We had an interesting two days running a Guild stand at this show (the "we" being Bob and myself). We didn't enrol any new people but we did encourage a few folks to get their machines out from under the bed and gave advice to a few people.

He kept using the hallway as a toilet. I think he might have been abused. We are going to wait a bit longer before we try again, I think. The Cog was quite upset when he got back from returning him last night.
