By Spider on Friday, September 21, 2001 - 02:36 pm:

    Wow, Nate! Congratulations.

    Make sure you visit the Scottish Highlands at least once.

By Nate on Friday, September 21, 2001 - 03:29 pm:

    lucky to face the english winter?

By Dougie on Friday, September 21, 2001 - 03:44 pm:

    Beats the nuclear winter we'll be having here.

By Antigone on Friday, September 21, 2001 - 04:40 pm:

    Bummer, Nate.

    What's the assignment?

    Visit Paris.

By Nate on Friday, September 21, 2001 - 05:51 pm:

    and hamsterdam

    i'm consulting for an early adopter of our new product. java, asp and our proprietary workflow stuff.

    i'll miss the nola adventure, though. that's the big negative in my mind.

By agatha on Friday, September 21, 2001 - 06:55 pm:

    can't you still go?

    let's postpone. then i can go too.

By Nate on Friday, September 21, 2001 - 07:04 pm:

    can't postpone because of me.

    i can't go because it is right after i leave.

By heather on Friday, September 21, 2001 - 07:36 pm:

    let's plan another. for spring. in the west? in the north?

By Antigone on Friday, September 21, 2001 - 07:37 pm:

    Hey, we can do more than one, ya know...

    NOLA first, Portland next?

By sarah on Friday, September 21, 2001 - 07:50 pm:

    heather, are you going to London? tell me very soon if you're going to miss NOLA as well.

By sarah on Friday, September 21, 2001 - 07:51 pm:

    nate, is this a promotion? if so, congrats! i know you've been working your ass off, er, uh, i mean working like a dog lately.

    oh, and for chrissakes. please be careful.

    actually. you might be safer over there, ya never know.

By heather on Friday, September 21, 2001 - 08:22 pm:

    sarah, if you've sent email lately it's not reliable. try this if you want to write.

By patrick on Friday, September 21, 2001 - 08:56 pm:

    i was in london nate in October. Its not bad at all.

    If i may suggest some items of interest....(not sure how long you'll be there) but you can dig some good rock at "Club Wag"...i believe its in the Nottingham/Soho area, if i recall correctly.
    Chinatown rocks.

    Picadilly is overrated.

    A 2 hour train ride from Waterloo station to Dover is so god damn worth it. Spend the day and come back. The countryside is tremendous

    it's okay to be a tourist sometimes. england has some amazing museums and historic sites to visit.

    (*) robin hood museum in nottingham. presented as realistically as possible, including smell.

    (*) york cathedral and the surrounding area. no cars allowed, so you can walk down the middle of the street. the cathedral itself is a wonderfully gothic structure, i couldnt' see the inside because of the restoration back in 1999, but it must be finished now.

    (*) sterling castle in sterling, scotland. it's pretty far north, but it has the best view you'll get on the isle. gargoyles galore, and mary stuart (queen of scots) spent a good portion of her life there.

    (*) the cathedral in bath is built on the site where the first "english" king was crowned, in like 800 something.

    do go to the theater, and do use the underground. you can get anywhere using their public transport system.

    * * *

    do come to portland for sorabjifest 2002... it's looking like i won't be able to make nola (not with moving, parents and my boos taking a vacation) biut portland is wonderful and nice and centered on the west coast.

    i could even scout out some indie-pop shows.

    "I was in london nate in October"

    Patrick,are you trying to tell us,thats nates ass has aliases?

By Dani on Sunday, September 23, 2001 - 02:52 pm:

    Well, if Nate aint going to NOLA, I aint either. That was the only reason I was going. Yeah yeah I know, BIG surprise there.

    And of course to hang out with Jimbabe...{<:

By TBone on Monday, September 24, 2001 - 11:44 am:

    I'll totally put my vote in for another SF in Portland... Prefferably mid-May or later. I'm trying to figure out if it's sane for me to take that many days off school for the October one.

By agatha on Monday, September 24, 2001 - 12:03 pm:

    i'm down for portland.

By patrick on Monday, September 24, 2001 - 12:06 pm:

    shit im trying to scrounge money to get to Atlanta for the holidays. its been two xmas's in a row I havent been back. Grandma and grandpa are getting old. I just hate that to get back, head to NC and see her folks...all in all costs us around $1200 after airfares, car rentals and such, not to mention its xmas.

By pez on Tuesday, September 25, 2001 - 02:44 am:

    listen, anytime anyone wants to hang out in portland, drop me a line. my roommates don't mind too much as long as you add to the kitchen and clean up after yourself.

By patrick on Tuesday, September 25, 2001 - 11:36 am:

    can i watch vintage/stag porn in the living room?

By pez on Tuesday, September 25, 2001 - 02:37 pm:

    i don't know... don't know all of them very well yet.

    but some people might get a tad uncomfortable.

By Platypus on Tuesday, September 25, 2001 - 02:50 pm:

    add to the kitchen? Should I plan on bringing a hammer and some lumber? Maybe a little lime green paint?

By pez on Tuesday, September 25, 2001 - 02:52 pm:

    i meant food. we all share food at the house.

    but beware:
