Okay, you win by a landslide. I don't even know how that's possible! Usually rooms aren't available this early.

No big secret really. If you have the Hilton Honors card (free of course) they let you book out a year ahead of schedule. So I just went to the Conrad website and reserved a room for next year (out of block of course, which means the price is quite spendy). I'll keep this room if I don't get one in-block during the chaos.

Mark's post actually read as:

"Theus damnit....I'm too sober for this!"

I read it as, "I'm old and cranky and carrying a bunch of books/paperwork/computers/handouts/dice from 5 miles out lacks a certain appeal (especially when I am sleep deprived). So I don't mind spending twice what everyone else pays in order not to schlep it that far."

Plus I was sharing the secret so you can cheat too.

The actual translation is " I'm kind of a big deal, people know me"

Plus we are way leveled up in "convention gamer".

Tomorrow is the opening of Hotel Registration, and for the first time in years, I actually have to get involved since my time is under 2 hours in (so it's possible I could get an attached hotel and not pay the big prices). Good luck to everyone else.

Event Registration is coming up quickly. May 19th to be exact. Get your refresh buttons all warmed up (just kidding don't do that for GenCon, it will cause you to lose your place in line). I actually found an event I might just play that's actually available when I have some free time (that is, assuming I can get a ticket).

Oh I should also have made mention. Even though Event Reg is nearing, GenCon has not seen fit to give us locaions. So I'll just assume we're still out at the JW like usual.

So excited for another year and another Gencon. I'm just soooooo sad that I can't make it to Origins, but don't cry, it's only because I have too many other vacations this Summer.

Still, can't wait to see my favorite GC group again!

Aww, sorry to hear this Trenton. But glad I will see you in just a few months.

Major SNAFU with GenCon Wish List processing!

I input to process my wish list at 1 second after 11AM CST; waited 2 hours and 52 minutes watching the circle move clockwise; got disgusted and clicked on something; the screen said my Wish List was now processed and go to my cart; however, my cart was empty!

Toggling for a few minutes did nothing. My Wish List was Gone.

So, I went back to event selection, input all of my Wish List requests directly to my Cart, and had to switch just two Shadowrun events to get everything that was in my Wish List.

What a joke.

I had to refresh a couple of times Mike. For some reason it'd get clunky and just stop notifying me that it was still counting down. I got 100% of my events though (just one game so it was all or nothing). Gonna finally introduce myself to sidheshadow

Oh I should also say, I JUST saw the big screwup. Saturday instead of 9am being Eps. 15 and 17 followed at 2 by Eps. 16 and 18, for some reason (probably me) its now 15 and 16 at 9am followed by 17 and 18 at 2pm.

Just so you know, we'll still have Megan with us so we can accommodate all of you who want to play everything on Saturday. (So it'll probably be 15, 16, 17 at 9am and then 17 and 18 at 2pm) at this point there are few enough tickets we can just run whatever we want and we'll be fine.

Didn't get everything, but the only thing I didn't get with the guild was the flashback (odd) and I know you guys take walk ins with generics.

Heck, Mark brings a spare GM just in case. =) We can likely sneak you in.
