Tonyblack is moderator of this forum, and after reading the moderator's job spec, it appears that he is duty-bound to go to DWC10 in Birmingham.
The reason he says he isn't going is that he's saving all his money for visiting SW Reader in the US. A truly noble cause if ever there was one.
However, if the financial costs of going to the Convention are lowered, I'm sure Tony will change his mind.
Firstly, accommodation. If you stay at the Hilton it costs 60 pounds a night. Three nights = 180 pounds.
I have already booked my room. Tony, if you bring a sleeping bag, you are more than welcome to crash on the floor in my room. I must admit I snore like a pig, but if you can cope with that, no problem.
Secondly, transport to and from Birmingham. I'm sure that someone from the South West is driving up to Birmingham and could drop in on Cardiff on the way, pick Tony up and take him home afterwards.
If anyone else has any bright ideas about how to save Tony money, please post them.
