  1. Prices don't go down for the most part. Hotels set the price on the cost of doing business plus a profit. If you try to make the profit too high, you kill your business by scaring off the guests. They have to maintain the rooms, utilities, upgrades every few years, pay staff, etc. The new hotel up the road which was built a few years ago is $140 a night and that is in the suburbs of Philadelphia. In the city itself I bet the prices are much higher. We all want more pay to make our lives easier and that includes hotel staff. It is a never ending cycle unfortunately.
  2. Thank you for posting this. Happened to log on this morning to check for updates and went in to register.
  3. My deepest sympathies to his family. 🙁 https://www.tmz.com/2022/11/20/power-rangers-jason-david-frank-dead-dies-tommy-oliver-green-white/
  4. I have been dealing with a similar situation at work where a customer self hosts our application on their virtual servers. They built new virtual servers with Widows/SQL Server 2019. They started complaining about performance issues after running a massive Monthly job which generated hundreds of thousands of transactions. They were not monitoring their system, so our team was pulled in 2 days after to figure out what is happening. On the very first day of my involvement I asked them to check the virtual system (asked at least 3 times throughout the day). The 2nd day of the outage call I asked
  5. Seems like no one cares about the BBS any more. When Zuckerbook and Twelonter tank maybe people will come back.
  6. I am not from that area and only do shopping during the day. Never had any problems walking down from the convention center towards Chinatown. Highly recommend getting one of the folding maps they sell in one of the drug stores (maybe Wallgreens?). They have indicators for the train stops on those maps too. A decent compass is not a bad idea, either. Have been going to DC since Otakon moved there and only found the 2nd Dunkin Donuts this year. When waiting to check out from Otakon 2022, I noticed some courtesy printouts of the local restaurant locations at the Concierge desk. Will have to
  7. If you are going for bands, why not TOKYO GROOVE JYOSHI? They have a guest Syamisen player in this video. https://youtu.be/g46tXWxtsfY https://tokyogroovejyoshi.com/
  8. For all we know, the people who tested positive were exposed prior to the convention. I waited a few days and did a rapid test, then did another one on the weekend after before visiting people. Otakon had pretty strict policies in place (COVID bands had to be visible when entering the convention), and the crowd was more likely to be vaccinated.
  9. @MattTheMinion - Are you the person to review this?
  10. I received a notice that the Let's Encrypt certificate on this site expired on 8/4. Someone please verify it. Thank you.
  11. Out of all the years I have been to Otakon, only one time was there a white noise machine in the room. I don't know if it was left by a guest, in the room for a specific reason (e.g. close to the elevator, vending room, etc.), or supplied by the hotel for the previous guest. For a while I needed one to sleep and brought my own unit. The coffee machines are usually just ones to make a single cup of coffee from a disposable packet (giant tea bag equivalent). Not really top tier coffee, but a basic cup. My roommate complains about the water coming out tasting like coffee, but in all fairness
  12. Pardon my ignorance, but what defines slapping? Ranma 1/2 had some very catchy opening and closing themes. Tank! from Cowboy Bebop. Just Think of Tomorrow from Irresponsible Captain Tylor. Card Captor Sakura had some good opening themes.
  13. The staffers in that morass on Saturday were shouting, but getting muffled out in the throng of people. Great way to burn out their voices too. Megaphones might help, but more electronic message boards throughout would be better. If you could read a sign instead of shouting the information you could get a better response. quick edit: Better signage at the security check-in would help get people through more quickly. Put up 3-4 static signs in the line path saying to put your electronics on a specific side, to make a gap when approaching the scanner, to hold your arms apart at the scan, an
