Yeah, one more photo dump day. I thought I was going to have some time and then work had issues. Back to Anthrohio and its last day in its traditional Holiday Inn!


Making good progress tucking the convention away and I didn't get actual photographic proof but bunny_hugger and I did our share in helping. Really.


And it's all but done; all we need is someone to pack up the last guy from the board of directors there.


On the left, Room 269: the suite that for basically all of Morphicon had been the designated room for species SIGs. Also that nobody could ever find because it's the one door in the whole hotel without a number on it. But that's all right; the suite can also be entered by Room 267, which has got a number on it, and was never listed as the location for some reason. This is a little something for we who were always frustrated that nobody could find our Species SIGs.


The final state of the message board, left panel.

And the table in front with flyers for other conventions and for SpinDizzy Muck and artists and vendors and all sorts of stuff.

Trivia: Voltaire, in 1738, appears to have been the first person to write of Kepler's ``Laws'' of Planetary Motion. Source: The Clockwork Universe: Isaac Newton, the Royal Society, and the Birth of the Modern World, Edward Dolnick.

Currently Reading: The Friendly Orange Glow: The Untold Story of the PLATO System and the Dawn of Cyberculture, Brian Dear. Delighted to run across talk of Dungeon in the text and I'm only sad it's not a bigger part of a chapter about the games they wrote.
