Well this is it, the last time before mashed when I’ll be able to sit at a desk and type properly – not balancing my eee PC on my knee hoping the wi-fi is still up.

It’s quite scary – 600 people have signed up now – there’s some more tickets available, but I just feel I’ve forgotten something.

The PR has started in earnest – I was on the Guardian Tech weekly podcast, and Pods and Blogs this week – it’s quite fun hearing myself on radio again – reminds me how much I miss it.

Right, bean bags need to be organised, and I need to deal with the hundreds of entries for Monster Mashed (read as ZERO entries to Monster Mashed).
