Hmm- There surely won't be a TI Drome at that location ever again... The party hall is gone and will soon be replaced with an appartment block. That's all I know, sorry, no real info... :/

Dipswitch: Check out http://www.drome.nl for more info about the TI Drome party. They're still organising it, they just did edition #12. There are also party reports of the older events and it seems there were some demoshows at TI Drome III but I couldn't find anything about compos or releases.

Other '97 never existed. It's just a byproduct of D-Lee's fantasies.

During 1996-97 there was a huge upswing in Hungarian parties, organizing became in fashion, just like diskmag-making earlier. Most beginner groups considered it an easy way of gaining fame. So did D-Lee of Exceed, as his group was quite nameless back in 1996. He announced a party in the city of Szombathely, but it was cancelled. He claimed that the city court has taken the place away "because of political reasons."

Despite the party never happened, ever since he is claiming the fame for it.

In December 1997, when a bunch of Hungarians were at The Party, the organizers screwed up something. D-Lee turned to Ward of Astroidea, and said: "Well, we did it much better at Other '97!" Ward replied: "But there wasn't any Other '97, right?" "Umm... well... nevermind" - he said.

In 1998, when I spent my military service in Szombathely, he showed me the building, and explained the cancelled plans excitedly, where the compo room would have been, where they planned to put the projector, and so on. Ever since he expects me to adore his masterful plans.

To top the entire thing, around 2000 he claimed that Other '97 was indeed held, but only I was not invited, for being considered a lamer. Allegedly there were only a few Exceed members, but it was a true "familiar" party, which lamers like me can't ever understand.

I don't know what is D-Lee's current spin, better ask himself.

there was a series of parties called 'the convention' in 96, 97 and 99 (can anyone confirm 98?) - those were held in kristiansund/norway.

and before anyone browses the database here and starts bitching about "noooo, the family robot was released at kindergarden 98"; I RE-released at kg, to get some nifty stuff..
did cache'97 take place?

the only evidence i have is this invitation text.

meaning "Guys: its NDA but it seems cache will be delayed to next year. I can only confirm this tomorrow." makes me think the party in fact never happened.

ah okay thx. so i suppose thats why there were two caches in 1998. so i guess it would also be appropriate to sort this textfile on scene.org under cache98a?
