Just looking at flights now. Should have everything booked, paid for and organised by the end of today.

 

We're 99% installed... barring bad luck, I. Am. In :-)

 

edit: sorry for missing the chatter, I haven't had much Internet access to speak of for about a month :-/

OK, flights booked.

Hotel booked (OUCH! But staying less than 5 minutes from the Opera House)

 

Considering I'm confirmed for travel and accom, Can I pay on the day for the Atomic doodad Chaos??

That should be fine.  PM me your email address.

Yeah, we thought ouch too. Was even tempted not to book any accom at all and just do that back-to-the-airport, up-all-night thing. Then we remembered we're not 22 anymore, so no :-D

We're AirBnB'ing some random's spare bedroom for a few hours, just a couple of blocks away from the venue. We just need somewhere to sleep for a few hours and store our stuff :-D 

 

And oh yeah, we're fully installed, completely confirmed, all that jazz. All up, I think we'll be in Sydney for barely 24 hours. My fastest trip anywhere :-)

If I had of booked sooner, I'd have had it cheaper.

In future, I can highly, beyond anything, recommend the 'City Lodge'.

It sounds like a backpackers, and when I first stayed there, I fully expected it to be.

 

Turns out, it's an exceptionally tiny-roomed hotel.

You don't even share a Bathroom, every room has their own.

Windows are all sound proofed, and you even get normal maid service for the room.

 

It's on Hunter Street, like 2~3 blocks away from the Bridge\OperaHouse\Rocks.

 

$120 a night normally.

However cheap rooms all booked out for this event.

 

Also, last time I was in Sydney, I ate at "The Oldest Pub in the Rocks" where they did a WICKED kangaroo burger. 10/10 will be visiting again.

So.

Turns out the walk from the airport to circular quay is.... Longer than it looks.

I made it! And im still happy i did it, fuck their $20 airport train 'gate fee' plus ticket fee.

Ill be getting the train back to Mascot and walking from there on my way back.

Bourke st is like lgbti central, so many rainbow flags and pride signs.

Hyde park i think it was, is nice.

Its kinda neat in a retro way to see so many 'telecom' not telstra symbols.

All up, between sight seeing and my walk from the airport with a few detours im pretty sure i just clicked over 20kms.

Ow. My legs :p

But its been fun.
Lonely.
But fun.

I saw a literal 'microsoft' store today, but it was closed, so im going to check that out tomorrow.

Is lunar park or whatever its called worth a visit on your own?

Been a big day :)


Edit;
oh, i do not have a way to print my invite. So you'll just have to trust its me :p

No one punched me for being annoying online.

And everyone called me crazy or insane for walking so far.

My night is going amazing :)

Yeah +1 to that.

 

I dont know if i've ever had so much fun in such a short time.

Normally i'd be out of a meetup in 5 minutes thanks to excessive drinking making everyone horrid.

 

Not the At0micans though. We just got louder and happier and intelligent conversations continued :)

 

So good.

 

Totally coming back down for the next one :)

 

A+ for a great run night, and for no one being a douche.... And for awesome cake.

 

Ty to all, and anyone who got an oldschool mpc sticker, dibs if you wanna sell it :)

Thanks everyone for attending. It was great to see some people I haven't seen in ages, and interest I haven't seen before!

You make no sense. Calm down. You're hysterical.
Beer will fix it.

I was expecting to have a good night. That far exceeded my expectations. Thank you everybody for being a cool person to hang out with.
Very well done Chaos.
