We're having an intergalactic hacker party and maybe a hackathon where we shall attempt to hack the planet. We need to focus up and make things to keep the consulate fresh and get in some solid partying practice.
We need to keep this looking official to our Government to secure the required permissions to have guests. Please refer to the event as the “Third Symposium on Consular Curtain Trade Regulations” to ensure that the SNP do not learn the reality of what we're doing.

Aberdeen Airport (ABZ) is well connected both domestically and to hubs in Europe. There are several flights a day between Aberdeen and London Heathrow (LHR), Paris CDG and AMS.
Taxis from Aberdeen airport into the city cost around £20 and take about 30 minutes. There is an airport shuttle bus that operates from early in the morning to late at night which is much cheaper. The airport bus takes you directly to the city center.
Aberdeen is connected by rail to the rest of the UK, but the rail network is expensive to use and journeys can take a long time. There is a sleeper train connecting London Kings Cross to Aberdeen.
