Back from Anthrocon

Tired & jet Lagged. As usual, martes will cover the entire event, so read about it there.

I discovered a way to make printing HUZZAH! at home actually economically viable, though it will be a hell of a lot more work. I learned of sources for toner for the HP2200 a lot cheaper than where I've been able to find them, and ways to refill the cars to bring the cost down even further. Messy and dirty, but economical, which is the major point. The HP2200 willprint duplex, and it is rated for the volume of paper it would have to print. I just have to make sure I have ruggels scanning procedures down before I scan anything else. Apparently what was scanned to his specifications held up even on a bad printer.

As for Anthrocon itself? To make a long story short, I'm not going back again. It cost us $1,350 to attend and I can think of trips we can take and have a lot more fun for that kind of money. I sure can't justify it as a business trip.

Welcome home! Now sit down and rest, you've had a long day. Looking forward to hear your POV on the events anyway.

Due to work, I wasn't able to go to AC this year. After reading some of the stories in various folks' LJs, I'm glad that I didn't. Oh well, more money to spend at C-ACE...

I'm glad you found a solution to the problems
with printing Huzzah! But I'm sorry to read that
you won't be coming back to Anthrocon... I can
understand your reasons though, I haven't been
able to afford a trip to California in 10(?) years.

Same here

We really could not afford the trip to Philadelphia. martes really needed the time away from here and really wanted to see the Mutter Museum, but we won't be making the trip again. It's really just a matter of money in our case as well, it - costs way too much to go.

Anywhere we can drive the camper van to (and use it to sleep in), we can save both the airfare and the hotel expense and save 80% of the cost. We always have friends who will let us use their hotel room for showers & a resting area during the day.
