This was my first PAX, and it was rad. I've been going to SDCC for the past six or seven years, and finally decided to sack up and do both this year. I met and gamed and waited in line with so many fun nerds this weekend! I'm glad I crossed paths with Robert Khoo yesterday so I could thank him in person for such a great con experience. The Acquisitions Inc. show was fabulous as always, and I was so thrilled that I got to see it live. The addition of Paul and Storm as the bards was amazing and hilarious! I had heard stories about the all night gaming binges that happen at PAX, and hanging out at the Sheraton after the show closed last night was just as much fun as I hoped it would be. Now I want to try PAX East.... #addicted

Thank YOU for putting on such entertaining shows! Last night at dinner, I told the Jaroness that we were missing the @wilw vs. @paulandstorm show and she got angry. We're just a couple of tenderfoot Orange County nerds, so the big scary city is big and scary, but that got us talking about the great experiences we've had at the two w00tstock 2.x shows we attended (SDCC with ninja Molly show, and Dr. Demento Halloween w/Chris Hardwick as Wil Wheaton). Even from the audience perspective, it's exactly as you say: overwhelming positivity, inclusiveness, and happy celebration of sharing a few hours with other geeks and nerds enjoying the things that geeks and nerds enjoy. It's an incredible vibe, and the Jaroness and I both found that we left each show with major life-affirming self-esteem boosts. So again, thank you (and [P] & [S] & Adam Savage, not to mention all the amazing performers and other attendees, and of course Dammit Liz) for consistently delivering the awesome.

I'm a fanboy of anything Brian Bendis writes. His creator-owned stuff like SCARLET is good (vigilante girl in Portland) and I loved his DARK AVENGERS run from awhile back (Osborn taking over Iron Man's role, playing therapist to Sentinel, and Bullseye taking over Hawkeye's job were great).

I can't speak for others, but I'm a sucker for any stories involving D&D or gaming. Adam Savage's "first kiss" w00tstock story and your story about "the most advanced computer system ever made" are awesome, for example.

I can't believe she didn't go for the coasters!

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for another epic SDCC #w00tstock show!

Bahaha, classic. The Jaroness and I were talking last night about how neither of us know anyone's phone numbers anymore. I commented that phone numbers have become like IP addresses, and we'd be lost without the DNS of our contact lists.

Brian Michael Bendis' work on DARK AVENGERS made me a fan. Bullseye masquerading as "Hawkeye" was just perfect.

Hey Wil, I was at Target earlier tonight too. Do those Christmas ornament thingies hanging from the ceiling make you think of Cobra Commander, or is it just me?

You didn't let Dammit_Liz get a copy of Munchkin? But she hand-delivered BEER to you and others ONSTAGE! The fragment you've given us of that story sounds uncharacteristically selfish. What happen !!

Thank you & everyone else involved with making this show happen. It was the highlight of the Con for me and my girlfriend, and we loved every minute of it. I'm bummed that Adam wasn't around for the post-show signing, because I'd love to get his autograph in my D&D Divine Power "yearbook" with all the others! I feel like a douche for not having anything more interesting to say than, "Thanks for the show," both in person and in these comments. Dejected arr. Free Molly.

Prove To Everyone was a douche. He could've used a heaping helping of Wheaton's Law. I wanted to confess that I stole your "something got in my eye" joke over the weekend after I saw Toy Story 3. http://twitter.com/jaron95/status/16599184067 I feel extra guilty about it because @AMChelps saw my tweet and apologized to me. http://twitter.com/AMCHelps/status/16727163879 Hope to see you at w00tstock 2.4!

This was one of my favorite Burritos so far. I loved every second of the Warhammer and D&D talk. I was just over at the Fantasy Flight website & caught this preview article for their upcoming 40k RPG, Deathwatch, that you might dig: http://bit.ly/c7lhoU (I bit.ly'd the link due to a question mark in the article's URL.)

Speaking of BBSes, Wil, have you heard the buzz about the Portal update? This should be right up your alley: "A few hours ago, Portal for the PC was updated, with the following as the only patch note: "'Changed radio transmission frequency to comply with federal and state spectrum management regulations' "In addition, a new achievement has appeared called 'Transmission Received', with no explanation of what it is or how to acquire it. The folks over at Shacknews did some digging, and it appears that the patch added a whole bunch of new sound files to the game, all of which are just Morse Code. There's 17 minutes of new audio in all, and the sound clips seem to be triggered by doing various things to the radio in Chell's pod at the very beginning of the game. "It gets even more awesome, though. Some people on the Valve forums ran the audio files through an SSTV program, and got some REALLY interesting results. "I haven't checked it yet this morning, but the images generated via SSTV contained characters that formed an MD5 hash. That hash converts to a Washington phone number, that has been confirmed to be a BBS that, when dialed into, displays a screen referencing Aperture Science." http://jaron95.blogspot.com/2010/03/rave-portal-update-for-pc-generates.html (Not trying to pimp my own blog, but it's the only public place where I could collect & post the relevant links together!)
