    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.

    Don't worry, it's only your 2nd PAX. Plenty of time to get selected. It took me 8 PAXs before I got picked.

    That was probably cruise ship spam. I got that one this morning too (and finally got around to blocking the number). It's a portland number that starts out with a ships horn, then "this is your captain speaking". Omeganaut calls went out only today, and come from a blocked "unknown number".

    Eh? I more think it's funny because I did a call just a boring "adult" call (I don't wanna grow up.) at exactly the right time (in between when this was posted and updated to show they were all done calling.)
    This is actually a bit of a theme. My wife's switchboard blocks caller ID and last year I got a call from her at this time too, "Unknown" I picked up "Hello?!...Oh, it's you." Needless to say, that don't make your wife happy.
    My wife does plan to see if there were any calls at her work when she gets back in on monday. Mostly to see if she managed to confuse her desk squatter (which is really just our goal.)

    I'm in! I got the call at work and I've been almost completely unable to concentrate since then. Also only my 2nd PAX ever after PAX East this spring!

    I've been refreshing my email for the last few hours waiting for the "more details" that were promised :) I've had some issues before with my email not being transcribed correctly over the phone - is there any way to double check that my correct email address is on file?

    If Gabe hadn't asked me to verify my e-mail address I'd be having fits about it, too!

    All about the TRIP! I would love to go to Japan, I've wanted to for years!

    Cash eventually gets spent. A trip to Japan stays with you forever. I'd go to Japan!

    The trip is for two.

    I got the email so I guess it's official. I'm an Omeganaut this year :-)

    Twitter is @geeeeoffff I will probably only start posting closer to the event.

    Also, I heard Omeganauts get some sort of special badge. Does that mean I can give my 3-day to a friend who missed the deadline to buy passes?

    I was also curious about that because it never actually said for two, but it did have 'each' in there, which threw me off.

    I asked and was told that I'd need my badge. I'd promised mine to a friend too, since I was going to enforce.

    Robert Khoo will give you dirty looks if you don't bring a badge/forget it at home.
    I'm sorry Robert <3

    I was an Omeganaut in 2010. Ask me anything.

    The girls were all scared off by my STALKER: Clear Sky costume during PAX. I can't possibly fathom why.

    I plead the fifth about the TWDT. Insert obvious alcohol related joke here.
