      which brings me to the retelling of the story behind the BEST DEFCON QUOTE EVER.......


      It was the wensday before DefCon 10. I had just picked up Octal (-pussy) from the airport, we met up with a few other atendees in the lobby. As all 6 of us strode back to the rooms (each of us dressed in the same All Black clothes, and two of us in full length trench's) to drop off everyones things (all of which was pack in HUGE Pelican cases as luck would have it) about 6 of the girls swam over to the edge of pool 1 and stoped us in our tracks (a few of the pelican cases were even dropped to the ground in a moment of shock) by looking up at us with hope in there 12-14 year old eyes and asking one simple question that will forever be burned into my mind ................................... "HEY!, are you guys filming a movie?"


      best line ever!
      If I had a nickle for every time someone offered me ten cents to keep my two cents to myself... I would be a rich man.

        they arn't trying to edge out con with pricing.....


        i remember reading this somewhere;
        theory of supply and demand.

        if con invokes the selling out of all rooms for 2 or 3 local hotels, then they can afford to raise the price without the risk of losing buisness.

        but i would count on alot more roomsharing this year. i think we had 7 at our place one night last year, and i'm sure we were far from the most crowded.

              I was at the AP this past weekend, gotta hate that ugly "New Mexico Sunset" dark orange color they are painting it. I got pics, maybe I need to post them so folks will know what the hotel looks like now.

                Yea, good plan. You might want to resize them from 8 megs though, that seems a little too detailed.

                      He did post them (notice the comments by TwinVega and EvilMoFo). I assume he didn't post a direct link to avoid a flood of traffic to his photo gallery.

                        The new owners are either color blind or have really, really bad taste.

                          I'd be more amazed that the trenchcoaters didn't drop dead of heatstroke.

                            I was being a little facetious when I said that, just commenting how AST's camera kicks ass. However there are pics available from kallahar I believe if you check out 23b's gallery, should be in the 2005 new years section, that's all I'm giving you.

                              Its Vegas, the colors are made that way on purpose to clash with the decore.
                              Did Everquest teach you that?

                                Thanks for the high quality pics astcell. Everyone's been talking, but I had yet to see some decent pics until now.
