So, What is a Meet?
Have you ever wanted to find out who is really behind
that name that you see when you sit in front of a computer screen,
frantically tapping away at the keyboard, chatting gaily away with
everyone and anyone? Have you wanted the chance to meet the people who
you've been hassling every day for the past 2 months to add in new code?
Or how about that strange person who you've been absolutely
dying to find out whether they're really male or female
irl..? Whatever your motives, all this and much more (mostly along the
lines of alcohol consumption, admittedly) is what you can find at a meet..
Spods from all over the world conglomerate in one town, city, or
commonly, university, at which point all hell very often breaks loose..
OK, so usually most spods are from the same country, and usually they're
fairly well behaved..
Some people worry beforehand about not knowing anyone at the meet, but
no-one knows more than one or two other spods at their first meet, which
is the whole point (well, a substantial part of) going to a meet in the
first place.. Why else would they be called "Meets"?! Anyway, if you're
worried that you won't be able to find any other spods (not
nearly as hard as many people seem to think) try reading
tried and tested formula! And besides.. just how hard can a group of
several spods be to spot? Just look out for the black-clad group with
alcohol already in hand and more in belly...
Please don't feel put off by the fact that so far the admin have
organised most of the meets so far. If you would like to have a
meet in your area, feel free to go ahead and arrange one! If you let us
know the details, we can advertise it for you, and put up all the
information about it to help you out. Keep us informed, and don't forget
to invite us! *grin*
Unfortunately, we had "a minor accident" a rather long time ago now, involving
the reformatting of a hard disk, without removing the backups to a safe place
first *sigh* Well, we didn't lose much, but what we did lose was the
vast majority of the pictures on the FTP site, so you may find some of the
earlier meets a little short on pictures. If you have any pictures from
spodmeets, past or present, please send them to
inclusion on the FTP site.
