    Do you have a credible or un-credible source for the Peter Moore rumor?

    EDIT: Never mind. You're PAX security. You count as a source.

    Did they mention that they might come in a podcast or something? I was not aware of diggnation but I am going to listen to a few of their recent podcasts. I enjoyed watching Rose on the Screen Savers on the old G4.

    These are all good...but I am looking for people that have said they are going to be there, or that someone knows will be there.

    I hope Jess "The Baroness" Chobot will be there. Unlike most nerds I actually have the balls to talk to hot women and celebrities.

    I am not absolutely sure, but I think he may BE mr. Avid X, considering his handle is Avid.

    I mean, he could just be a truly huge fan of his, but I am going to go out on a limb and say that this could very well be the guy. Unconfirmed until he himself says he is. Just getting my theory out there.

    EDIT: Plus, he said he was in the IRC channel.

    If you have fans (i.e. people who send you, what could be considered fan mail) you are a "famous Internet" person in my book. I for example, help run GPUReview.com, and people enjoy my news posts, but I do not receive "fan" mail.

    I will add all three of you to the list. Do you have "real" names that I can list?

    Never mind about the "real" names thing. I found everything I need except for Esko's last name.
