One would think I'd be able to finally attend, since it's only an hour away from my US address. Guess again, I'm still stuck in Europe, with no time off from work or funds to speak of! :sad:

Yes! The last & only time it was here in the DFW area, I was far away in grad school, so I couldn't attend.

If I don't need hotel tickets, does that mean I can only buy general admission tickets for only Saturday & Sunday?

No no friend, you will be able to purchase a Primus package and experience everything Botcon has to offer. The hotel is only set up first for the convenience of the ou-of-towners.

Is this where I'm supposed to pour on the butt-hurt and cry about my "credit" because my BotCon post was one minute earlier? :lol: "Credit" is pretty valuable stuff, after all! :roll:

So are the details of the set very soon to follow? Last year that info came just over 4 months before the event. We're only like a week or two away from that same time frame with it being so early this year...
