    It looks like you guys are sorted for flights and accomodatrion - well done.  I was lucky enough to win a ticket to MIX and am looking at flights and Accomodation 'on the cheap'. 

    FYI The Excalibur hotel can be had from around $30 a night (and there is a monorail link to the Mandalay). 

    I'm trying to source a cheap flight but it's not looking good! (I think its half term week).

     

    Also waiting to see if my wife gets made redundant this week which would make it a no go.

     

    Fingers crossed, if I make it we will have to sort out a Niner meetup!

    We should get T-Shirts : "I went to Mix11 and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt (and free flights, and free hotels and free entry to the conference)"

    @Richard.Hein: I'm slightly stunned.   I think my passport has lapsed!  Going to see if I can get one fast-tracked ...

    You can get them done in a day, by going to London. You have to arrange it first though.

    Thanks.

    I think the Post Office can get one done in a fortnight -- otherwise I can go to the Liverpool Offices for same-day processing (by appointment).

    Just saw this today. I'm most likely going to MIX11 organized as press so they would essentially have a spare spot.

     

    I've emailed Laura informing her of this and hopefully they can send one extra deserving person too.

    @Bas: Many thanks to Jeff, Charles, Dan and the team for proving once more that you really do listen and like to disprove the "it will never happen" brigade.

     

    Enjoy the trip, Vegas and Mix of course!

    I was planning on going to Vegas for a week during mix and taking the wife to experience the lovely world of Las Vegas but would be in the middle of a 2 month contract so decided against it in the end which is a shame.

    My application for visa extension has been submitted. Now I've just got to hope they process it in time for me to be able to go to Vegas.

    @Sven Groot:Next year, perhaps the Niney's need to be voted on earlier so it doesn't put people in a bind.

    @kettch:  It's far less of a bind now that they are paying for the flight and hotel as well as the conference pass. 

    It sounds like most of us have slacked on keeping our passports up to date, myself included!  I'm going to get my passport photos today.  It's supposed to take about a week, but could take a month.  I still have time, but I had better get it done, ASAP!  This will be the first trip to the US where I've had to have one, since the new rules came into place.

    @Richard.Hein: Yup, photos after work (in about 15 minutes, hopefully) and passport application filling tonight for a sprint to the Post Office tomorrow.

    Also need to find what flights are available ... thankfully I think Manchester does direct to Las Vegas flights so hopefully I can figure that all out tonight as well.
