AetherKnight: It was like that. For a whole weekend. :-/
Yes i'm talking Drakcon, two days of rather poorly organised living events with some people there to talk to and make sure it wasn't totally shite.
Thankfully a smattering of people did make it bareable, so thanks to Kerry, Aetherknight, Dave, Thumper and Duncan.
Maybe more on this but trying to commit this event to the part of my brain that forgets things
