    Hm.
    How about using the Mustang Ranch as a background?

    The way alot of parents seem to think, you could put up a background that resembled a Mexican prison and they'd be more relaxed than if you actually showed their little baby at a hacker convention.

    great idea astcell.. but I think you should have diffrent backgrounds.. igloos... maybe like some restraunt scene... or some shots at like a nuclear reactor... that would rock

    I met a kid and his dad at DC9.. they flew all the way from Poland. His dad was amazed by all the folks and did not seem to mind in the least bit about everything going on. He muttered something about wanting to "observe their habits"...

    Bringing a Desktop

    I've brought my desktop before, and it wasn't weird at all.
    It came in handy in the hotel room, more than on the floor as it is akward to have to carry a full size pc around. I had a flat panel monitor so it made things a lot easier to carry. Just make sure you keep an eye on your stuff, because it might walk off if you don't.

I also will have my Sharp Zaurus PDA that is Linux powered, and will have a compact flash 802.11b card for it. so i can go "war-walking." lol. But will it be weird if i bring a desktop?
    Actually people bring anyting. Also, the GeekWearz table sells harnesses to make carrying a desktop around a bit easier for those just like yourself.
