ebuild is sad to announce its closure - it has become too time and resource intensive to develop, manage and maintain.

However, ebuild will remain on-line in archive mode (ie no posting facilties) for several weeks so that users can use it as an information resource.

I'm off to the NEC tomorrow, to see Jeff Lynne's ELO. Now that really is a must!

Was there Friday, 2/3 of day looking at windows suppliers and 1/3 looking at doors ran out of time to look at anything else. Top tip: have a meal after the show while everyone else leaves in a panic causing traffic nightmare and it saves you paying £12 to park as the parking attendants had gone home by 6:30 when we left :-)

Good tip there We paid on the way in Had something to eat and walked to the car
only to find the attendants about to pack up for the day
As you also state far to much to see in one day
Well worth the two hour drive

It was a lot better this year - The snake oil and rug salesmen have mostly disappeared. As a result the show was a bit smaller and a bit more focused, the workshops and tutorials were vaguely useful as well. - I managed to get to talk to the companies I needed to and make an escape by 2:30pm.
