    ROFL at United. I booked my tickets last week using Southwest and the total came to less than half of United's price (after the discount).

    Ridiculous.

    Yeah but with United you might become a star after they drag you physically out of your seat and throw you off the plane because they want your seat for an employee.

    I don't care about that, I just want the millions that guy got as settlement ;)  And of course, United ended their practice of allowing one bag/one carry on not long after.
    Not sure which one's worse, yesterday I read about a Delta passenger forced to sit on an uncleaned seat (we are talking about human feces i.e. biohazard).

    There are only 3 airlines I'll use in Grand Old Murica:
    1. Southwest.
    2. Jetblue.
    3. Virgin.

    The rest can go to hell.

    Haha! True true. I guess lately as in "the last ten years or more" kind of way. And I know about the crappy OC driving. I drive to Cape and Cowls in Fountain Valley a lot and I got a friend further into the hornet's nest. In fact, I'll be going there tomorrow at noonish so wish me luck.

    TFcon should be fun though.

    4 guest announcements in 4 days, that's got to be a record.

    I've never been to a tfcon before. How do autographs work? Are they free with admission, or do you pay per signature? I know at Botcon that some were free, and some were charged. tIA!

    guests charge for autographs at tfcon. It's typically 25 per signature but could be more.

    Need to make a correction. If anyone wants to do a room share its 84.50 per night so adjust accordingly.
    So sorry for the miscalculation. I have the room which has two double beds from thurs the 14th to mon the 18th.

    Great lineup so far. I really hope to be able to make this. I really wish that they could get Corey Burton for this somehow, although it seems he has no interest in doing conventions. It'd also be really nice (and expensive) to get Welker to make another appearance. I have a few more things I need signed by him.
