    Based on personal experience, I have always gotten the the con on a Thursday and there has always been something going on. You will find a lot of people usually at the hotel bar and lobby doing the check-in and meet and greet. It's great seeing the people roll in because it gives you time to catch up before all the craziness starts. It also gives you time to get crazy before the con starts if you are going to spend all day at the talks.

    you're out til then, or at least until the NOC is up and running, which could be Thursday, Friday, Wednesday,...... The Alexis has the jacks and patch panel, but no hookups til someone does it.

    Goon question - does DC hotsite before the con somewhere to test the rig before it's installed (ala N/I), or just hope and pray?

    ) goons need any help in setup?
    In order:

    - It shouldn't. If you arrive a day or two in advance, you'll still be able to purchase your badge starting on Friday same as everyone else.

    - You'll see the other early arrivals when you get there, trust me :)

    - I think we've pretty much got setup covered based on the run we made out to the AP last month to get some last-minute details ironed out, but thanks for the offer :)

    Are there a limit of badges being sold?
    Does anyone know the room rates this year?
    In order:

    - No, but you must have a badge to enter the hotel.

    - Don't know. Maybe, maybe not. Haven't heard anything one way or the other.

    - I believe they're $129/night, but could be wrong. Check http://www.alexispark.com for their contact info.

    Also, someone mentioned a few times that this is supposed to be 3 days, but they usually last a couple more days than normal...is this true usually?
    The con itself runs for three days only. However, some people get there a day or two before, others leave a day or two after.

    I can't pledge the whole time before, but would be willing to offer up some time and energy
