Ya, the more I think about it, I'm leaning towards not going... for a couple of reasons...
1. While I have enough vacation time, I'd like to save it up for a different event I haven't been to before.
2. I'm afraid QCon will be a big disappointment this year since it was just announced 6 weeks before go-time. I doubt they had many sponsors or speakers lined up when they announced it... and I go for the events and booths, not just the BYOC. And I can BYOC here in STL.

If I change my mind suddenly, I'll let everyone know.

Little bump to see if any one has finalized their plans yet.

Nah it doesn't suck... I believe both Justin and Brian will be in STL during your LAN... Maybe one or both of them would be willing to do something for your next lan.

I'm re-evaluating going to Quakecon... I'd hate to miss the opportunity to meet the forum members... and airfare is still pretty cheap. Time to consult the wifey.

Yes Thor and his sidekick Archangel talked me into going this year. Flying down way too early in the morning. I'm looking forward to this as it's the First Qcon I've been able to make. I got my plane ticket, time off from work, and 2 new harddrives on the way :lol:

I went ahead and registered just in case I go and this is the message I got:
You registered for QuakeCon on July 11, 2006, 4:27 pm. You were # 4942 to sign up for QuakeCon!
Looks like there will be no shortage of gamers present!
