    I know! I have been refreshing the webpage waay too often. Anyone receive notice? They made it sound like they would notify the participants before releasing the names

    Tycho just called me! And I can't do it! FUCK! I knew I'd pay for leaving early. I have to leave for my flight just as the final event will start! I SUCK SO MUCH!

    I'm serious. He called and asked if I wanted to be part of the Omegathon. You'll see once people start posting who are in it.

    One of my RL best friends just got a similar call (yes, a CALL from Tycho). He's in a tough spot as well since we're actually flying in Saturday morning and it's a toss up if we'll make it to the con by 10am sharp. :(

    Well, I guess everyone still has a chance, since these calls probably take a little while to finish, and he has to make 20 (or more) of them... hopefully. =/

    Phone calls eh? I was imagining they'd do e-mail. Either way, I'm posting from work, and couldn't give my work number, and don't have access to my home e-mail. Still hoping either way, I hope that they have the patience to let me call 'em back. ;) My flight schedule is perfect for attending the Omegathon (not for sightseeing however)

    lol, yeah, it would be crazy to actually win that. It would be one of those things where your like "Holy shit! I actually won!"

    A friend of mine over at PA Cult is in. They're most definitely sending out calls.

    I'm all paranoid now - got an "out of area" call show up on my call-display, but missed it.

    Same, I don't know why they would be "out of area" though, I live in Redmond =/

    No apologies neccessary. Just the quiet certainty that I, as always, speak truth is enough.

    So what happens if they call and I'm not home? I don't remember if I entered my work phone number or not. Of course, I'd absolutely love to participate but I don't want to not be counted in simply because I was sitting at my cubicle and not at home waiting by the phone.

    If I won that, I'd give a bunch of it out there and keep the rest in my room, somehow.

    This is a good point- in the rules, it says that those drawn at random will be contacted by email...

    I want to get int just to get the old-school crap. I could care less about new-generation garbage. The gaming industry hasn't made a must-have game since the first Halo, and I don't think the second one will have quite the impact (despite that every cell in my body is telling me otherwise).

    Wanna talk about the state of the industry? Head over to "Change the Game" http://project.ubergaming.net

    Perhaps this says something about innane icon worship. (The worship is innane, not the icons. PLEASE DON'T HURT ME!)

    I got in, but not only would arriving on time for the Diceland event be extremely close (my plane arrives at 9:30), but there's no way I can be there for the last event (and possibly the next to last).

    I'm trying to get a hold of them to see if something can be worked out, but in the mean time I'm saddened beyond belief. :cry:

    Hah. Don't think they'd allow that. Then everyone could simply hand off their chance to somebody much better than them to increase their chances.

    While I was at work I got a call on my cell from my little brother. He said that Gabe called my home # and asked for me. My mom said I was at work, so he told her to congratulate me for qualifying for the Omegathon when I got home. :shock: Needless to say I've been as giddy as a school girl since I got the call. Strangely, no e-mail yet, how has it been with any other qualifier who got a call?

    Any ways, I'm going to go play DDR to try to work out my shock.

    You would think that more of the selected participants would have come here to gloat. Only 2 here, the two on PACult... just seems off. You would THINK that everyone who registered is aware of the board. :roll:

    I registered today :cry:
