    I'm glad to hear this will be included in the PAX08 DVD, as [imo] it's one of the few pre/post PAX events that deserve to be on it. I'm just hoping the DVD turns out better then last years. My friend also got a nice camcorder for PAX, so we'll be filming a lot of it too lulz.

    Uh, not quite, I did say to Chris Taylor that he didn't have to pay, but that's because he's writing and delivering a speech and bringing swag.

    Also there's a Chris Taylor signed up, so he might have paid anyway (but it's common name).

    bull, i'm gracing you slobs with my glorious presence, i demand my money back! :P

    Aye, hopefully I'll find out tomorrow where they stand on it. I can see it going either way... I have been nudging them about several things thus far, so they may draw the line on me... but then again, it's good (and deserving!) press for them if they help out with it.

    This'll be the last thing I ask of them, so hopefully given that fact they'll be willing to give in and help in some way. =) =)

    Fuck.

    Signed up and forgot to ask the most important question for me.

    I have a nut allergy. Doesn't list nuts in anything there so I assume i'm safe?

    I heard back from the catering company. They said that the mix they'll use to make the strawberry shortcake dessert may contains nuts, but aside from that, nothing else should directly (potentially) contain nuts.

    OP Post updated to include allergen information.

    Porkfry is the producer, therefore it will rock beyond all imagining. Even beyond all imagineering!

    Yeah. What does Pork do during PAX? Is he responsible for anything? Does he work for Penny Arcade Inc? I don't think he does.

    1. I'm the Executive Producer of the PAX08 DVD this year. As such I'm going to be rushing all over PAX making sure things recording wise are going as I want them to, in addition to getting awesome footage!
    2. The PAX08 DVD this year
    3. No I don't work for PA. For my day job I shoot birds at the air port.

    So this will be my first PAX, and I'm going solo since I don't have any gamer friends. And I'm a little shy, so will I be totally freaked out if I go to this to try and meet someone to go to PAX with? Ack! o_O

    No, that's not a problem at all amigo! =) Indeed, that's exactly the kind of thing that these Pre-PAX events are designed for, so you're in the right place! =) It's a great place to meet people in a much smaller environment before going to the gigantic huge one =)

    Come say hi to me! I'll be the fellow with the poofy hair and the cardboard Wrex mask! =)

    EDIT: Maybe not poofy hair. I forgot I was under orders from my wife to get a haircut before PAX =) lol

    VT is right, PAX is an awesome place to meet people and socialize. I have a shy problem too, but i'm going with a group of 7 people, so i'm not worried.
    WOOT! =)

    And this shortcake is *not* a lie! =) yea! =) =)

    Don't make me start yelling "the cake is a lie" every time somebody grabs a piece of shortcake. :P

    PAX is not a dating service (hmmm... sounds like a good thread title :P), but other than that, yeah, this is a great place to sit down and network with folks who'll be going to the con.

    You know, I've been thinking, we on the forums should probably revise the 'PAX is not a dating service' credo. 'PAX is not a pick-up bar' is probably the closest sentiment. It should be expected and encouraged that people with similar interests should meet at PAX, but don't hit everything in sight with lines.

    but don't hit everything in sight with lines of cocaine.

    That would be wasteful and super expensive.

    but don't hit everything in sight with lines of webbing.

    Unless you are Spider-Man and you are trying capture criminals. WACHOW!

    but don't hit everything in sight with fishing line.

    People could get tangled up and strong lines can cut through skin.

    but don't hit everything in sight with vines.

    Unless you are Poison Ivy.

    but don't hit everything in sight with Clotheslines.

    Unless you are a crazy professional wrestler.

    Go say you're really sorry, she was completely right to react how she did, you were way out of line, ask her what would she like you to do to make it up to her, after you have made her a cup of tea/coffee, done the dishwasher, made her some toast, fetched her slippers. Yes, you've got it, work on her!
