General Convention Discussion / Carpooling
« on: May 13, 2014, 07:23:32 PM »
I searched for a carpooling thread, matching drivers with riders.  Maybe I'm blind, but I couldn't find one.  So now here it is.  I you have a car and are looking for people to share the cost of gas, or if you are carless, and need a ride, post on here.  What you need:

About You:
I, for one, am not about to ride with anyone named Slasher McBloodknife.

What city you are in.  Because it doesn't do you much good to pair up with a driver from LA if you are from Yreka.  :D

Because people have schedules, and there own life. Unreasonable of them, I suppose, but there it is.   ::)

For Drivers Ammount of Space:
I don't know about you, but I don't want to be the sixth person stuffed in a Volkswagon Beetle.

Special issues.  Maybe you just have to eat Limburger cheese and sit in the suicide seat.

General Convention Discussion / Day 0: Worth It?
« on: January 28, 2014, 07:20:42 PM »
This will be my second time coming to Fanime, and my second con.  Last time I wanted to come to day 0, but several other members of the group I was a part of couldn't make it, so we didn't get there till Friday afternoon.  This year it looks like I will be going solo, (although I am hoping to find some people to share my car with, and hopefully some roommates.) I am about a 3.5-4 hour drive north, and I was wondering if it would be worth it to come down for Day 0.  I'm still very inexperienced.

Perceived Potential Cons:
Have to pay for an additional day at the hotel
Possibly harder to find people to carpool with
Possibly harder to find roomates

Possible Pros:
Possibly shorter lines
Possibly less traffic
Day 0 swap meet
Other events

I could be missing other items on both sides.  So what do you think?  Do/would you go to Day 0, and why/why not?

General Convention Discussion / Dinner for the Con
« on: May 19, 2013, 03:54:32 PM »
So I was doing some dishes (blargh :P) and I had an idea. If I bring a crockpot, a frozen chub of hamburger or a couple frozen chicken breasts, etc, each night before bed or morning after breakfast I can throw in some meat, half an onion, 1-2 potatoes or some rice, a carrot, a stalk of celery and/or some broccoli, broth, salt, pepper, garlic etc, and by the time I get back to the hotel from the con I have some nice hot soup for dinner. After dinner clean and reset. Has anyone tried this? Any thoughts? I was thinking I should bring the small crockpot, because I don't want a ton of uneaten leftovers.

General Convention Discussion / My Con Schedule
« on: May 17, 2013, 09:32:01 PM »
I don't know about you, I guess I'm a little bit of a control freak. This is going to be my first con ever, and I want to make sure it goes as well as it possibly could. When I read people suggestions for a good con experience, one thing I heard often was to get a schedule beforehand, and plan out everything you are going to do. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find a simple Fanime schedule, so I started making one. So far, all it has is the panels on it. I'll try to add the rest on tomorrow. In the mean time, anyone who is in the same boat is free to make use of it. Disclaimer: I'm not certain I've got the midnight panels right. I can't figure out how to attach the
Exel document, and I'm too tired to fight it at the moment so this will have to do till tomorrow.

Mod edit: changed thread title, did not want people to get confused...

Are you a Tremendous Swell, your pockets never to let, able to buy an Abby? Are you perhaps a Corinthian, a Nonesuch, or a Nonperiel, drinking Blue Ruin at the Daffy Club, putting on the gloves at Jackson's Saloon, ridding Sudden Death on the roads, and a bruising rider to hound, but with a neat, light hand? Or are you instead a Tulip? People call you a Twiddlepoop and a Counter Coxcomb, but you know better. You know you are the veritable Pink of the Ton.

Perhaps you trod a darker path. Perhaps you are are a Greek, or a Captain Sharp, or on the dub lay, always looking for a cove as would bleed very freely. Perhaps you're a Free Trader, one of the Gentlemen, and the Beadle can't touch you. Perhaps you've worked your way up to the supposed romantce and adventure of the High Toby, and have found it means long, wet nights, bad food, friends who might just cry rope on you for a few yellow boys, and small and uncertain rewards. Whatever the case, you've got a fastener after you, and perhaps the Runners have your description.  You know that one of these days, you'll end up on the Nubbing Cheat.

The way a person talks tells a lot about them, and the Steam Age and just before had some of the most interesting and prolific slang (or cant, as they would say,) in English history. I think this would make a very interesting panel for Clockwork Alchemy. How would YOUR character talk? It's my first con, so I probably shouldn't be making suggestions, but I do think it would be a lot of fun.
