also say: if you write code, and whatever you were planning to do this
weekend does not involve meeting royalty or heads of state, then drop
whatever you're doing and organise to go to Codefest this weekend:



It'll be at Peter's house, and might be a little crowded, but it's
absolutely the coolest thing to do.  You may never get another opportunity
like it.  Sitting around with a bunch of expert programmers, learning and
asking questions and passing on knowledge, as well as trivial mundanities
like eating, drinking and sleeping.  It's brilliant.  I'd be going but I'm
already booked to go to Auckland for OSDC... and even then I've contemplated
flying out on Sunday afternoon.

Have fun,
