So no late night wandering around, trips up to the Con Suite on 69 or the parties on 68. Also I need to have an afternoon nap to help keep my old edema down in my legs. And no getting into more optimal positions for taking pictures.
But I AM here. I AM taking pictures with the D1H and the D100. So I AM damned glad to be here and seeing some of y'all.
And I will complete my six panels plus a reading. And post pictures later. And I knew I had a Michigan story from way back -- so old it's never been sent out. I found it listed on a file of story titles. Alas no Concierge on my PC. And no back up file upstairs with it on it. The story lives on a number of hard drives of machines that either don't boot or haven't been booted in years. Probably on an old 10 GB external hard drive, but it takes a weird driver. And I need to find a copy of that. Or in the downstairs office there should be a 3½" FDD drive -- but I haven't been downstairs in over a year.
So, there's nothing to it but rewrite it from scratch. No pressure. I started at around 10:30pm Thursday night, had a 90-95% version by 2am, revised it at 10am, and read it to Detcon at noon.
The audience of seven liked it.
Gotta love deadlines.
