The Memotech MTX Series

 

  2013  Memofest 2014  2015  2016  2017 

 

Following the very successful Memofest event held in 2013, Memofest 2014 was held on the 20th September, hosted by Andy Key in Chandlers Ford, Southampton. As last year, I had hoped to be a "virtual" attendee using Skype, unfortunately, "technical difficulties" at the remote end meant that my participation was cut short, so my reporting of the event is very limited.

Andy has updated his Memofest 2014 page, where you can find a summary of the day's activities, but a small selection of photos from the day are available below :

Andy kindly opened his home to the band of slightly suspect characters attending Memofest 2014.

No expense spent - the extensive event signage, directing attendees to the venue. Perhaps next year, we can get a working Videowall to point the way to Memofest 2015!

The star of the show was probably the Memotech themed cake, unfortunately, Skype's lack of "taste-o-vision" means that I am unable to attest to it's quality :-(

Competition

As a bit of fun, but really, to hopefully to stimulate a bout of frantic programming in advance of Memofest 2014, Martin and I have decided that we will donate a MAGROM board - see :

 http://primrosebank.net/computers/mtx/projects/magrom/magrom.htm

to the winner of a Memotech programming competition.

The competition rules (a little tongue in cheek, but the competition is real) can be found over on Memorum
