    I will, however, be enjoying a proper cheesesteak at Citizen Bank ballpark on Sept 8 along with a Yuengling lager and the biggest damn grin... I get all misty just thinking about it.
    Ahh yeah...Yuengling Lager is another of my favorites. The brewery tour is so worth it.

        So how did everyone skip over the idea for a keyboard guitar hacking contest. i would definitely compete.

        As for cheese steaks. I volunteer to take orders, and stop at pats before leaving for the con next year. they can hold up surprisingly well for a few days.

          I grew up in Harrisburg. We used to drive past Pottsville on the way to see family in the coal region, but it never occured to me to take the tour. That's an idea for a day trip with my baby brother when I go visit (super soon!). Thanks!

          And, uh, to get back on topic - The Guitar Hero thing was cool in that it got a bunch of people together, interacting about a thing. Most geeks/hackers/whatever I know are multi-faceted people, who devote at least some of their time to things that don't involve sitting in front of a screen. Sure, in this case they're standing in front of one, but they're definitely engaging more of their bodies doing it and talking to the people around them. And, as someone who had a new contest this year (the Phreaking Challenge) and who talked with Lost about the challenges of being a new contest, the turnout for the Guitar Hero thing was really impressive. It shows that there's room for light-hearted fun between the serious knowledge stuff and the complete drunken randomness. The only downside, for me, was hearing a few of the same songs over and over again...

            Whats wrong with the PS2? Does he not have one?

            I've got a slimline one.. not modded, but apparently you can mod them just buy putting some plastic clips in certain spots so it'll run with the lid open and then use a swap cd.

            I favor the PS2 experience for guitar hero because you can do these custom songs, and you've got THREE official games to choose from vs. just guitar hero 2. Even though the engine in guitar hero 1 gets annoying once you get up to hard/expert play.

            On saturday night, me and some friends hooked up my ps2 w/ guitar hero to a public tv in the contest room around 3am.. was anyone in this thread there? We played with a few other people from the con, the security guards and floor manager were watching us play for a little while too. Quit around 6am.

              If you do it on a weekend day, I could be convinced to drive up and join in.

                PhillyCheeseSteakCon is on!...if we can find a time suitable for all. Weekend works best for me, too.

                  I think that can be arranged somehow. I offer up my castle for anyone who wishes to have some sleeping space for an overnight stay. While there's a fellow who resides in our guest room now, we have an air mattress and a ton of couches, etc.

                  That plus the well-stocked bar could == win.
                  "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."

                    Any preferences for either August 18th or 25th? I expect for me it'll probably be just a day trip, but I'll leave my options open.
