I'm finishing as much of my project tonight as possible. It's likely that I'll be doing some last minute work on it, but hey.

And I'm hoping that someone beside myself is bringing a pair of wire-cutters. Cause the same thing isn't happening this year.

Friday night, if you guys are doing last minute work on the schedule, that involves me, call my cell. I'd like it if you called about 7 or 8pm (Eastern). As I told Sponge, I'll likely be getting to the hotel kinda late, like 2am.

I was hoping to finish my nesp by tonight but doesnt look like it since I'm getting cross-talk on my controller and it looks like I just totally screwed up the case trying to spray paint it, but its just a radio shack project box that's too deep anyways so guess I can just go buy a new one and work on the case there haha

Anybody have a spare heat sink? Every radio shack in my area is somehow completely out of them

I have some spare consoles too I can bring up, mostly n64's, reg NES and reg SNES) that I can trade away for show goodies (hopefully someone is selling wonderswans)

cross posting this in the other thread too

I am pumped to be the guy with 13 posts who only listens to the podcasts that will be there, trying to make awkward conversation. 8)

Ha! It's not like that at all. You'd think it'd all be awkward, but it's the contrary.

I saw comments along those lines in last year's thread. In any case, MGC should be awesome, even on its own merits. Hanging out with Benheckers is a nice bonus :P

I've never listened to the podcasts. Are they worth subscribing to?

If it's anything like last year's (though I can only see this year's being better), it'll be packed with fun. :)
