Numeric Formatting in Suprtool

HP 3000 World Wide Wake

Alan Yeo has set up a web site to informally help organise a good old fashioned "World Wide Wake" for the evening of the 31st October to officially see the HP 3000 out. Click the link above to find the wake nearest you and contact the organizer, or register a suggested location in your town.

The idea is that someone picks a pub/bar in a particular town, and anyone within striking distance can make their way there. This is not an official event, but a way to informally get together for a drink, a meal, or what ever, in a host of local locations around the world.

Nothing entered on the page, will be recorded off-line or used for any type of marketing, and the information will be deleted after 31st October.
