But really great night, good to see some of you in person too!

And Joe, you definitely need to do more boardgame reviews!

Oh, and three cheers to Paul for organising everything!

Was really good fun, tho some *very* hard q's requiring some very specific knowledge!
Next time, some more general geekery rounds would be good Maybe a science/maths round and a gaming trivia round...

Cheers for the feedback, obviously it was our first one, so we were a little unsure where to pitch it. We'll take your comments on board for the next one.

That looks great, I'm sorry I missed it (although not sure how much use I would have been). Just hope it doesn't fall on one of my son's birthdays next time.

I have to say, I really rather liked the retro-geekery round.

Absolutely impossible, but its good having a round like that, where the odd obscure thing you remember from 10 years back gifts you a mark.

Yep, we'll be posting the full list of questions (or at least linking to them) in the main article we'll write up about it. We kept all the answer sheets too, so hoping to do a break down of what were the hardest questions. All just depends on time though.

To keep you going, i'll pop a few questions here too:

In The News Round

3. Last month, Seagate announced a partnership with Israeli company DensBits to develop and produce a line of which products?

8. Sony stoked rumours that the Playstation 4 will incorporate cloud gaming features by buying which company at the beginning of July?

TV & Film

2. In which movie did Hugh Jackman play a computer hacker, one who was able to work in spite of assorted distractions?

7. Five Harvard students have ten minutes to get root access to a Python web server, expose itís SSL encryption, and then intercept all traffic over its secure ports. Which film are you watching?

General Tech Knowledge

1. Apple's latest iPad model features what Apple calls a Retina display, with a pixel density of 264ppi. What is the resolution of this screen?

5. Most motherboards use a specific function to reduce the electromagnetic interference generated by their onboard clock generators, which we recommend you turn off when overclocking. Name the function.

Tech Acronyms

4. What does HTTP stand for?

5. What does TCP stand for?

Retro Tech

2. In the 1970s, Xerox PARC developed the first operating system with a graphical user interface (GUI) as we now know it. What was it called?

8. How much storage space would you get on a double-sided, double-density 3.5in floppy disk?

Geoff, I bet you forgot to take all those Orac posters to the quiz didn't you? Would have been a great way to "lose" at least some of them.

... the third placed 192.168.X.X team, who won a K60 mouse each.
So did we miss out on some Keyboard/Mouse hybrid that Corsair have yet to release? .

And again, as everyone has already said (but can never be enough), thanks to Paul for organising it, we had a great time although my friends knew the answers to barely any of the questions .

As was suggested, maybe at least an easier/more general round for people to feel good in or a mix of questions (so like 4 easy, 3 medium, 2 hard and 1 "how did you know the answer was Jurassic Park" question)... although i guess they were already planned out like that and my friends just weren't' tech/geeky enough ;>

But again, Thanks You !

What makes you think that?

I made a special trip to Dennis on Monday night to drop them off, and they were given away to various teams for categories like "Best Team Name" etc

36 posters in total, so VERY "Limited Edition" as they were billed
