I see Union E for all our games Charlie. Union is the next hallway down (toward the convention center) we're all the way in the back of course. So does that mean an upgrade or a downgrade, I wonder?

It depends on if they use the dividers.

Split up, Union rooms are really no worse save the extra steps to the restroom.

If they leave the room open, that is kind of large and chaotic. And loud.

For those of you playing Megaparanoia, there was a small snafu in the scheduling that we just noticed and cannot fix this close to the event.

Mark scheduled it for Saturday at Midnight. (Which sounds right...but...)

In the system, Saturday Midnight MEANS Friday night/Saturday morning.

So Paranoia will take place in the Garfield room of the Hyatt on Friday night at midnight. NOT on Saturday Night.

This means you folks that keep claiming youmeed sleep Saturday before the drive home can come play.

Be glad you are cleared for this notice.

You are. What you are not cleared for is downtime Saturday from 9-1 while I recover. But it may clear you for Saturday evening if this high programmer is generous

Deal, amigo.

Let's see... It is Saturday morning and I leave Wednesday morning. I have spent the last 2 days getting g the car fixed and returning it to be fixed again and that damn light kicked on again on the way home so it needs to go back up today... Still better than Ken's method of having it breakdown in Columbus.

And I have 40 hours or more to put in at work before I leave.

And I need to prep gear, laundry, birthday gift shop for my brother before Tuesday, pick up father's day gifts since I will be with you guys that day...

Yep, everything is on its normal schedule for Origins.

See you soon.

Believe it or not,
2 DAYS LEFT!
I still need to call GAMA tomorrow because some of our GM badge compensations are being held up (for mysterious reasons which FORTUNATELY this time are not my fault).

On a guess, Mine and daves, since we didnt go thru the process to actually get a badge to Play anything, and all the games are listed with you as GM?

Yeah, that could be it. But I have a confirmation number in fine print that I can't read clearly. Maybe because it's a barcode)


But before I forget...ORIGINS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Like Christmas, but with stuff you want and more eccentric uncles. (More as in number of AND level of)

GOT IT FIGURED OUT! So, Dave and Ken, no you didn't mess anything up. It was...(drum roll)...ORIGINS' FAULT! They pre-approved us for 5 badges but held the others in reserve until I completed an online survey about how we wanted to use our credits (which I always just give to extra badges). I dutifully filled out the survey the day they sent out the email but then never heard back from them.

I was supposed to intuit that once I'd filled out the badges they would (at a time they never told me) release the other badges using the same login magic the first 5 badges used. They released them but never told me anything so I have been waiting for them (and their emails weren't very clear). Long and the short of it, Stephen can just use the same system he got his badge to get everyone elses. VOILA!

Oh yea, and in just 24 hours I should be about to pull into the Crowne Plaza hotel!
