I'm going thursday.

2 days, 14 hours left.  Woot!
Wow, 1 day isn't too too much time to find and post replies to these type of issues...

Personally, the first thing I will do when I pick up my schedule is to take the staple out.  Its easier to look at different pages (especially double sided ones) when I can flip them around without any hassle.  It also makes it easier to only get one page instead of a whole "packet" for the weekend if I pick up another for the day, since fanime tends to have updated schedules, or some people lose schedules and pick up other ones - the whole weekend isn't needed, just the single day.  I guess this could also apply for those one-day pass con-goers.  One day would be needed; the other 3 days would be thrown away.  Or left on the table.  IMHO, unstapled papers would not only save papers, but staples too.

omg this is how cheap I am...

Last year, I tried to spend $300 at fanime (not including hotel).  I think I got up a little over $100...

I always find it amusing how everyone gets into the conflict of buying weapons like swords and what not in the dealers room, but then once they go outside, they aren't allowed to carry it around with them, because it is a weapon, and for the not dangerous ones, or almost realistic looking ones, they have to get it tagged or whatever by con-ops.  I wonder, what do people do, if they are only at the con for one day, have no room, or dont know anyone with a room, and got to the con via public transportation?  If I were to just buy a $150 sword, I would not want to put it down anywhere.

this company is fairly new in doing the free internet thing...Do you think it will work in the sjcc? or at least around the outside?
