Staff Wargaming team and the Central Command are in the area labeled as "Command Post" in the exhibit hall book.

Look for the giant blue canopy with the camp net behind it along the gold drapery

All of our events are in that area.

Remind me again why I'm working (a job I've come to hate intensely, btw) these next several days instead of being there?

where's Smuck in his Leah slave bikini?
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

Parking today was f'ed up...

Note the sign for $5 parking, and then the second sign directing you to turn for $5 parking.

Then note in the upper right what I was actually charged for parking.

Apparently the signs are additive...

Getting gipped on parking fees or not, I still wish I'd been there.  Definitely looked like it was fun.

3-7 June 2015

Seriously!?  Again that is right at the end of school next year and there will be no way I can come.   >:(  They really need to push it later into June, you know just to accommodate me. :tickedoff:

Given the number of people with some sort of school affiliation that they might be wanting as speakers and the like, those dates don't seem ideal.  Of course, it might be nothing in the following weeks was available at the Convention Center, either.

I suppose we could all just go hang out at Brant's house the following week.
