I have a game called Geek Battle, which is a good source of SciFi and technology trivia. I wonder how the DrupalCon folks collect their questions...

I will be there! I'm also

I can't afford to attend such things unless I'm volunteering to work on them. RMS may be surprised to see me here if he shows up early for FossettCon. It's been a few years since we last ran into each other.

I can help with a t-shirt design and signage

Would we want to incorporate any FossettCon into the designs?

I say sure. No reason not to!

I4 or 417?

DamienMcKenna's picture

Which would be the best way of getting there from Sanford - pop over to I4 or take 417?

I'd probably just let Google

alexdmccabe's picture

I'd probably just let Google navigate you there... it's saying take 417 down to 408, 408 to I4, I4 the rest of the way.

You can take 417 down to 528 but Google says that's a tiny bit (2 minutes) slower. Or 417 all the way down to 535, which gets you pretty much to the door.

Thanks. Is either direction better from the POV of known traffic problems at that time of evening?

I4 has bad rush hour traffic

alexdmccabe's picture

I4 has bad rush hour traffic but by 7-8 PM I think it should be cleared up.

Google Maps

tl;dr Google says no, not really.

Damien: You can't attend

potential t-shirt design

drupal8shirt.png in our dropbox.
If it looks ok I'll try to get it printed up. I'm not sure who Natalie was using for our shirts before.

Sizes, amounts and funding suggestions?

Thanks Dorothy! I don't have

I don't have our Dropbox synced up (and am almost out of disk space). Can you please post a link to the file?

Just tuned into this. Been buried in work. I'm going to try and be there. Anyone need a ride or interested in car pooling? Let me know.

I had planned to come

acmaintainer's picture

...Until the date changed to Thursday. Got a paid gig that night. D'mit. Otherwise I would have been happy to carpool with you. I am very sad.

Well dang it.
