I aim to arrive at the LAN at about 12pm, but I&#39;ll drive down to Stansted and pick you up if nobody else volunteers.

Any volunteers to get him back on Sunday afternoon?

I can take him back no problems. I can even be a co-pilot for you TL (I don&#39;t know the layout of stanstead so if I&#39;m the return driver, it&#39;d be really useful)

I&#39;m driving past Stanstead, but it will be about 12pm. I&#39;m also fully loaded both there and back with Dingo and Chimpy.

Stanstead is very straight forward, you either need the North or a South Terminal. They are sign posted, so depending on which Duval is coming in and or leaving by, then just either use the associated short stay car park or sit in the pick up point for the appropriate terminal and hope you don&#39;t get moved on by the police <_<

I&#39;ll be there to pick you up Duvel. :)

I have some transport problems of my own at the moment (smashed my car up badly last Thursday) but I will have a hire car for the weekend.

I&#39;ll PM you some details later including my new mobile number and where to meet me at Stansted.

Another question: I&#39;m bringing my HD of 160 GB aswell. How do I have to take this with me through customs and so? Do I take it in my handlugage and take it out at the scan or is it not a problem? Any idea?

Take it in your hand luggage or in your pocket. Do not place it in the cargo so to say. It will be destroyed or stolen.

It is not a problem in customs. I had a extra HDD with me last LAN and it was no problem.

IMPORTANT

if u r bringing it in hand luggage it will go through those scanners for metal be careful as they will want to open it up incase it is a bomb sad gits they r. if they say it is ok then they won&#39;t but to make sure ur data isn&#39;t wiped wrap it in silver foil so the beams reflect back plus make sure they take care of it and don&#39;t let them put it thru tht scanner machine it may wipe itsself

Just what he wanted to hear. :( I don&#39;t think that&#39;s true though. My digital camera has been through loads of times and I haven&#39;t lost anything yet. Same principal isn&#39;t it?

edit for spelling

My comp and HDD went through scanners two times last lan and there was no problem. I really don&#39;t see how it could affect it tbh. It is x-rays with pretty low energy we are talking about and it would need a lot to knock out atoms. If it was high energy I think you should worry more about putting fabric through as it could light a fire. :)

I will ask the person at the machine to sort it out. More info at the LAN.

Probably, but if he told you he&#39;d have to kill you&#33;

He is that evil he doesn&#39;t even have the big red button that aborts his evil scheme&#33;&#33;

A volcano, in Sweden, who would think of looking there?
He is indeed an evil genius, and as everyone knows, evil genius&#39;s have floundering sidekicks, maybe he&#39;ll turn up to the LAN with his.
