You know the drill: I bring my tablet PC so I can work from there connected to Telecom NZ Hotspot (which is free for mobile broadband users until end of August 2006) or Cafenet (which is not giving a good signal lately). While I drink coffee or munch through some lunch a string of IT people will come and go, for a good chat and geek stuff all around.
But back to this week's meeting. We had to join two tables, to accomodate all the gadgets around and it actually looked like a Microsoft MVP meeting.
We had myself with my Toshiba M205 tablet PC and Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition (Mobile Devices MVP), Craig Pringle with his Motion LS800 tablet PC (MVP Tablet PC), Chris Auld with his Windows Moble Smartphone (MVP Mobile Devices), Nick Randolph with his Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition (Embedded MVP), and Darryl Burling with his spanking new eo UMPC (Microsoft New Zealand)!
We had a good talk about Darryl's new UMPC, compared sizes with the Motion LS800, talked about the next Windows Mobile User Group activities, the creation of an Auckland Windows Mobile User Group, apparently managed to convince Nick to install Vista on his laptop, and overall had some good time.
We also found out that my Victorinox man bag is the ideal size for the eo UMPC, and Darryl dashed to Kirk's afterwards to look for a Victorinox addition to his list of geek stuff.
I really enjoy these meetings, a lot of disconnected talk, people throwing different ideas, all good stuff. And we have to be quite loud sometimes because it's a busy cafe.
This week we missed Peter Torr Smith (I still owe him a cigar!).
