well a local lan group around here in the DFW area did a pretty cool Recon mission showing the anatole and everything it has to offer and all the local stuff around it. Check it out, even if you arent going, one heck of a job they did.

Just a heads up, be sure to re-check your wait list status, it has moved quite a bit in the last week.

Nate you moved from 100 something to 33!

Check it until the day you leave!

well i get off work at 2pm thursday and will head straight there from work and i anticipate being there around 3pm.

So someone can you please save me a spot.

As far far as seating preferences go, I prefer to be on the front half (doesnt matter where) in the middle of any of the isles. So if you are one of the first ones there can you please reserve a spot on that general area??? PLEASE!!!!

I've always just setup where I wanted to... so not sure on that. I'm going to be bringing the laptop i built for myself in the DIY Gaming Notebook article I wrote... Just easier to take with me on the plane and what not.

well technically they dont let you save spots before the byoc opens(we have done it in the past with no problems). after it is open i think for the most parts its ok.

well so far we have going....

i have seats already reserved for us by the NOC. and need to get confirmation that you are going and when.

A local lan group of about 40 people called N|A did that recon and are also helping setup the event. I am good friends with one of the members(silent fart) and he has agreed to save spots for us next to them.

When i get an exact on where i will post here, STAY TUNED!!!!

Made it down to dallas today, about to go find some of the staff on site already. I wont be needing a saved seat, I have to set up near the help desk this year, since I'm running it for the night shifts. I'll be around tuesday morning setting up if you make it down.


DOULBE CHECK YOUR WAITING LIST SPOT BEFORE YOU LEAVE! THE LINE HAS MOVED OVER 100 SPOTS!
