Live Images from Austin Maker Faire Answered

I've set my Eye-fi card to automatically upload images as I take them from Maker Faire. Follow along and see what I see through my Flickr stream: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ewilhelm/

I will periodically transfer the good images here.

Woot! I was there! Words can only hint at how awesome it was...
After tracking down there booth (wasn't to hard, I know the fairgrounds pretty well), Eric spotted me and we exchanged pleasantries. I went to go watch a robot fight but soon returned. I met Lamedust, Fungus, Noahw, and Christy (she recognized me!!) and had great fun hanging around the table, managing to answer questions from people. Eric gave me a tshirt and patch, and I got a look at the book, which looks really good BTW. I was a wee bit spaced out as I was recovering from both sleep deprivation as well as a headache, so hopefully I wasn't to weird... Eric showed me the data dumps to see how many accounts there where (something like 700k I think), as well as to see who logs in the most (I can't remember). I advised Ed (Fungus) on good swimming holes, ate orange M&M's, and had an awesome time. Hopefully they'll get my with Eric picture up...

If they tell you, post it as a thread.

Unless I'm really low down, then keep it under your fedora.

All righty.

Betcha I'm in the top 5, or 10 at least...seriously...if I'm not, and lots of people log in way more than me, we have some SERIOUS addicts on here...

Speaking of fedoras, did you ever find your dream fedora?

I got distracted by finding my dream car. I washed him yesterday. I didn't just wash him, I polished him. All my last car got was a hose-down when it got hard to see out the back window...

You have fairly inexpensive tastes-my dream car is a red Ferrari...

So what is the dream fedora?

Not really a fedora, more an Australian bush hat.
