    Have fun guys. I have school, cannot go. Also I am too much a MS fanboy to attend. Blushing Would really love to attend though, in LA which is not too far from me.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    And of course as nominees we'll get VIP passes, right?  I mean for the nominees not to get VIP passes would just be wrong, wouldn't it.  It would be against Nature's Law and we wouldn't want that, would we?

    I'm with Dr. Herbie:  Do nominees get passes automatically?

    I'd like to third that question. Smiley

    @Sven Groot: from the "You're nominated!" email: "As an attendee to the Niney Awards you also gain VIP access to the MIX ’11 attendee party."

    By the way, has anyone received any plane tickets or anything yet?

    Is this the attendee party? Laura's OP suggests the party is after the Nineys, so does our VIP access cover both?

    What do you mean by "released any plane tickets"?

    @Sven Groot: I meant to say "received", not "released", sorry.

    Ah, okay. Yeah, I got my e-ticket about 2 weeks ago (on a side note, I've also gotten my visa extension for Japan and the new re-entry permit I need to be able to go back, so I'm now certain I can go).

    I know Christian has his tickets but he probably booked them himself internally via MS, and Long has his tickets but I think he got them from MS Australia, not Channel 9.

    I also got my ticket schedule through email -- there was a password and link to a website where I could print out the schedule/invoice for check-in.

    If you're worried email Denise -- she'll fix you!

    Yeah, I got the same, and the confirmation number listed on that schedule worked on United's website so I could pick seats and stuff.

    I received an itinerary for confirmation, but after that, nothing. Except for a travel advisory. No worries, I'll check with Denise.

    Herbie, when are you arriving in Vegas?

  • User profile image
    Dr Herbie

    Sunday about 5 or 6pm.  I'll have been in transit for about 15 hours, so I won't be fit for much more than a quiet sit down and chat if anyone else is there by then  Expressionless

    When are you there?

     

    Registered for Silverlight bootcamp Monday morning and WP7 bootcamp Monday afternoon. Smiley

    I'm arriving on Saturday, based on Christian saying that he'd arrive on Saturday too, only to have him tell me afterwards that he had to change his flight to Sunday. Smiley At least the benefit of that is that I'll have a chance to recover from jetlag. Wink

    I didn't register for any of the bootcamps.

    All these people getting free tickets.  What did I do wrong - I'm paying my own way.

    @Sven Groot: Wow; 2 days to kill in Las Vegas.  If only there was someting to do ... 

    We should assign a meeting place for Sunday evening -- I don't know the layout yet so I don't know where to suggest.  If I can get WiFi access when I'm there (wihtout paying through the nose), we can coordinate through the coffeehouse.
