Nice fots of the Convention.

I have to say I'm pleased to see that Terry has trimmed the beard a bit.

Last interview I saw him on (assisted suicide - it's posted on here somewhere) he was beginning to resemble........ err..... I know I'm not supposed to mention the books or films on here.... but.... Dumbledore!

I can understand where Mrs Chris is coming from! (so to speak!!).

In the words of Cleveland from Family Guy........... "NASTY".

Nice photos. :P

Very interesting - explains why you know so much about Japan.

Why were your jokes and stories considered to be a threat to national security? :lol:

Do you mean why was my original website blocked by China? Well... the actual reason was that I hosted it with yahoo.com and they use dynamic IP addresses for their websites. China automatically blocks websites with dynamic IP addresses because it's hard for them to keep track of which website is which.

I've just loaded my photo's on to my pc they are not that good too dark and some a bit shakey I was sitting right at the back with some friends so the distance makes them grainy with the zoom on so I will be able to post just a few when I get around to setting up an online jobby wossit.

Great pictures kakaze! Sorry we didn't get to meet there. The pictures I tried to take of the events in the ballroom all came out too dark and/or fuzzy.

It would be great if there's another UScon! Next time I'll make sure I get there before things start. :wink:

WWDug, I don't think you got to see me Sunday night. I had a record almost 3 glasses of wine! :lol: It's a wonder I didn't doze off. It was so great to see you. Wish we'd had more time to visit.

I met Exp. the Rat when he was demonstrating how to play Thud in the game room.

By the way, we should all congradulate, or applaud, Exp. the Rat on his auction winning bid of $1,250 for an early copy of Unseen Academicals!

Either he really likes reading Mr. Pratchett's books, or he's really worried about alzhimers!

Someone else bought a second copy of this book for $1,500 at the official auction, but I didn't attend so I don't know who it was.
