In case anyone here is awesome and owns a boat, Polly and I thought that a floating meetup would be awesome... So if anyone either has a boat, or is really rich and wants to buy one, you should let a bunch of strangers party on it.

VSlayer, do you have a car? Damn it.... I am supposed to go to the stupid flower show with my girl friend this weekend. I can see if I can get out of it... If I can, I am SO up for a quick little weekend trip.

My parents are away this weekend. You're welcome to stay at my house, if you like. 'joe, flowers suck. Come to nelson and we'll go to the beach. Unless it's rainy or windy, then we'll just get high and watch Princess Mononoke.

Unfortunately, I do not have a boat.

When I was growing up here, my step-dad refused to let me near a car, didnt even want me to get learners. So I was never taught how to drive.

Drive arrived at my house today, starting the copying now, unfortunately due to USB 1 it could take awhile. As far as the meet up goes im busy for the next couple of weekends but i have a car and a full licence, my car however is on the verge of self combustion so i dont know if i would risk pushing it the length of the country to pick everyone up, anyways keep coming up with ideas and ill see if i can be in when we come to some form of conclusion.

Do you guys like taking drugs and dancing for 15 hours straight? If so, you should come to the stardust festival on the Takaka hill near Nelson over Easter. You could stay at mine, i could drive you there and bring you back. All you'd need to do is get up here.

just an idea, how about instead of splitting the drive 6 ways, we split it five ways and replace the files of the person we are sending it to, ie, i delete gojoes files, gojoe deletes jacks files, jack deletes dagnarus files.

its kind of pointless sending someones files back to them, so doing this would up it to 200gb/person.

hmm, if no-one signs up by next weekend then ill take it, my harddrives are pretty full though so i need to buy another terabyte before i can do much with it

also, a thousand curses on windows, it wont let me burn ISO files using an external harddrive as a bridge for my cd burner so i have to waste a whole day installing windows on my new computer before i can burn off a mandriva cd and jack it up as a server

I might able to make my way to wellington on the 12th? I'll have to take some time off work but it'll save me some money on a bus ticket for my girl anyway. Would you Christchurchers be able to make it to wellington? Depends if i can get anytime off anyway. If we can come up with a plan ill fill out the forms.

Fucking heaps. I can't get the calculator to work, but it's on http://www.interislander.co.nz.

Edit: Ouch, if I'm reading this right it'd be almost $500 for a vehicle and two people to go return ($240 each way). Uh, yeah. Fuck that ferry.

If it's a clear day one half of us could go to the south coast here and the other to the top of the South Island and we could communicate via flag signals. That kind of counts as a meet-up, right?

I have a better plan! we all decide on a time, and then using some kind of world wide network. we meet up and communicate using a complex use of 1's and 0's.

address sent to dagnaru

i have the 11rd through 13st off, if i can find someone to cover the friday for me then i should be able to get the week preceding off too. $240 is a bit out of my budget at the moment, but we can still go and kill/rape/cannibalise polly.

Ed1t: harddrive does not seem to want to work through the external hdd bridge, ill have a play with it, but its looking like you guys may need to open up your cases(if they arent already) to get it going.
