Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

FOLLOW AUSPAX2011 ON TWITTER FOR ALL UPDATES!

======= LATEST DEVELOPMENTS =======

All confirmations are in! This means that I, the most important person ever, am now working on finalising your ROOM ASSIGNMENTS and HOW MUCH YOU NEED TO PAY.

I will get this done as soon as possible but rest easy; you will have another month or so to get the scratch together, or I may be able to put you on a payment plan if I like you enough!

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL ROOM ASSIGNMENTS COME WITH A STRICT DEAL W/ IT POLICY. ONCE I HAVE SENT OUT THE ROOM LIST I WILL NOT CHANGE IT.

You MUST pay me the amount I am asking for, even if you have switched rooms with someone (which you are allowed to do on your own and without bothering me). I will confirm where everyone is sleeping closer to the actual trip.

So if your room costs $400 and the person you're switching with is paying $300, I MUST STILL RECEIVE $400 FROM YOU. The person you're switching with can either transfer you money or give you cash on arrival, but I will NOT be dealing with room switches because I might just start losing my mind.

Finally, PLEASE DO NOT BRING INFLATABLE MATTRESSES. Only bring bedrolls or sleeping bags if they are small and if you are willing to put them away EACH MORNING.

    Good work Viv. Thank you again for slogging it out and organizing this.

    To people in Melbourne who are attending, I think it might only be Synth. But maybe LaCabra?
    We should totally cab to the airport and catch the same flight. Or something.

    My posting finger was itching to make one. HB even dared me to. But no, no man steps on Viv's turf. That's like walking into one of her volleyball games. Something catches your foot and you've got a faceful of gym floor. You look up to stare into those soul-less asian eyes of hers, those you've only graced for mere moments whenever you see a disaproving Chinese parent on any Australian drama. These are the pools of terror for which you have begun wading in.

    A volleyball under one arm, the other a space reserved for your delinquent cranium. Her lips barely move but you feel the cold, icy breath of her words. Words that will haunt you, echo in every piece of worldly adivce you give to those you may sire in the future. Words you hope to never say yourself, heaven forbid you disgrace them with your soiled soul.

    for anyone travelling to/from brisbane, this shuttle thing seems simple enough to use

    there seem to be like 5 trips to/from brisbane every day

    plus apparently they can drop you off/pick you up at the exact address for like $10 more

    the top 8 are singing "Fuck You"

    they have changed it to "Forget You"

    Most of them can hold a fauxhawk better than they can hold a tune

    If you sign up for Dollar Shave Club here I get a free month of tiny metal blades delivered right to my house. Seems legit.
