Martin skipped Euromold this year, leaving me to brave the journey across Europe. The train from London to Brussels was an hour late, causing me to miss my connection.

He did help me buy the tickets, which were in the form of four grubby sheets of self-printed A4 paper, all purchased separately. Normally this is a disaster because, unless you book the journey all in one chunk, your late arrival from the previous train is not their problem. However, this was Euroland, and all it needed was for the person at the help-desk to rubber stamp the paper with “Hop on next train” for all the unnecessary problems of being on the right train at the wrong time to be neutralized.

At the end of 2007 I took a trip to the Chaos Computer Congress 24c3.

There were a lot of strange people there, and some white haired dude tried to get me interested in his new WikiLeaks thing. I got his card.
