Garian is PLAYER #2, Paul (One of the top guys of MAG) is STAFF #3.

That someone else is Shael Riley

Also shawnphase

You took a picture of the prosti-tots.

Yeah, sorry about all that. I'm terrible with names and faces...

Also, thanks for the audio, Kroze. As I said during the set, Shael Riley is a regular Scatman :smile:

It is my hope that they do not hold M7 a day after New Year's 09. Sorry, but I, and a lot of others so far, seem to agree that it's a bad idea. Truthfully, if it were the week, or two weeks after, or better yet, at the end of January after everyone has had at least a little chance for regaining their money spent on christmas, I think it would work out a lot better.

But that's an opinion. I loved going to MAGFest for the first time, and I really want to go next year, but I won't if it's right after New Year's.

If you check the MAGFest forums, and read what Brendan said, it pretty much comes down to either having it Jan 1-4, or not having it at all.

But then you're asking everyone that attends school or college (a good bit of the people that are MAG attendees), to skip school / classes (Wednesday,) Thursday and Friday.

Jimmy, I understand that, but like I said to Dyne, it's down to Jan 1-4, or not at all.

The downside of getting a new hotel is that you can't negotiate prices too well. Also, being with the same hotel a couple times allows the negotiation of "hidden" fees such as parking, so people that had the room reserved in their names doesn't get smacked with a parking fee, especially when most everyone else that was in the room had already left.

Stuff like that can be a bitch, I'm sure, but to me it doesn't sound like enough of a reason to stay with the same hotel. I think that if this hotel can't work out a date that's reasonably convenient for the majority of people who would like to attend, then we should switch hotels. That's why we plan it now... so we have enough time to do so.

For that matter, I don't know why we have it in places like the Hilton. I think people wouldn't mind staying in a two or three star hotel if they understood the money they'd have to spend otherwise.

Find a two- or three-star hotel with the same square footage and rooming capabilities, then talk to Brendan. The problem is that those don't exist. two- and three-star hotels historically don't have ballrooms where we can set up our console room.
