Forgotten Futures Adventures at Dragonmeet

I've left it very late, but I'm hoping to run the following adventures at Dragonmeet at the end of the month:

With A Grain of Salt
The Venusian colonies depend on regular supplies of salt to refuel the atomic blasts that provide them with power, but their only source is the great Brightside salt flats, several hundred miles sunward beyond the deadly Hotland swamps. When all contact is lost with the mobile factory that collects it, and two shipments in a row fail to reach the British colony of Venoble, it’s time for the League of Nations Patrol to investigate.
3-6 Players, 2-3 hours

Warlord of Mars
For decades China has been in a state of near-anarchy, ruled and plundered by rival warlords who grind the peasants into poverty. Now General Fong, one of the most merciless of these rulers, has somehow reached Mars with a group of his most fanatical supporters, seized one of the remaining Martian cities, and proclaimed himself Emperor. How will the gentle Martians react to his oppression? Why would he want Mars anyway? And what can the adventurers do to stop him?

Assuming that all goes well and they can still let me have a table, look out for me there!

Later: Looks like I've got a table. And hopefully a load more plastic astronauts heading my way...

Cheap network hard disks,

Don't know if it's of interest, but SVP will be selling these network hard disk enclosures at £19.49 on Monday. Very tempted to give one a try, since the one I use intermittently hangs, but I have a LOT of stuff on it and don't know if it will be possible to transfer the hard disk without wiping it.

Looking at the description, does it seem likely that it will work with a Mac without problems?
