    I asked Christian to send me a message after he arrives (he lands around 15:30). Long is also arriving on Sunday, around 13:30 I believe. I guess the lobby of Mandelay Bay is probably our best option. Note however that I'm not staying in Mandelay Bay until after Monday since MS didn't cover enough nights and Mandelay was too expensive for me. I'm not far away though, just a bit further up the strip.

    I checked today and it seems my phone network (Softbank) has a fairly reasonable daily flat rate for packet usage abroad, so I might enable data roaming, which means I'm a bit more reachable even when not in range of wi-fi. Facebook is a good way to contact me in that case since I get push notifications for that.

    You guys are all getting there so early!  I'm not going to be there until Monday night - I think 10pm.  It didn't even occur to me to see if the pre-conference workshops on Monday were included.   Too late now.  I have everything set up, and yesterday I got an email saying we get limos to and from the airport and that's great too.  Smiley

    I got the same e-mail. Unfortunately since I'm arriving early and am not staying in Mandalay Bay the first two nights I can't actually use that limo when I arrive. Smiley

    @Dr Herbie:And they have hordes of helpers lining the streets helping them to find new friends. They would be happy to give you the picture and profile of any number of ladies for you to choose from. It's like Facebook IRL.

    Damn my own tardiness!  Realised this morning that I'd forgotten to send my pickup details for the limo pickups!  Sure enough, the deadline was during the night. I sent my details anyway - you never know, they might arrange one for going home.

    Oh well, taxis it is.

    @Dr Herbie: The airport is just across the road and down a little from the Mandalay Bay so if you are travelling light just walk and see a little bit of the strip at the same time!

    If you are lucky one of the helpful local young ladies will offer to walk you there. 

    If you are super lazy then cross the strip and get on the monorail at the Luxor (or Excalibur).

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

     

    Dude, just be thankful you can afford it, I won a free ticket havn't got the money for the air fare.
