Tempting. I was a supporter last MAG but never got any of the goodies for it. Not sure if it's worth paying the extra for again.

I'll certainly debate doing MAG again if I can.

I was serious about Mag 8 and then I totaled my car. That sucked.

I don't remember what happened with Mag 9. I think it was a lack of money.

I will go to Mag X if I can coerce my friends to split a room with me which is possible.

Shut up we know you're not coming to MAGFest ever, Luke.

Is this supposed to be taken condescendingly or jokingly? I can't tell. I know a flake a lot on this but I can't help that.

I am totally set on going, though I wont have any people from around here to go with so I'll have to split a room with some OCR people it looks like. Would prefer people I've at least talked to a bit on IRC or whatnot, but hopefully I'll figure something out.

So exciting.

A gingerly goad because I REALLY want you to actually come one of these times because, I mean...jamspace. Last time we jammed was at Taucer's in '09! I'm crossing my fingers that you can coerce your friends this time.
