YourSymbian Editor

This weekend I have spent a proportion of my time editing for YourSymbian.

YourSymbian is a fortnightly newsletter for the Symbian world.

The 16th edition is the first one I have edited and was helped though making it by Ewan Ewan who also produced some of the articles.

Not sure as of writing this whether it has hit the 9000+ e-mail boxes as when Rafe first tried would not send.

In it I have written some articles about the funnier side of the Mobile world, but to read you are going to have to subscribe to YourSymbian or visit the site in 2 weeks when it’s archived there.

AllAboutSymbian Journal

After seeing a post by another forum member at AllAboutSymbian, I went to the site BookCrossing to see what it was all about.

When I went to the Most travelled section, I was entigued by the EuroBookCrosser’s Diary #1 and thought I would have to get involved, and knew the easiest way was to start my own.

I chatted to the forum member who posted the original mesage and decided to set up one for AllAboutSymbian.

Well after buying the book and adding my stuff to it, is now winging it’s way (by airmail) to Finland. Once that member has added her bits, will be off to Macedonia.

As we may be having another AllAboutSymbian Pub Meet in November, it will then be sent back to me so I can take along to get some more people to fill in and then off will be taken home for another member to continue it’s journey!

Second AAS/Mobitopia Pub Meet

On Tuesday (12 August 2003) this week, I attended the second AAS/Mobitopia pub meet. I arrived at about 6:15(ish) and I believe I was the first there (I left just after time at the bar aournd 11:10). This was due partly to the fact I headed to The Dover Castle straight from work.

Eventully there was about 18 people from AAS & Mobitopia and what a night it was.

The guest speaker of the night was the owner of AllAboutSymbian, Rafe.

Prizes were on offer in the Raffle which there was so many prizes everyone won and got something. I got a Black Symbian T-Shirt.

Also there was discussion of Symbian devices including the soon to be released N-Gage.
I will hopefully be posting some photos to the AAS forum gallery. Keep an eye out for them

Opera and Vexed

Well today I have installed Opera on my Nokia 7650 after a few error messages, saying memory low, or not enough memory. But thanks to All About Symbian forums, I managed to install.

Have e-mailed someone at All About Symbian in regards to the Free Registration, which may arrive as early as tomorrow!

Yesterday I installed Vexed from Freepoc on my Nokia 7650. Have got to Level 30, and am stuck, but apparently everyone gets stuck there! 🙁

All About Symbian Pub Meet

Well on Monday Night, (this is first chance I have had to write about it) I went to the AAS Pub Meet. The pub was near Regent’s Park London Underground Station, and around the corner from the Chinese and Polish embassies.

The Pub itself was tucked away down an alley that you could walk past everyday, and realise there is a pub down there. I only knew as I had the help of Streetmap.co.uk.

When I arrived in the Pub and after getting a drink, I enquired as to where the meeting was taking place, and when I walked in, I think because of my AAS avatar showing some of my face a few shouted “Gadget”. I was introduced to everyone in room, including Rafe, Jordan and Ewan from AAS.

Around about 8pm, there was about 50 people in attendance, and Oz from Siemens gave a presentation about the Siemens SX1 (series 60) mobile phone. (See Photos in my FotoBlog taken throughout the night).

Then there was a raffle with various prizes including a Siemens Mystery Prize bag (was sugar sachets from CeBit conference in Hannover, Germany). I also won a prize. I decided to choose Opera browser for my Nokia 7650. Some of the other prizes (most had gone my time I had won) included Symbian Books, A Jacket, T-Shirts, Mints, and various software including, RMR software, a Golf Game, as well as Opera.

Rest of the night was spent taken the photos mentioned above and mingling with everyone there!

Was there till after Last Orders, then made back to station before the last trains ran, although nearly got lost at Elephant and Castle, as went wrong way.

But All In All A Great Evening!
