Yeah, it was getting hard trying to find the right set of times and
places but the one thing we knew was that we couldn't have it when
exams were on.
Finding a place at the right time, in the right location and with the
right facilities turned out to be difficult and the best way to keep
people in touch with the constant changes was with the forums.
We posted polls on the forums about which location in the UK they
would prefer, there was another thread about whether people could help
by suggesting locations and there was another to keep people posted
about the changes.
It was probably me who told you that it was being postponed until
after the exams and most of the announcements that i made tended to be
on the forums but as usual the vast majority of the decisions were
made live, via IRC.
