Don't think I'll get around to these, but should really. Plus posting on Friday means no-one will see this anyway.

  • Conrunner
    • Never seen a better populated programme stream :) Lots of notes.

  • Stopping a fight
    • Just a slice of life post describing the 30 minutes or so I spent after I came out of a late night tube into blazing row.

  • SFX weekender
    • +New 2 day convention!
    • - ... on Friday and Saturday, with no Sunday programme.

    • +Shed loads of authors
    • -... on a small stage at the back of a noisy pub, and no clue in programme if it was a reading, interview, talk, Q&A, or Ukulele session.

    • +Hanging with friends
    • -... who I didn't seem to see a lot of on Friday.

    • +Dead cheap as these things go!
    • ... but then the accommodation was mouldy stained and frayed.

    • +Went for a swin in the pool (never managed get round to at a con before)
    • -... at noon, as it wasn't open in the morning.

    • etc. Essentially there were lots of little things wrong, but I think the killer is state of the accommodation. Just see what others have said.

  • Good Customer Service - I always mention the bad stuff, so should do the good too.
    • Echo Bazzar A turn based RPG text adventure (with log in via twitter). I emailed them to claim responsability for a bug fix they rolled out. They said they'd spotted it anyway, but still gave me a bug hunter's prize.

    • I emailed the manufacturers of Killer Bunnies to say that one of my cards was damaged in the packaging, and they sent me a free replacement, and a bonus playable card that they must have given out at a convention or something :)

That is interesting. I have been disappointed with the program for the last few years of convention going.

I have seen that a few times at Novacon and other conventions where they have this "90 minute + break" schedule.

The SFX Weekender looks like it was hoot, despite the location (which I remember 'fondly' from Gencons in the 90s).
