RETURN to @DragonCon! (and kicking off #DragonCon 2013)

I’ve been on the Internet a long time.  As a result of my text driven computer programming days, I still see certain characters as silly things in that part of my brain the stays perpetually twelve years old.  For example, an asterisk looks like an asshole.  Check it out: See...

This is not my after #DragonCon blog post. It is, though…

A post about something I did because of Dragon*Con.  I spent last night doing a clean install of the OS/Apps on my Samsung Galaxy S (Epic 4G) phone.  During the con, the damn thing would stall – crash the occasional app – take forever to load. In short, it started...

Another mistake from Froggy’s Photos at #DragonCon goes viral. 3

Another mistake from Froggy’s Photos at #DragonCon goes viral.

I paid $120 at this year’s Dragon*Con to get my photo taken with the guys from Quantum Leap.  Why did I spend that much?  First, you should know that the photo package offered three things: An 8×10 photo to be picked up at the show. Another 8×10 photo to be...

Registration. I mean, COME ON Dragon*Con. Seriously. There are dozens of blogs, Livejournal posts, forum discussions and websites all preaching the reasons why Dragon*Con’s registration sucks.  Instead of some epic post going on and on forever – I prefer to just illustrate the problem and solution using math. <math geekiness>...

My #DragonCon 2010 Report, Part 2 of 3: The Bad
