Have arrived in Liverpool fine, baulked at the cost of sandwich at Manchester Station so instead enjoyed KFC after checking into the hotel. Am staying in the Adelphi hotel in the middle of Liverpool which is a bit grim – full of stag dos, grannies and for two nights only geeks. It reminds me of the Pennsylvania hotel I stayed in, while visiting New York for ICMC 2010.
Enjoyed an evening drinking far to much Pepsi in the bar while discussing suitably geek topics such as Arch, expectations of online privacy and a possible explanation for the slowness of the bar based on incorrect compiler flags.
All in all a good start to OggCamp 2012.
