I make it about 27.3% bigger. Am I getting my numbers muddled?
arse - i'm getting 201/256 mixed up with 256/201 aren't I?
Either way - GET THE SQUARE ONE
I LOVE YOU ANORAK

I forgot to say, would it be possible to get up a small PA or something for the sets in the merch tent? I find it difficult to watch bands when there's so much talking (obviously you can't ask people buying/selling merch to be silent!!).

Phew, I've just finished editing my photos and sticking them on Facebook, which is literally all I've been doing since I got back from the festival (It's a nice way to extend the festival for a couple of days. I recommend it).
I had as lovely a time as ever.
Wow! That picture pretty much sums up seeing Joanna Gruesome on Saturday night. Great work.

The introduction of smoke machines was interesting. In the shed I couldn't tell the smoke machine from the dust. In the church I was a bit worried someone had done a Specific Heats and blown up their amp. It's all good fun though.

It would be useful to know the train times to and from Butterley station in advance. Maybe whoever made the posters that were stuck up at the station could also put them on the website/twitter/FB page?
It's worth keeping an eye on the Railway's website and Facebook page. They did post a full timetable, this year. I add this info to my clashfinder as best I can if they announce in time.

At certain points they seemed to be basically running on demand - when Mrs Comfortzone and the little Comfortzones had to pop back to the car at Butterley mid-afternoon Sunday, they somehow seemed to charter a return trip all to themselves.
