    if you get there at 0800

    you get to wait until 1000 when it starts

    they probably just don't want to be responsible for silly people showing up too early

    Do people really line up to get into the convention center?

    Well, think of it like this

    If you're there at 8AM, there's at least one thing you can do with absolutely no waiting in line at all.

    Like, go get the PAX skin for LoL.

    Y do I have to wait for a skin?
    Just gimme skin pls.

    Give me your PAX Badges

    I imagine we'll be done early. we're not the panel and wait in line type.
    I JUST WANT THE SWAG
    YOLOSWAG

    buy me patches if they have patches. pin's are for people who want to loose things. patches are forever.

    On the contrary, pins are for people who want to hold things together!

    You are posting, you don't have to preface with 'on the contrary'
    <3

    I have patches on my bag for the pax years I went, and other game stuff. I don't trust pins like from pinny arcade, because dem bitches are smaller, more expensive, and have the possibility to be pulled/fall off.

    I liked just learning algebraic physics with an eye towards how the formulas were derived from calculus.

    It did not seem that the fundamentals were any better understood to the extent that you might dig into the act of deriving any deeper.

    Granted the basic derived formulas are wrong when applied most of the time in real life.

    I'm curious if any of you happen to know how well Mac OS X handles its own garbage collection of deleted files, seeing as by design they - as far as I'm aware - take that out of your hands.

    Yeah, first year we went, we got great seats for the Q&A and draw a comic by just walking in 2 minutes after it started. I wish I were going this year :(

    i've only been to one panel ever (q&a with mike and jerry). i liked it actually, i dunno why i never did another panel of any sort. just never shakes out. i'd rather spend that time talking to friends i guess than quietly watching a presentation.

    Yeah, I'm trying to remember how they gave out the lol skins last year, I don't think they were just in the swag bags like they had been previously, had to actually flag down a rioter or something.

    yeah remember that 'the convention is just a base of operations, we're going to hang out with friends' is a minority opinion in the grander scale

    most people are going to like spend 12+ hours a day in the convention center, see panels, learn new games, go to nerd concerts etc

    I highly suggest spending as much time as possible in the same room as Mike and Jerry while they're talking about stuff.

    And they cut all the Q&A with Mike and Jerry this year!

    I'm so sad... now I only have 1 panel to go to... what will I do with all this extra time?

    @syndalis‌

    Not quite sure what you mean WRT "garbage collection of deleted files"

    Garbage collection of objects and arrays in memory is pretty solid...

    When you delete a file, it drops it from the file system... if you delete a file via interface / Automator functions it goes into a trash bin...

    OSX is SMART capable now, so SSDs don't get junked over a long enough timeline like they used to...
