I think we will definitely be looking VERY seriously at making the trip- nothing set in stone yet, of course.

Oh, do come, do come!! It's loads of fun and there will be a cadre of Forum members there who will make you welcome and cushion any bumps along the road, and keep you company in the bar. New Orleans in September will be HOT and HUMID. Not to worry - you may never really find a reason to go out of the hotel - it's a DWCon after all. :wink: If you think you might, pack a pair of shorts or lightweight trousers and a short-sleeved shirt, and sandals if you have room, and you will be sorted.

RavensQuoth have hinted that the hotel is downtown, so you should be able to get a shuttle from the airport. Suggest you plan to arrive on the Thursday to make sure you're settled in well for the Friday festivities. Once again - there will be Forum members doing the same thing who will be glad to gather you in, make sure you're fed, and carry you into the Thursday night quiz.

As an American, I have my own set of TSA hurdles so don't want to advise you on that, or immigration, but others here can.

Really do hope to see you there! :sunny: :sunny: :sunny:

Who are the guests of honour ? The usual suspects ?

Can you do something about the legibility of the site ? The contrast is very poor, and people with older eyes may find it hard to read.

Oook!

I tried on the "Personal Shopper" thread and got nowhere, so I'm asking here if someone would be willing to bend the regs just a smidge and purchase some items for me* while attending this convention?

First one to PM me wins a smile & my eternal** gratitude! :thumbl:

* for which I will refund you fully, including the shipping to a relative of mine in the USA
** approx. 1 year, or until I'm distracted by something shiny
What ape? Oook! :book:

Any of you lot bringing a laptop to the Con? I've committed to doing a stamps program and was going to do an illustrated talk, but ConCom don't provide laptops. :?: :?: :shock: :roll: I love DW fans, but I'm not ready to hand around my more precious stuff, and honestly don't want to carry it on the airplane either.

I am, let me know if you need it.

Your stamp panel was mentioned on our panel call today (PHX group, we are calling ourselves the Djelibeybi (sp?) delegation). Well done! Raises geek cred like crazy.
