    I also want to say thanks to everyone last night. Big thanks to @Dirk B for the knowledge shared and @wolf for the braai. And was great finally meeting you @Luis Embalo even if the chat was brief. And the rest I can't think of now. @Linxie, always cool catching up with you and G.

    Staring at my tank now with new plants floating around and think it's time to rescape this weekend.

    Thank you very much for everyone who arranged and attended the evening. It was a good experience.
    Sorry I had to leave early - exams are calling again.

    Already tied my moss and fissidens to some wood in my tank to get it growing so long before the rescape.
    Hoping to find some Christmas and weeping moss soon as well.

Its always a bit weird meeting total strangers but i must say you all know how to make one feel comfortable. So looking forward to the next meet! Tx

    Wow, what a night it was. I always, in the introduction posts say how friendly and helpful the members are. Well you guys are even more so in real life.
    All the knowledge shared last night was amazing. Not going to thank everyone, firstly because i am bad with names and secondly I will anyways have to thank everyone that came.

    Will process the video on monday, or get one of my techies to do it for me.

    @wolf, hoe het jy die perspeks geplak, silicon of choloform?

    It was indeed a very enjoyable evening and I thought we were a nice sized group this time round. From my side I would also like to thank everyone who was there and especially everyone who pitched in in some kind of way. It was nice to see both old and new faces. The pap lived up to its reputation, thanks Maryke. Enigste probleem is, nou is ek lus vir nog. The meat were perfect, thanks Herman. Prof Dirk thank you for the time you spend preparing your talk and the willingness to share your knowledge with us.

    Left him? :eek: Don't think everyone knew it was out and available yet :D So Herman, being the gentleman he is decided not to disturb the nice party and just quietly took the box ;). In his defense, he left it until everyone packed up and half the people left. At least I got my 2 cubes worth of perspex.

    On a side note: I am busy converting the video file to something that I can upload. the Original file is 2.3GB, so will convert it and then let you guys know where and how I will share it. IF all the people in the video allows me to share that is.

    Hi everyone
    Sorry it's taken so long to get these pics online. Firstly they're terribly noisy and dark (need to get flash sorted and camera serviced) and secondly, I've been planting and re-planting all weekend :D hehehe

    @Hanekka Will upload the video tommorow, just trying to reduce the noise a little. Not going to worry about the lighting. Can read the slides and hear what prof said.
