Congratulations! So when's the first EF Event?

"Free Beer" seems to be popular.

Congrats, Anthony, that's great news!



Plus, it is pretty close to us, it would be cool to throw a BBQ party when it gets warmer, everybody brings something, weehee...

Re: Just did an offer

Well done... I admire people who have the courage to say "stuff the system, I'm packing it all in and going off to do what I always wanted to do".

I just wish I had an idea, and the nerve to put it into practice !

Congratulations Anthony! I've been there and I know how exciting it is to have a "baby" to look after. Tell me when it's open and I'll shoot down for a lunch/beer or whatever's cooking.
