    Hey Nic,
    Put me down for this one for now. Can't commit 100% at this stage though as I'm moving house that week.

    I would like to add, on behalf of PJ and I, a massive thank you to you Nicolas for the generosity shown by hosting this event. While there may be some element of bias or favouritism here, I hope this event will be a big success for you and hope I can make it along. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

    Cheers,
    Lambo

    Turning off "Allow highscores" on all machines, you know, for the sake of time...

    Look forward to it!
