What: Eve meet up in Galway, Fleet, pizza, taxi and club (for those who want it) and then DrunkFleet! Hopefully have some PS3's on the side for some DUST514
Where: 091 Labs Hackerspace in Galway will have moved into its new larger venue by October, so with bigger space, more power and hopefully good bandwidth (you know... the size of the hole in which the internet comes through to allow your internet machine to internet?)
I will be approaching CCP, HP, DELL, SONY and a bunch of others for support, sponsorship and prizes

US astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the Moon, has died at the age of 82.
His family says he died from complications from heart surgery he had earlier this month.
He walked on the Moon on 20 July 1969, famously describing the event as "one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind".
Last November Armstrong received the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest US civilian award.
He was the commander of the Apollo 11 spacecraft. He and fellow astronaut Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin spent nearly three hours walking on the moon.
Armstrong, who was raised in Ohio, took his first flight aged six with his father and formed a lifelong passion for flying.
He flew Navy fighter jets during the Korean War in the 1950s, and joined the US space programme in 1962.
Correspondents say Armstrong remained modest and never allowed himself to be caught up in the glamour of space exploration.
"I am, and ever will be, a white-socks, pocket-protector, nerdy engineer," he said in February 2000, in a rare public appearance.
In a statement, his family praised him as a "reluctant American hero"who had "served his nation proudly, as a navy fighter pilot, test pilot, and astronaut".
Regarding my last post on trolling the the preaching fanatics, it turns out that under the public order act, I DO have to give my name if a garda suspects me of an offence.... I think that's the 'get out of jail free card', I just need to not be suspicious?
I'll have to look into this more for next time I go fucking about with Satan signs. I didn't realise we lived in a bit of a police state :-/
