Sexy SirsiDynix shenanigans in sunny Southampton

(Well, it’ll be sexy in-so-far as I’m including some gratuitous nudity in my session on “RSS and Social Networking” on Thursday. Will I be stripping off and revealing all in the name of “2.0”? You’ll have to come along and find out!)

I’m currently sat in Manchester Airport, waiting for a budget flight down to Southampton, which is playing host to this year’s “Dynix Users Group/European Unicorn Users Group Joint Conference“. High on the agenda is the merging of the two user groups, and hopefully a shorter name — my personal choice is still “SirsiDynix Libraries User Group”, if only for the cool “SLUG” acronym.

As Ian has already mentioned on his blog, European Horizon users are crossing their fingers that SirsiDynix CEO Gary Rautenstrauch’s “commitment to our worldwide customer base” will result in an announcement that Horizon 7.4.2 will be made available to non-US customers. Sadly, the 7.4.1 release was a US only affair and UK sites are still tootling along (quite merrily, it has to be said) on 7.3.4.

Right — must dash, my boarding gate has just been announced! 3G card allowing, I’m hoping to blog and Flickr the conference.

  1. Welcome to Southampton! It was sunny yesterday, honest, but I’m not sure today is warm enough for gratuitous nudity πŸ™‚

    “Get your HIP out for the lads…”

    I was there..there was nudity.

    The mental scars may never heal.

  3. Thanks Sarah — the weather just about held for the conference, and the sun went down in style on the river cruise:

    I think I’ll make “presentations with nudity” my unique selling point πŸ˜€
