Traveling to PAX Today

August 28, 2008 -

Sorry for the lack of stories today... Had an early flight to PAX, including a mid-day change of planes in Detroit.

I'm in the cab at the Seattle Airport, and will get some GP goodness posted a little later...

Hey Dennis, if you come back through Detroit again, here's what you need to do:

Find the monorail.  Go to McDonalds.  Get some burgers, nuggets, whatever.  Go to monorail, ride back and forth while waiting for your flight.  A friend of mine did this and pretty much watched human interaction at its finest for three hours when our flight was delayed once.

Look for the guy wearing the purple dinner jacket and black hat with a bunch of "hello my name is" stickers :D I'll buy you a drink :D

Re: Traveling to PAX Today

Lucky. I wanted to go to PAX. :(

Stop by the Flying Lab booth and say hi to the guy dressed as the British Naval officer. :)

Re: Traveling to PAX Today

I was wondering how long it would take you.

Re: Traveling to PAX Today

Have fun. Let's hope PAX won't be the disappointment that E3 was.

Re: Traveling to PAX Today

I don't think anything could have been more of a disappointment than was E3 was this year.

Re: Traveling to PAX Today

We love you enough that it's okay, haha.  I had to flush my computer and reinstall my OS.  So I am still in the process of reinstalling all of my software...  (FTP, Firefox, web/game dev stuff, games...)

My freakin ethernet wasn't recogized by my OS, so I had to go online with my girlfriend's computer and download the driver...  it still wont play sound yet...  This computer is nearing it's end as a primary machine after 5 years and minor upgrades (more RAM, but thats it)...  Pretty damn good for a PC if you ask me.  I have only seen Macs last longer...  One at my work is 8 years old, no upgrades...

Time to build a computer...  NewEgg, here I come!

Anyways, have fun man, let us know of your travels.  In a year or 2 I'll prolly see you there.

SleakerBut where have all the Ethics gone?08/21/2014 - 9:08am
Sleaker@EZK - one of the bigger things is that since Mojang has owned Bukkit for 2 years now, people contributing to the project have basically been doing work for them pro-bono. On top of never formalizing support. They hid the fact probably to prevent support08/21/2014 - 9:07am
SleakerIf you've played on a server with mods/plugins, you've almost for sure played on a Bukkit-based server.08/21/2014 - 8:56am
SleakerHere's Bukkit's explanation attempt at shutting down due to EULA changes: http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/bukkit-its-time-to-say.305106/08/21/2014 - 8:55am
SleakerEZK - it's the largest server mod for MC, in actuality without it minecraft for sure would not have been as popular (#1 game now).08/21/2014 - 8:54am
SleakerTo the point that it seems they have completely lost what it means to be for-community, and having transparency. Along with dumping restrictive EULA's onto people.08/21/2014 - 8:53am
E. Zachary KnightWhat is Bukkit and why should I care?08/21/2014 - 8:53am
SleakerMinecraft community exploded again today. Apparently Mojang owns all of Bukkit, and never put out a statement saying as such 2 years ago when they acquired them. I have to say, their transition from indie has been rough.08/21/2014 - 8:52am
