  1. I have to say I'm very much looking forward to this. Each summer, Otakon is my de facto birthday celebration. That's true now even though I am in my 50s. With this setup, we're going to have several screens to set up the different rooms and panels! I'll have one main channel on the big TV living room, another on a desktop computer in the same room, third upstairs in my wife's sanctuary, another will be on my phone. I think that covers almost everything. Oh, and I'll be wearing one of my old badges to boot. Otakon, I definitely want to thank you very much for this.
  2. WHOO HOO!!! Thank you Otakon for the announcement! Now I just have to finagle being in front of a computer in ten days . . . #LookingForwardAlready
  3. Thank you. It's something I may consider this coming Otakon (assuming it returns.) I have gaggle of suits (about a dozen or so) but have yet to plunk down the yen for a bespoke tux.\ My next challenge would be to teach Dr. Mrs. how to dance. I'll start by getting her to watch "Welcome to the Ballroom" and work up from there. ~_^
  4. LOL - I just came here today on a lark to see if there was any news on this exact subject!
  5. I took the Clara Barton parkway, which dumps out onto the Whitehurst freeway (don't go through Georgetown) and the freeway puts you on K street. However the Clara Barton does flip during rush hour to outbound only during rush hour. If you're coming down on a Thursday, wait until after rush hour if you can't take off work. Hopefully that helps for next year.
  6. Soooo much for this. I’m sure I forgot things. The Good: · Lines. I say this year in and year out – the line management has come soooo far in the decades I’ve been coming to Otakon. There is space for lines when they pop up. Gigantic lines (like the dealers room) actually move very well. Pre-Reg pickup continues to be BEYOND blissful on Thursday, and the 18+ line was amazing as well that day! Bag check line gets its own bullet point. · Bag Check Line was Gold. I remember the issues with the bag check line the first time in D.C. (and most major conventions
  7. ^^^^^ ME. Also, need to decide what celebrations will be on Saturday.
  8. W00T!!! WE HAVE GUIDEBOOK!!!!
  9. Any idea when the Guidebook will be live? I use that thing constantly.
  10. Man, I thought I left Peer Pressure back in High School! Ah well... * * * -Personal Stats- Name (First name or Alias):: Revengel or The Revengel Age:: 39 Male or Female:: Male Do you need sleep at a con? At least a couple hours per night... Drink or smoke:: About a glass of wine per year. Tell us about yourself:: Otakon IV was my first con...and I've been hooked ever since. I have a comic book background and I *still* remember how a friend got me hooked on Anime by giving me some Ranma 1/2 Fansubs. That was 1996. Now if you want to get specific one
  11. Intersting topic. I have a related question: What changes do you think will be made in the dealer's room due to the economy? Will they change prices? Will some of them change what they bring? Will the room be larger or smaller? Just some thoughts...
  12. Briefly: What I meant by 'Later' refers to what has been said by one of the admins in another thread. When Otakon negotiates room rates there are several things - specifically consessions - that are negatiated. One of the major trade offs is if the hotel gives a lower rate, then the annoucement of the con rate being available can be made by the hotel itself as soon as they wish to. That means (among other things) that before Otakon has annouced what hotels have been signed for Otakon on the website. On the flip side if Otakon puts in the contract that the hotel cannot annou
