    And here I am working in a metal building with no cell reception. I really gotta find a new job or just take myself out of the omeganaut pool to avoid disappointment.

    I know I know, can't please everyone all the time.

    Ditto for me. And my wife, who bought her ticket separately to increase chances, listed her work number, but she's out of town (ironically her desk is being occupied by someone else right now.)

    List the work number. GENIUS! Would Mike and Jerry bother going through a receptionist or phone system though?

    Well, I got a call from an unavailable number. I didn't answer it. I figured if it was them, it would come from a Seattle area code.

    After the call, I saw the tweet that the number they use is blocked. Oops. Hopefully that wasn't them.

    Yeah it was totally them. Probably. Oops.

    They called me at work after reaching my wife at home back in 2007.

    Now that makes me wonder if I can just say in my voice mail message that I accept... BRB recording voice mail message.

    I don't want to be an Omeganaut. It would take away from all the other fun stuff I'm going to do.

    I just made my coworker come in and watch my phone while I ran to the bathroom.

    Also part of me really wants to get a blocked number and start calling my friends who are going to PAX, just to mess with them.

    jesus, that was the most horrifying thing in the world to wake up to: a twitter update that calls are going out, and a missed call from an area code i don't recognize. Icalled back, found out it was a telemarketer and hung up.


    did i tell you guys i got off work at 7am? (12:24pm now)

    I've just had a call from a blocked number.

    It was my pigging credit card company telling me they'd declined my payment for the apartment I'm renting in Seattle cos it was foreign!!! I told them to phone Seattle and apologise. They did.

    I can't remember from registration; do you have to have a 3-day badge to qualify or does 3 1-day badges suffice?

  • lizpiratelizpirate Registered User
    I believe it's only 3 day passes, but it's possible I'm wrong with the registration kerfluffle this year.

    I think it would be hilarious if they filmed themselves doing the calls and then posted it online--I would love to hear all the reactions from the people they call!

    Well, it could easily be some random person calling people and asking them if they want to be Omeganauts. No way to know for sure it was Mike and Jerry right?
    It could all be a big scam ;)

    It was definitely Mike's voice, we've met on and off for a few years now. But I'm have trouble believing I'm that lucky.

    At first I was excited but now very disappointed to know that only 3-Day Passes were entered into the pool. I wish there was a way for them to recognize when you buy all three individual days instead.

    At least I had the opportunity to register in time, though. I feel that matters more than anything.

    My phone starting ringing in the middle of a meeting, I pulled it out and....it was the lender for my Mortgage (the wife and I are buying our first house right now.)
    So..erg...I guess that's actually kinda more important than the Omeganaut thing. But yeah, nothing. And a bit disappointing. I mean we swing from "Childish glee!" to "Adult life crap" in one caller ID.

    I can pretty much assure that my wife didn't get a call because of the fact that a) she put her work number and b) someone else is occupying her desk during her business trip and c) she's more or less unreachable during the day during said business trip (she's way back in some server closet where phones don't go.)
    Oh and d) she hasn't called me yet :P.

    Oh wellz, there's likely not next year (personal reasons not likely to make PAX), but I'll still have fun at my second PAX.
