      I think You and voltage spike opted to have me give you two your drinks in person. You by choice, and Voltage Spike because the member I asked to distribute my thank-yous at DC13 could not find him. (One or two of the people delivered thank-you's to at DC 13 were people I owed beer during DC12, but could not find because one was sick and the other was not there.)

      The "a beer" I mentioned here is in addition to the one I would give you in person, pre DC13.

      I'm pretty organized with this stuff. I have URLs and notes for these promises. These promises are not my limits, but are minimums...

      Someone once said, "You may forget the people to which you owe beer, but they won't." As a result, I try to keep a list of minimums to meet as well as why.

        a note about this, when i was speaking to Helga (it seems we all get her when we call) she indicated that the first come, first serve policy was in effect, but that it was contingent upon check-in, not booking. makes me glad i arrive at DefCon so early.
        "I'll admit I had an OiNK account and frequented it quite often… What made OiNK a great place was that it was like the world's greatest record store… iTunes kind of feels like Sam Goody to me. I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

                    Thanks for taking the time. 14 should be an interesting shakedown.

                    • Party planning?

                      How are we to plan for parties? I don't think my inflatables will fit in a room party.

                      Perhaps those of us who threw pool parties last year should band together to make sure that there is a dj rotation, bars/bartenters and food. If we can still have a pool party.

                      Frankly, I liked the 3 pool layout as it allowed a varity of music and events.

                      Aside from this (we have already invested a fair amount in gear and party supplies, and I would hate to see it go to waste or feel I have wasted my $) I'm glad to be rid of the ap.

                      More details would be nice though.

                      • Another though...

                        The hotel has it's own nightclub, think they'd be willing to stay open round the clock? Also, think we could bring in our own DJs?

                        • There is also a nice variety of areas around the convention space. If defcon keeps them open 24h then those could make for some good (large) party areas as well. At least there will be less of a chance of people stepping on broken glass with barefoot feet if we're away from the pool too.
                          --- The fuck? Have you ever BEEN to Defcon?

                            I do not think they would do that until 2008 when DT has the option to rent out the whole space.

                              I was wondering the same thing. From the recon photos it seems like all the parties will almost have to be moved inside. Room parties will probably be the majority, but in your case some of the chill out rooms with high ceilings may be the only hope to keep the Pumpkin Man alive.

                              It wouldn't be hard to pull a takeover of a chill out area or grab one of those areas with a bar. I wouldn't worry too much. We'll find ways to adapt.
                              The dude abides.

                                Do not anger Pumpkin Man!! Pumpkin Man demands a 12 foot tall inflatable woman as tribute this year!
