    Alex, well up for that buddy. We need a G&T callsign to identify oneselves, we’re not all as recognisable as the G&T main cast!

    A badge with your G&T username should work. I made myself a Si badge last time I was there, so people could turn away quickly and avoid direct eye contact as necessary.

    I’ll be wearing a t-shirt with the logo to the left on it for most of the weekend. I’ll also be the one carrying a new wife.

    You shouldn’t use any of this to identify me, though, as I don’t want to meet any of you.

    No, there won’t be any way to pay by credit or debit cards in the merch room. There are cash machines in the local vicinity, but for you international peeps, it’s best to just account for merch in cash. :)

    The company I worked for selling classic car parts at events used to hire a mobile chip and pin machine (connects using mobile phone networks), was about £50 for a 4 day rental.

    I know fan-club funds are limited but may be worth doing for one DJ so you can weigh up how much more (if any) was made by having the capability there, as we found out doing events people are generally lazy and also far more likely to impulse buy a few things if they can whack it on a card ;-)

    Would also be useful for the auction, personally I’d be much more inclined to bid for all that lovely stuff I cant afford if I could whack it on the old monthly plastic…

    This is my first Dimension Jump too. Yep, card’d be nice for merchandise. (While I’m paid at the end of the month the cheque will likely not have cleared by the 3rd. I wish the boss would just pay this into my account directly – it’s quicker that way but he does like his cheques…)

    That being said I probably won’t buy all that much.

    I think it’s probably a good thing for my wallet that I can’t buy things by credit card.

    I know that we’ll end up running into each other anyway but is there gonna be an unofficially official G&T drink/photo? Just so we have it for the memories (or police identification).

    Oh no. Just 2 weeks till Dimension Jump. But I woke up this morning and all my many years of love for the programme seems to have fallen out of my brain and been replaced with a love for Last of the summer wine. (but only the episodes featuring seymore utterthwaire.)

    Such bad timing. Has this happened to anyone else? I only hope my love for the show can be regained in less than 14 days, or I’m really stuck.

    Thanks Cozi! I completely forgot about the car parking! Putting that in the sat nav when I get home!

    I’ve decided to wear a Sonic the Hedgehog t-shirt tomorrow and a Megaman wristband (just so you can recognise the pixelated blue guy) so there’s something recognisable upon my person so if you see me, say “Hi” or at least tell me to “Fuck right off”.

    Must say I’m also pretty psyched about Tony Hawks. I probably have loads of questions to ask but I’m more than happy to hear him tell some strange tales from quite a unique career.

    That’s awesome, Jon. Was that your idea?

    It was an amazing weekend. I think I spoke to everyone at least once over the course, and it was excellent to meet so many new people, especially Mabel, Annie and Cozi, with their impeccable taste in Red Dwarf websites.

    Our frankly ridiculous DwarfCast should be up tomorrow.

    #207140

    Cappsy – Isla and Sydney were signing at the same table, and had a system of “pass it along” for the next autograph going on. I completely confused them in this flow, Isla passed it and I intercepted span the page upside down, and said “could you sign it like this, so it will be upside down please.” Sydney said her hello’s and laughed, turned the page back the correct way, and I said “No seriously” and I turned it upside down again in front of her, as I said “because your character had everything wrong” and she laughed again and said “ok, let me see if i can write it backwards.” So she started signing by writing the letters out starting at the final N of StevensoN, and continued copying across reading from her upside down printed name on the booklet to work it out. Which is a pretty convoluted way about things, but I think the fact that she did that + her answer in the group Q&A to the question “would you like to be in Red Dwarf again?” “Well I died!” makes her my favourite of the female guest stars at the weekend. I’ve got a little bit of an Irene crush going on now. (Sadly she fell down the hotels left lift shaft on the way out, the one that wasn’t working all weekend.)

    I liked the floor. With a rolled-up jacket for lumbar support, I slept like a baby. Certainly better than the cube, I mean couch, in the foyer on Saturday. I thought of knocking on your door on the off-chance you were awake and would let me in, but looked at the clock and thought better of it.
