Quanta AGM 2005
Quanta's Annual General Meeting for 2005 was held on 17/04/05 in Portslade town hall, near Brighton and Hove on the south coast of England. Yours truly took a digital camera with him and these are some of the photos I took at that event.

||Bernd Reinhardt, seen from
the front this time! Bernd is a software author, many of his works are
available from JMS.
|Bruce Nicholls of Quo Vadis Design.
Bruce operates the QL Users Email Mailing List, does website design for
Quanta and others, plus proof reads QL Today. One of those quiet but
hardworking people behind the scenes whom you never really hear much
about but whose contribution to the QL scene is highly important. Oh, I
nearly forgot, Bruce is also a past QL software trader and former editor
of a software reviews magazine called QReview.
||David Gilham, who maintains the Turbo
Toolkit and has done some work updating Perfection to work better with
modern QL displays (as yet unreleased work).
||The Jochen Merz Software stand at the
AGM. As busy as ever - trying to get near Jochen (who is seated, wearing
the bright yellow jumper) at these shows is always a problem as he's
always so busy! Sat facing Jochen is Quanta chairman, John Mason.
|Another busy stand at the
show was that of QBranch. Roy Wood of QBranch is on the right of the
picture. Facing the camera with the cheeky grin is Phil Jordan of The
Library PD software library service.

|Peter Fox, who has been
known to fly to these QL shows in his private plane on occasions, but
not this time!
||John Hall, hard at work on
|Quanta software editor,
||Former Quanta officer, Bill
Newell. Some trivia: Bill was one of the tellers counting votes cast at
||Ken Bain, organiser of the
Quanta workshops at Byfleet.
|A quiet moment pondering
some problem in the corner of the hall!
