The final Big Con Schedule Poster, with amendments, particularly the addition of bunny_hugger's events (at the bottom). Also added: a ``Love The Skin You're In'' panel, a comedy show, and something else was changed to a charity ``Whose Lion Is It Anyway''.

Trivia: The note Abraham Lincoln wrote in November 1863 specifying the starting point for the Union Pacific Railroad (``the western boundary of Iowa as lies between the North and South boundaries of the United States township, within which the City of Omaha is situated'') was photographed in 1874 to serve as evidence in court in a lawsuit over the railroad's eastern terminus.

Yeah, when Apple Of The 80s is making more and more consistently good product-placement, marketing, and price-point decisions than you are you're in a lot of trouble.
