Hey, Nick, I'll look forward to seeing you there!

Nick Sagan

Sounds great, Tobias, it'll be fun to catch up!


Perhaps you didn't hear - The convention is being relocated to Wichita, Kansas..
So I'll see you there! :)

* meanwhile back in the real world.. *

I'm so bummed that Michigan is 1,000 miles away.. I want to be the new people that you meet and remain perfectly sober with - and hang out with my friend Mr. Cuervo. He's an interesting character, always bringing out the best in me. :)


What I'll be doing while you're having fun at the convention...


Jay Maynard

I'm looking forward to the con, and especially hanging with real live SF authors.

Oh, and Audrey: Fairmont to Troy is 750 miles, more or less, and I'm driving...

Thanks for posting this, Nick! Never fear, half the people who attend Penguicon know nothing about Linux. I never used it until years after I started helping run the event. Even these days I'm allergic to the command line. But if you attend this SF convention long enough, you never know what will happen to your computing habits...

I look forward to meeting you there!

jay - great! so you'll be picking me up along your journey?

Jay Maynard

Uhm...Wichita is about 600 miles in the wrong direction...sorry.


Anything with the root word of penguin in it and the relating to the word "nifty" sounds amazing. Too bad Phoenix is farther from Troy than Witchita and Fairmont combined.


Sounds like a fun con!
