    Schedule is Out!

    I see they're going to be showing Tensi Shitara Slime Datta Ken ("That Time I Was Reincarnated as a Slime"). That's my current favorite series, so... I've got to go change my Gofer schedule availability.

    Gomenasai I'm always more than fashionably late to the party.

    Question about being a Gofer?

    Welcome to "The Dark Side"! (a.k.a. "Gofer-dom") Once you've joined, you'll never look at Otakon in the same way again! ...in a GOOD way, of course. Hmmm... I attended Otakon Vegas 2014 as well. I think I need to add it to my signature.

    Scooters in DC?

    I drive nights for Uber in the DC metro area and can confirm that there are a LOT of rentable electric scooters in DC that are in use at all hours of the night. Metro is an alternative option up until midnight or so - when Metro service stops for the night. Uber/Lyft, etc. are other options, but if you're looking for one in the midnight to 3:30 am time frame you will probably be in a "surge pricing" area and the rates will be higher than you are normally used to. The majority of the NW DC night scene (especially Adams Morgan) on weekends becomes surge pricing as closing time approaches. For DC, closing time is 3:00 am for alcohol establishments. The following are some of the recent article headlines in the Washington Post (sorted newest to oldest) regarding scooter usage in DC: DC suspends Skip scooter service after second fire within a month. (June 19, 2019) More Washingtonians say drivers are bad than say the same of cyclists, walkers, scooter riders, (June 10, 2019) Nearly 1 in 6 D.C. residents use e-scooters, poll finds (June 7, 2019) Boom in electric scooters leads to more injuries, fatalities (June 6, 2019) Skip suspends e-scooter service while it reviews fire (May 31, 2019) An electric scooter caught fire in downtown D.C. (May 30, 2019) Red Line trains no longer single-tracking after scooter left on track (May 29, 2019) Two thieves on scooters rob victim of purse in D.C.

  8. So Maryland is going to spend $50 million just to plan and design renovations? When the planning and designing are finished, I wonder what the price tag of actual construction would be and will Maryland taxpayers approve coughing up that kind of expenditure when there are many other issues that need to be addressed.

    The 2019 Washington Area Travelers Advisory

    The vote was likely influenced by the Federal Transit Administration's (FTA) threat to withhold $1.6B in federal funds if Metro voted to run trains later into the night. After the spate of accidents on the Metro line, the U.S. Department of Transportation in 2015 assigned the FTA " to assume temporary and direct safety oversight of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) Metrorail system." It was the January 2015 electrical fire in the tunnel and resulting death that triggered the U.S. DOT to take action. WMATA's excuse for allowing the electrical system to deteriorate so badly was that there wasn't enough "down-time" to adequately inspect the system before the next morning's service started. For WMATA to then consider reducing the down-time even MORE by running the evening trains later into the early morning hours likely caused the FTA to issue the threat.

    I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    Currently the edit window is ~5 minutes, then it gets locked. Matt is looking at whether there is interest in extending the edit window. https://board.otakon.com/index.php?showtopic=26779

    I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    It sounds to me like the address of your friend that you had the badge mailed to is incorrect. Checking that the address is correct isn't going to help much if YOU have the address incorrectly recorded.

    I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    It's a highly protected secret. Thursday is probably not possible, but for Friday... the sheet of paper that came with your badge explains how to pick up your swag bag. To wit:

    I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    I see. Our letter carrier spends many days stopped at our mailboxes and chatting on his cell rather than delivering mail, so... I could see him playing free and easy with the rules.

    I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    Hmm... received my tracking number yesterday and tracking indicated that it would be delivered today. Problem was that there would be no one home today to sign for it so I expected to go pick it up from the Post Office on Monday. When I got home this evening, the badge was waiting for me in my mailbox. Perhaps they are allowed to leave "signature required" items in mailboxes that require a key to access and not need a signature? My mailbox needs a key to get into.
