    I never did make it out of the waiting room but still got a 4 day thanks to a buying group that I'm in.

    As for the usual technical difficulties, the process of entering your reg code took nearly 10 minutes for many in my group. I even had the page stop loading twice before 9 am and had to re-enter code to log in.

    Glad you made it, FB.

    Glad to hear you got your pass, Figgy B.

    Steve just asked me if I was going so we could do the press reg after missing last year, and I had to tell him that I honestly don't know if I want to go next year. Part of me feels like conventions have gotten too much of a crush, too expensive and too many people and too much bother. But part of me had a great time at some of the cons of the last 8 years. I am gonna re-reg my press account, assuming they even take me - they've been more and more picky - and leave my options open.

    But D23 Expo may have been it for me, that may have been the last one, I'm not even sure I could do SDCC anymore without handicap access due to my psoriatic arthritis, and I really REALLY don't want to use handicap access, it doesn't feel right to use that.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    Kylo Ren - came from Space Brooklyn, although he moved to Space Williamsburg before it was trendy.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    I'm saddened to learn that, JT. We've had some fun times at cons. Will you be going to Wonder Con this spring?

    "Maybe", I simply forgot it existed this last Easter weekend until it was too late, so I'll need to be reminded. It also depends on if I get press credentials approved for SDCC, as they automatically come with Wondercon press credentials.

    Open registration sold out in less than an hour this morning and I was not successful in trying to get preview night. In fact, amongst the people that I normally coordinate with for SDCC badge purchasing, we weren't very successful at all although most like me already had 4 days and were just looking to upgrade.

    So with that being said, any help for PN will be greatly appreciated!

    A friend of mine may not make it to preview night, but has the full 5-day badge paid for. I will ask him for you. In fact, he may only be there Friday and Saturday.

    Oh geez, that's awful. I hear this stuff and feel so frustrated with SDCC, but I guess that's what Wondercon is for.
