Injuries, @media and other news

14th April 2005

Sorry for lack of posts recently - juggling umpteen projects is taking it’s toll. I’m gonna be away in Brighton to catch up with the Brit Pack chaps, and spend a brief bit of holiday time with Emma, who yesterday fell down a poorly-lit flight of concrete stairs at a Tewkesbury hotel and split her back open. Bloody gruesome injury. Rest assured we’re going to sue the bastards.

If you want to cheer her up, leave a quick “Get well soon” below, or leave any advice on how to sue evil do-ers. I’ll be grateful, and it’ll make me look even more caring.

On the upside, when I return I’ll be blogging about Tiger, more web outside the box, some very exciting new projects, a few tidy tricks I’ve been working on (if ever I find time to finish them) and even a competition. In the meantime, I’ll try and maintain the Logical Links, so keep an eye on them, but don’t be expecting no CSS Rebooting from my busy ass in May.

Finally, if you’re going to @media in June, I want to know. Drop a comment with your email address and I’ll see about working with booze-meister Oxton to properly organise some kind of official meeting-up-in-the-pub mailing list.

Get well soon, Emma. I’ll also be at @media. Can’t wait for your next web outside the box.

# Kate responded on 14th April 2005 with...

Ouch!  Get well soon, Emma!  And sue them for all they’re worth!

I’ll be at @media — just look for the surly American girl in the corner of all festivities.

# Matthew Pennell responded on 14th April 2005 with...

Get well soon, Emma - and while you’re recuperating at home during the day, don’t be tempted by all those adverts they show during ‘This Morning’...

“Have you had an accident recently that wasn’t your fault? Let us screw you over too…”

I’ll be at @media, all on my lonesome, so I’ll definitely be up for some booze-related evening malarkey (with a small ‘m’).

# Paul Watson responded on 14th April 2005 with...

I’m in the final stages of begging my boss to pay for me to go to @media - looks distinctly possible so long as he says ‘yes’ before it’s fully booked.

get well soon, Emma!

# Steven Marshall responded on 14th April 2005 with...

Get well soon, Emma :)
As for sueing the bastards, I find that the best way to do it is “until their wallet hemorrhages”.

Oh, and I’ll be another “on my lonesome”-er at @media, and would much appreciate some pub-meetery with Da Peoples.

# Andyk responded on 14th April 2005 with...

I *should* be at @media if I ever get round to ordering the tickets… ;)

Get well soon, Emma!

# Stephen responded on 14th April 2005 with...

I’ll be @media-ing, and am intrigued to find out just how debauched these gatherings get.

Emma’s injury does indeed sound rather gruesome - hope she’s on the mend.

# Mark Boulton responded on 14th April 2005 with...

Get well soon Emma - sounds bloody nasty.

I’ll be at @media so i’ll be up for a swift half. You’ll have to find a pretty large pub at this rate Colly!

# Veerle Pieters responded on 14th April 2005 with...

Emma, get well soon!

I’ll be at @media also and if I remember correctly I already promised on bringing some beer money ;-)

# Peter J.Lambert responded on 14th April 2005 with...

Keep your chin up, Emma.

I’ll be at @media.

Looking forward to meeting you, or anybody, to be honest.

# Karl responded on 14th April 2005 with...

Get Well Soon, Emma!
I’m a lurker here but I’ll be going on my lonesome to the @media event too - just need to sort a cheap deal at a nearby hotel now… can’t wait.

# Rob Waring responded on 14th April 2005 with...

Get well soon, take them to the cleaners :)

I’ll be around London altho not actually @media-ing due to lack of cash and not working in the web dept at my company. However beer is good and I know of a random, good pub.

# Les responded on 14th April 2005 with...

Youcher!  Hope you get better soon Emma - that sounds like a bad ‘un.

I’ll be at @media - looking forward to putting names to faces over a few pints…

# dotjay responded on 14th April 2005 with...

Hmmm, beer. Sounds good.

I’ll be at @media… I’m trying to get around to sorting out somewhere to stay before everywhere gets booked up! Can’t really be staying with family or friends after a booze-up with a load of people I’ve (mostly) never met. Looking forward to putting names to faces (sneaky link plug - don’t be shy).

Get well soon, Emma… sounds nasty.

# Andy Moreno responded on 14th April 2005 with...

I’ll definately be @media, got the tickets. I’d be up for some sharing of stories.

Emma, sue those scum to the end of the planet. And get better soon.

# Blair Millen responded on 14th April 2005 with...

Split open?  Sounds horrendous… a quick convalescence to you Emma.

Got my ticket booked and it would be nice to meet you Simon.

# Patrick H. Lauke responded on 14th April 2005 with...

provisionally put me down for reaching heightened states of incompetence by the consumption of fermented vegetable juice…

# jon responded on 15th April 2005 with...

Ouch - that sounds bloody horrible. I hope Emma get’s well very soon and that she has her feet up and has Simon baking fresh cakes for her on the hour - every hour.

# asketa responded on 15th April 2005 with...

Get well soon ;)

# Tom Woolley responded on 18th April 2005 with...

Get well soon Emma!

Me and my colleague, Tim Burnett will both be attending @media and will most definately be up for a few post-conference beverages.

# steve responded on 22nd April 2005 with...

Get well soon Emma! Sorry to hear about your fall, take care,

lazymouse

# LintHuman responded on 29th April 2005 with...

I hope Emma is on the mend. Sounds awful.

I’ll be there for @media, hoping to rub shoulders with the great and good. Won’t be able to hobnob in the evenings, though - my accommodation manager, sorry, sister, has already organized other diversions…

# Jan Brasna responded on 4th May 2005 with...

Ouch, tell her that I wish her a quick recovery from it :(

Colly, I’ll be in London during the @media, but not sure about attending it yet. However I’m going to Semi-Permanent and I’d be glad if thiss Oxton’s piss up is not going to be some @media-ticket-holders-only ;) so I could see you all guys there.

# Dan Webb responded on 13th May 2005 with...

Yep, I’ll at @media too and in need of good british booze and chat.  I’ve been out of the country for ages and require some cider with urgency.

# Faruk Ateş responded on 6th June 2005 with...

I’ll be there—see you next thursday!

Also, all these people are going to be there, too! :)
