Julia Harris, Megamole, Suzi, Gid, Emma Tinsley, Anejo, Kheldar, Peter, 
Jonathan, Nick and Sarah, Charles Collicutt, Selina (with friends Emma, 
Brian, and Barry), Leo Barium, David Damerell + SO, Lottie, Maurice,

Tap, Carol, Dale, Vicci, Richard Kettlewell, Barry R, and Little A'Tuin.

Given the size of the meet, YHN couldn't be everywhere at once.

The meet for him consisted of; 

User-friendly Cartoons, 
Megamole and the AFPMadrigal Society performing at him.
and being used as a seat :)

oh, and there were some quotes too...

YHN arrived at about 17:45 to the hello's of many AFP'ers, who had 
commandeered a corner of the pub, and the gentle strains of the 
AFPMadrigal Society having a practice. . Greetings were made, and hugs 
were given and received, and many names had faces put to them. 

Soft cuddly toys appeared, among them two nessies, the Baby Seal of 
Approval (which received the usual chorus of aahhhhh!s), and a small sown 
turtle, which was promptly christened Little A'Tuin. After YHN persuaded 
Megamole that he couldn't sing Bass (thanks for the seconding Suzi), 
conversation returned to the musical discussion that was going on 

More attendees arrived, and more greetings were made, and conversation 
quickly fragmented. More attendees arrived, and things started to really 
get fun. Megamole, Peter, and Kheldar continued geeking music; Some User 
friendly comic strips were produced and declared funny by most people; 
and Peter found himself handcuffed with a silk scarf. More people arrived 
and conversations became very hard to follow. Gid and Leo began geeking 
Welsh, and frightening poor MiQ in the process. Carol produced a 
motorised hedgehog, which proceeded to "have fun" with a smaller fluffy 
animal. The meet began to spread out and occupy more of the pub. 

>From this point on, things became to hectic for YHN to follow. He began 
to talk to Nick, Jester, about the various lusers encountered in the 
computer industry, (Nick supplied a very funny story about a Luser that 
phoned the helpdesk to complain that the coffee machine had been removed 
from outside his office). He remembers that there was a lot of backrubs 
going on, (and Carol didn't receive one). He remembers the Kheldar was 
subjected to some advanced torture techniques by Vicci who refused to 
give him a hug for almost the entire evening, only hugging him right at 
the end of the night. He remembers saying goodbye, and getting more hugs.

Any event after that will have to be recounted by someone else, as I 
haven't managed to get the hang of remote psychic reporting.

Other than that, he opens the floor to memories other people have...
