    ahhh gotcha... I was guessing it was something like that... he doesn't have a location in his name though.

    Ah yeah, whoops. Sorry about that, I should have said. The hardware is exactly the same, and I have a USB charger that will work perfectly if you want that - it won't work with the DSi.

    I'll be bringing my DSi, and my girlfriend will have her DS. If I haven't sold my old Japanese dark-blue DS by then I can lend it (or sell it!) to someone else to contribute to the Cause.

    Yes. Capital C on Cause, just beCause.

    Hmm I will buy either yours or Willeths depending on price (whichever is cheaper of course) although if yours comes with a charger, I might have to go with yours squirminator.

    Haha we should start an online DS auction...

    I have a charger with mine. One of the regulars at my local vidjagame emporium has expressed an interest but as I haven't heard back from him he's probably not going to go for it. That and he's a bit of a flake and I don't know who he is.

    Feel free to PM me to discuss pricing and/or to haggle.

    Sorry Moe.... Sorry JonnyNero.
    I don't think I'm doing a very good job of making friends... Just kind of annoying saying 'maybe' especially if people are signing up for stuff.

    Anyway, this sounds like fun... I shall have to steal my brother's DS for occasion.

    No worries!

    I'm only doing it on stuff so that people can pencil me in, because it's cutting it down to the wire for me. I may not know for sure until two weeks out, so I'm only "conditionally committing" to things that have a lot of people, so that it won't really effect the final planning of the activity

    I'm just wondering if I should bring a couple extra DS's to share with other fellow PAXers who want to be in on it, but don't have a DS. Anyone have any idea if thats a good idea or not? As this is my first PAX I don't know the average trustworthyness of the group.

    PS thanks for the sig who ever made it!!!!

    I think I'm going to either buy a new DS, or a used PAXer DS. Either way I think you should still bring extras, worst case people without DS' can download play with you.

    Well this is my first PAX too... I think there's kind of a fine line between 'Paxers' and people just there for PAX? Correct me if I'm wrong people, but Paxers are the forumers who post and make friends online before the event. The rest just sort of come on their own accord and don't really pay attention to all the forum organized events?

    I wouldn't lend out the DS' to anyone outside the forum group, but out of the people I've met on here so far, I'd say they're all trustworthy.

    Yeah... Paxers are everyone... and just because you arent a forumer doesnt mean you cant participate in all the community organized events... Thats something that you have seemed to misinterpret since you got here. None of these events are exclusive... the point is to get the community together, so the more the better. And actually there are quite a few people who never go on the forums that still participate in the community events...

    and also is it me or does Serenity keep throwing our threads off topic? lol :P

    I've seen full wallets and the like fill up the PAX lost and found plenty of times. I wouldn't worry too much. Just trust your instinct, and if you meet some cool people ask if they want to to borrow and participate.

    Yeah sorry, I tend to do that... :oops: but we all do it... you were just mentioning that about yourself(in another thread) weren't you? I think the problem is there's no real "random stuff here" thread. I suppose I can always make one...
    But yeah SORRY! guys. I'll try to keep on topic...

    I know about a hundred PMS H2O Clan members/community, Frag Doll members/community, ECA community members willing to help out as well.

    This sounds like fun!

    Yo Jeppy, you can let me use one!
    My plan was to get one before PAX but you know, money difficulties.
    Would still like to participate in this though...
    Sounds like fun and possibly the only chance I'll have to be part of a world record.

    Theres a few of us that will have thumb clickers at the entrance, and then the PAX DVD crew will also be there to film the event.

    We'll have counting redundancy out the wazoo!

    It is 1DS/1person, so if you have extra maybe you can share with someone else and be extra cool.

    I'm one without a DS so if you have extra, share them around!
