Hello to new readers pencat and umadoshi!

State of the 'Song
The new CPAP, after being silent all con, ROARED last night. So no sleep. But I missed some work last week due to ickies, so I haul my tired sore coughing self in.

I am terribly intimidated by even beginning to write about StrowlerCon, because it was too much awesome to possibly be contained or described. I will have to give it a shot later if I'm not unconscious.

In the meantime, I'm pleased to announce that cluegirl and I will be co-chairs of next year's StrowlerCon, which will not be on the same weekend as this one. Join strowlercon to keep up to date, and post your con reports and pics there! Remember to tag your pics on Flickr "strowlercon"!

We have some exciting improvements in store, and we learned a lot, and we shall talk about that when conscious.

But basically: OMG that totally worked. In ways we hadn't even anticipated. And just like those of us on the train trip with s00j became circus family, we at StrowlerCon became strowler family. Unprecedented and gorgeous.

Only one person at a time can use the internet here right now. Because we don't have a non-Verizon wireless router. So we're on direct-connection instead of wifi. So between that and the change in panel length making there be about half as many panel slots, it takes about an hour to put a single panel in place. Have asked Head of Programming for a hand, because that does not work.

Link Soup
My only link for you today (I've been kinda busy) is the link to all of the concerts. Go forth and rock out. Play spot-the-'song and spot-the-Elayna!

Work, sleep, Diesel. (EDIT: Aches may be exhaustion - but conversation leads me to consider the possibility that they may be con crud. Rest is the better part of valor, and thus, no Diesel.)

This just reminds me to take a lot of network cable and a hub to conventions.

Oh, re: the router? No, that's in my house. We just switched providers.

Congratulations--and condolences--on your Chairship.

(And hey--if it's a different weekend next year, I might be able to actually go!)

Hello! ^_^

I watched Kellianna and Tricky Pixie live on Saturday. I was sad I couldn't be there, because it totally rocked and it looked like it was even better in person.

Your bit with Lee was amazing! You two had great chemistry.

Yaythanks! I haven't watched yet. Lee and I had never performed together before (and this was my first suspension ever), so I'm so relieved it worked!

I thought it worked quite well.
Lee seemed to think so too. (We went out for dinner in Chinatown on our way to our respective buses.)

Yay. <3

Is there a link to the Saturday night session? There seems to have been general confusion about the URLs for recorded versus live streams.
(I wondered if it might have been 'cos there was no "tips box" on the page we got for the Friday night recording like there was for the live site, and maybe they were trying to work out how to provide that?)

Yeah, I'm a little confused about the streams as well. Is there a definitive link anywhere? (or set of links?)

Feel free! :)

Re planning for next year, feel free to ping me if you want someone with tech experience to accompany you while venue-shopping. I'm probably not available to TD next year, since I'm chairing this other little con next August, but I'll cheerfully give input on the venue-selection part.

Thank you so much! I will *definitely* take you up on that, with much gratitude.
