Oh, wow... that was an absolute blast! I have a list of more than 10 new friends I met at the convention... not to mention the parties, events, panels, _games_ (oh, there were lots of games played). Apparently attendance was almost 1,500 people, making this the largest convention of its type in the nation (if not the world). The staff was stretched to its limit -- so I've volunteered to help next year. We'll see what happens :)
In other news, my mobile phone got lost :( I have to get a new one now. So if you're trying to reach me, leave a message on the phone's voicemail and I'll get back to you ASAP!
