    BYOC runs until 2am and not 6pm on Friday/Saturday correct?

    yes, BYOC is open for the duration of PAX hours, and is not tied to the exhibit hall hours.

    Hi everyone. I've read the rules completely but I was unable to get a 3-day pass. What I do have is 3 1-day passes back to back. Would the PAX East gods be kind enough to allow me to get a lan ticket?

    Derp also read the response about 3-1day passes. Good to go.

    Edit: I got in trouble for this post. Sorry to anyone who was bothered by me asking about the megalodon case. I didn't intend to treat the forums like craigslist or anything. Again, sorry to everyone. Didn't know I was breaking a rule with it.

    Question, I am bringing our gaming laptop to BYOC, and I have registered my son for it. Our original intention was to trade-off playing (as I did not want to register and then take up a useable spot for someone else) while the other does the rest of the PAX "tour" (so only one of us would be in the BYOC area at a time). Is this possible? I understand the potential complications but wanted to check to see if this was somehow possible. Thanks!

    That's against the rules as far as I know. It is a huge security risk to allow multiple people to use one badge. If you want both of you to have access, both of you need to have a seat.

    Yeah they definitely won't let you do that.

    To answer an earlier question... BYOC runs basically until the convention center closes- which may change from year to year. Last year, it was, yes, 2 am for fri / sat. But that could change, hence the lack of people willing to answer that yet :) Boston loves to change laws.

    Well... BYOC technically closes 15min before PAX does, cause everyone has to be out when PAX closes :P

    Previous years its been "BYOC Badass"
    Time to change it up, what say you? Give me suggestions and ill pick one!

    Something more generic like "BYOC tested, l33t skillz approved" seems fitting :P

    Was trying to work something with Lan but all I can come up with is Lanning Lannister (game of thrones). And not to many think that is a compliment :D

    Does anyone have an awesome BYOC picture I can use in the infobox?

    My parts are mostly here, what CPU did you choose? I picked an AMD A8-3870K... 4 cores and a Radeon HD 6550 on one die (F1 socket) for $130! :)

    ·
  • thorkonthorkon Registered User regular
    AMD Phenom II X4 960T Zosma 3.0GHz is the cpu I went with. First foray into AMD in along time so I'm a bit unfamiliar with them. Grabbed a 6950 (2gb) as this will be my main gaming pc for awhile. I still got to clean up some wiring on the inside, ha.

    I could never work BYOC, I'd stand around all day gawking at these amazing casemods. Nice work, @thorkon! :D

    Hey everyone,

    Jordan from GUNNAR Optiks here. If you haven't heard of GUNNARS before, we specializing in an eye wear that filters out harsh light from digital screens and basically makes your whole digital viewing experience comfortable and easy on the eyes(Most importantly is the health benefits they have by helping your eyes not work as hard).

    You can check out the glasses here at www.gunnars.com and see an animation video about our products benefits on front of our youtube page:

    Basically, the reason I'm posting this is to see interest from the attendee's in having a GUNNAR demo station set up where you can come up and rent some GUNNARS to game with during your BYOC session. All feedback would be appreciated!

    Have a good day and see everybody there!

    Regards,

    Jordan G.

    Hi everybody.

    We're going to be removing a set of tables to make room for the admin area so we're going to cap BYOC at 330. We currently have approximately 315 signed up (not all paid yet, slackers).

    So we have 15 or so slots still available as of 14:49 (GMT + 5) 2012/03/02

    I think you mean GMT -5, GMT +5 is New Delhi time.

    Eep! I'm guessing if I just signed up and paid that I'll be ok? :\
