The Party in review, with pictures and movies.

Postby Rkiver » Sat Mar 05, 2005 11:51 am

Well the party was bloody excellent. Myself and NeoThermic arrived just after 6, and decided to go in, so we did, and spent the better part of 2 hours covering the place in Darwinia stuff. The photos that will be posted will give you all a better idea.

It was nice to finally meet those whom I have been talking to online for quite a while, and despite peoples claims they would be all shy, they got over it quickly when they realised we are all geeks anyway, some of us just have social skills too. Last night some people finally came out of their shells, and I can see a lot more gatherings occuring in the near future.

Chris, Tom, Mark, John, Andy,aka Introversion Software are one great buch of blokes, good sense of humour, and people I will definately be meeting in the future again. They were a little frightened by the level of hero worship that went on by some, but most of us just treated them like we do online, as a person, not some mythical gods, so they at least appeared to be having a blast.

The shirt that was designed by NeoThermic went down a storm, and the amount of stuff signed by IV last night was great. Iris we put in a request, the whole IV team will be signing a shirt and posting it to you. NeoThermic is to go down and organise it.

Also on a private, and evil vindicitive note, the whole IV team think Darwin00uk is a bit of an idiot for not getting the blatently obvious that he has been told multiple times, that is a direct quote by the way. NeoThermic, Icepick, Deepsmeg, Nitronium, Dave2, The GoldFish, elDiablo, Cold Fusion, LLammaboy, and pretty much every other beta tester, and even Chris' otherhalf, and Dr Sepulvade, aka Peter.

Also the Deepsmeg vs Icepick lightsaber/mop duel was caught on video, and is brilliant. Even Chris go photos of it.

I'd say most who attended do today. It was one excellent evening. Thanks for having us over.

Nice write-up, Rkiver, wish I was there! ^_^

THANKS A BUNCH, you guys!!! Once I receive it I'll post a photo with me wearing it for everyone to see! ^_^

Ok, time for the picture review from the ones I've taken. I took more video's than pictures, so here's a list of the best.


(Note: All images are thumbnails, click for larger if required)

First to the party was both me and Rkiver, so we help set up The Wall (TM)

Image

There's about 600 postcards there, and under normal light, it looks class... but lets remove the flash...:

Image

Looks like something out of Blair Witch Project, or as I managed to call it after a few shots of absinthe, Darwiniaproject... (don't ask).

Next is Mark finishing a speach:

Image

Then John has a go at taking a picture, and snaps a familiar face:

Image

(see 2265 for his first attempt, hehe )

This is a pic of all of us who went from the forums, with Icepick taking the picture.

From left to right: Dave2, LLamaboy, NeoThermic, Rkiver, The_Goldfish, and Deepsmeg.

Image

Finally, we gave Chris a lightsaber. His eyes light up with familiararity, which scared us alot:

Image

I'll post the movie list when I get them sorted.

I've re read this a few times and although I am deeply touched you've all taken time to discuss my oppinions,I dont understand what this paragraph means?

Especially this bit

"...not getting the blatently obvious that he has been told multiple times.."

and this bit..

"...Darwin00uk is a bit of an idiot.."

ENVY!

Looks like you all had a great time. And, just to be sure that it has been said enough (which may not be possible), congrats on a great game. You guys deserve to party into the wee hours of the night.

It was awesome!
Ive got a bunch of pics on my phone, I'll have to get a cable or something to transfer them off.

Also, I dont have a hangover! Ha!

Edit: Oh yeah, and I won that mop/lightsaber battle, NeoThermic just stopped recording before the end :P
