Arrived at client site: five minutes past noon.
Exchange information store mounted successfully: half past midnight.
Sorry if anyone was expecting to see me at the BSFA meeting.
For my own reference, really.
BMI 127 depart LHR 13:30 arrive DUB 14:50 Fri Oct 13th.
That won't involve too much rushing at either end.
BMI 130 depart DUB 17:35 arrive LHR 18:55 Mon Oct 16th.
That'll allow reasonable amounts of time for getting confused at the Porterhouse at Monday lunchtime.
BMI 132 depart DUB 19:55 arrive LHR 21:15 Mon Oct 16th.
That'll allow a bit more, but I won't be home until nearly midnight.
Each of these itineraries are £63.55.
Travel to and from Heathrow will be about £15-£20, and travel from the airport via Dublin to the hotel and back will be some similar-sized handful of Euros. Neither are complicated enough to need planning in advance.
Convention membership €25, which is about £17.
Hotel, three nights at €99 is €297, which is about £200.
So that's just over 300 quid, plus whatever I eat and drink. And, as I discovered in 2004, Forbidden Planet is round the corner from the pub in Dublin.
It's all looking a bit believable. I might even throw in a few days with my brother in Kilkenny too.
When you plug the USB cable into your PDA and nothing happens, before you reboot everything and then phone Douglas for help, try checking that the other end of the cable is actually plugged into your laptop.
I seem to have booked a convention membership and a hotel room.
I've texted my brother in Kilkenny, and I'll book flights when I know if he's around for a few days before or after the con.
