...and see if he notices the difference!

Today, no. For various reasons I got a little less than four hours of sleep last night, which is Not Good, especially since I have a registration meeting tonight. The badges are closer to completion now that tokenfanboy has come through and saved half my ass; the other half I need to do myself by finishing the tweaks to the database and getting the badges run by Monday. I can then get them laminated, cut, drilled and sorted by Thursday morning even if I have to do the sorting myself, which hopefully should not be necessary. Patrick and tatsmaru are doing the guest and sponsor badges on photo paper with their color inkjet printer, which should make those badges look super cool & extra shiny.

So unless something horrible happens with the templates, we should have all this ready by Monday for the final steps in processing. Meanwhile, the e-mails continue to dribble in, convincing me that anime fandom has a real problem with the immediate gratification thing. SHOW SOME GODDAMN PATIENCE, YOU FUCKTARDS!

....but, but I sent my check in 2 hours ago...do you have my check yet? Cause I haven't gotten an orange card and my friend Bob said that if I don't have an orange card I can't get in, and if I can't get in I'll just DIE. Also, I don't have an ID, can I bring in this piece of paper that has my name and birthday that my dog pissed on?

Let me know if you need anything more done to the templates. It sounded like over the phone that everyhing was working as we expected it to, but you never know for sure until things are all done. Amusingly enough, I do actually work with someone with the last name Murphy.

It's at times like this that I ponder Bay's Corollary to Murphy's Law:
Whatever can go wrong already has, and we just don't know about it yet.
Spoken like a true intel officer.

The larger the group of people the smaller the collective attention span.

My sympathies.

Thanks. Two years of doing this part-time while drunkenphlower and danae were in charge allowed me to forget just how hard and badly this job sucks. Most of our membership are actually quite cool and wonderful people, but that other 1%....AAAARRRRGGGGH.

Apropos of nothing other than your msg was tagged "AD", I was wondering...

Are you ever going to get around to commenting that AD-2006 photo-album I showed you and forwarding the link to people who might want to know about it?

Any chance you could get a-round-tuit before AD-2007??

And yes, yes, yes... I really do understand that you're already busier than a quadriplegic wallpaper-hanger in a typhoon ... and the "real storm" is just about to hit... And I'm not going to be TOO surprised if it doesn't happen until "later"...

I'm just "askin"... :)

I thought I'd already done that, but in my copious free time this weekend...oh, wait, you already have the link posted.
I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE.

You know, this last chunk of database wrangling and badge printing is the hard part. Dealing with 2900 crazed otaku trying to get badges, that's the easy part. I can do that.

Including the link to make it easier for you to look at the pictures may -OR- may-not mean that "the right people" will notice the link and pass it on to others who might want to know...

I'll be looking forward to reading your comments in the album (as I have no clue who 70% of the people are in those pictures)...

Thanks.

Oh, yeah. That. I'll send you the database tonight or tomorrow so you can print the relevant badges and numbers on them.

Glad to hear you guys got your orange cards. At least part of this process is working. :S
