel further and pay more) is pretty selfish. Let's be honest...... for all the info that is known about the event so far, I think that's all it can be.



Want it to be in a city other than manc? Put forward a good list of reasons why. I mean GOOD.

But short list is,

Roads are stupidly laid out
People tend to be more rude (obviously they are rude around the country but they seem more up their own bums than normal)

The rude thing is a huge generalisation, and it's one of the cleanest cities on earth, so i'm not sure about it smelling funny. Also, it's got a far lower crime rate than Manchester. It's expensive because it's better smile.gif

Anyway, despite my question , I have no objections to travelling to Manchester, i just figured London was better as it has better transport links. It would be interesting to see which city actually had a higher proportion of OCN members near it!

We could happily organise one for London, but the question is always Venue, Venue, Venue! If you have an idea of a good venue that is reasonably priced, suitable for 100+ people with machines, a few stalls for grub and businesses to promote and a section for overclockers + media, then let us know. (There's a reason iSeries is held in Telford, and why the MCMExpo gets 50k+ people through the doors at the Excel)

I know him in real life and I was pulling his leg.

Sorry if it comes across offensive to you but he would understand what I meant to it.

I'm aware of a few places. If i had a more accurate idea of what kind of expenditure you're looking for with the venue, i could be more helpful!
