A CISU Blues Festival at the SCC Social Club, and a Million Laptops, Ipswich and Cambridge - 27th November 2004

At work in Cambridge, Qualcomm refits the former Trigenix's IT infrastructure, including its laptops. That means around 40 laptops in a room all installing at the same time. Then, following a night at the Ipswich Blues minifest at the County Council's social club (tagged as CISU even though that name has long since disappeared), it's time to hang out around Andrew and Heidi's, a mill around Ipswich for a bit. 2020 "re-master" note: There are a few repeat-ish photos of the social club scene, but of all the ones in the collection, these are quite rare in the way they show off the 1960s/70s glory of the place, which is now sadly derelict

next album: A Trip to East Lane, Bawdsey, Suffolk - 28th November 2004
previous album: The Hoxne Swan Beer Festival, Hoxne, Suffolk - 20th November 2004
