  1. Man, I was idly wondering about Harborplace a month ago. That video is depressing. So much different from when I first went there. šŸ˜¢
  2. For the record, this is the T-shirt in question: As I've said before on this forum, it's my favorite shirt I never wear.
  3. I have all the shirts, though some are retired due to age and/or condition. (My 2017 shirt for some reason has a bunch of small holes in it, and I know I didn't get acid on it at work.) I still have the old Otakon shoulder(?) bag. Though mine is unique because the zipper on it is upside down. I also have several of the early pins (One of the earliest ones - the one w/ the bunny girl that reminds me of the Daicon IV opening, is darker than I originally recall. Whether that's 'patina', age, or just how it originally looked I can't recall.), and the 3 postcards they put out when Otakon had
  4. I swear I was just wondering if they were still open not 3 days ago. Now I know, but I'm not surprised. It was always fun to spend a bit of time looking around there on the Thursday before the con, picking up something new to read. Also, I did like how they had the fish from the aquarium displayed in there. Man, is there anything still around in Harborplace? There wasn't a lot there in the final years in Baltimore, probably less now.
  5. I have to say, after a few hiccups it seemed to go pretty well overall. (Though the sound on at least one panel was...not good.) The panel mix was decent (which is what I really go for at the con), but the 30 minute limit felt kind of odd when I'm used to 45 minute - 1 hour panels. The biggest advantage was switching to another panel took a few seconds instead of schlepping across the WEWCC. This is the 1st time I can remember actually attending the opening and closing ceremonies. I'm usually at a panel for the former and on the way home for the latter. I bought a couple of tshirts a
  6. First of all, thanks to Otakon for doing this. It sucks that we can't be there together physically, but we are together in spirit. That being said, the schedule is here. Initial impressions: - I might actually catch a little bit of the opening ceremonies this year. I've been going since 1994 but don't think I've ever seen them, since I can't be in multiple places at once. Ditto Otaku no Video - haven't watched it this century IIRC. - MAT3K is back again! Haven't missed one yet. I wonder what they'll do this year. - Even now, with all this tech, I might still miss panel
  7. It was definitely a unique experience for me this time. Between 8:55 and 9:13 the list of available hotels kept jumping between a low of 8 and a high of (I think) 11 that changed every time I refreshed the page (cough*every few seconds*cough). I was already in the system (having booked originally at the Renaissance, then the Hampton when it became available), so I just had to click on the previously entered data to complete the process. (Whether that made a difference in booking speed, I can't say.) I was lucky after the fact, as less than 5 minutes after I got the confirmation, my boss c
