Yesterday I bought my plane tickets and made my final reservations for this year's MAX Conference. I'd hoped to arrive the Saturday before and stay through the Sunday after, but it looks like anyone who doesn't already have a room booked for Nov 5th/6th isn't going to be getting one. None of the Conference hotels have any left, and the only other area hotels I could find for those days are either far away or marked up to ridiculously high rates. At least there's the weekend before, Halloween! I'm not sure what to expect, but I am very sure it's going to be an interesting time! I'm still arriving Saturday, but am now leaving on Friday the 5th. If you're going to be around early, drop me a note.
