Aye - it was like that at LonCon; there was a day where there wasn't anything I felt was (for me) unmissable, so took myself off into London to do Harry Potter touristy stuff.

I'm currently using the app to try and figure out where I want to be and when.

@Targh is also going to be there. I think Jo is going to be tending the TitanCon table. Johann (whose board name I can't remember right now) should also be there.

What do people usually put as their badge names? I see that the default is name and surname, but that sounds so formal ... :idea:

It really varies.  Professionals/aspiring professionals, etc. will most likely have their first and last name on their badge.  But if you are from this board and just attending to hang with other people from the board you might only have your board name on your badge.  Or a combination of board name with your first name.  Or just your first name...it's really whatever you are comfortable with and what name you want people to identify you by.

I just asked for my first name *slash* board name. Easier like this :)

I've done the same, first name/board name. Though considering the first part of my board name IS my first name, I don't know why I bother. lol.

I just put Pebble.

 

I'd feel weird giving out hugged by Pebble badges and not have that as my badge name

Ok, I just put my first name and the forum name too. Seems like something that makes sense.

I would be up for that on another date if its offered again.  But I think that day/time is when Peadar has his solo panel.

Just wanted to let you know that The_Geekling and I have decided to come out to Helsinki at the very last minute. We are staying at the Clarion and getting in Tuesday evening and leaving on Sunday morning.

I'm bummed we're missing Wednesday. I don't know how I planned it that way.

It seems there is a beer tram that does a 40 minute circuit around town...

This is good to know. Such research deserves a beer!

I had that problem too at first. I was only arriving Thursday evening. :(

Changed my flight because I wanted to be there for it all. ;)

Right - myself and Wert have been looking at the schedule, and barring any additions of epic coolness that can't possibly be missed, we are looking at going to Tallinn on the Thursday.

Obviously, the more the merrier.

There's a restaurant in a pirate ship in Tallinn. Just sayin'.

Had an error in my prior post.

Of course I am arriving on Tuesday.

It was Thursday before I changed my flight.

While I'm in town I'll be visiting as many of these as possible. If anyone's up for some brewery trips, give me a shout.

I'm in of course. PM me or send me a note on Facebook and will give you my phone number if interested. I get in Thursday though and am at sokos torni. 

 

Ran - how do we get your autograph on our world of ice and fire book?  You have a signing time or should I just ambush you and Linda?
