And the blogging starts... NOW

There are nearly two hundred of you still checking here, so thank-you. My internet is better, I'm back from Brickcon, and most of my collection is sorted. Now feels like a good time to post.

Brickcon 2008 was great. I met a lot of really cool people, and I saw a lot of neat models. I had some interesting conversations with anyone unfortunate to acknowledge me, until they successfully shook me off during public hours. Some tidbits I learned at my first con:

- The public hours are total chaos, and should be avoided by ducking into one of the "Private Badge Areas" to listen to an interesting presentation.
- The best way to get around during public hours is by striding behind the tables, or, if you're feeling really cocky, in front of them.
- It is much easier to take pictures as a registered attendee than trying to get them from the visitor end of the stick.
- For that matter, consider taking your pictures five minutes before the doors open to the masses. That way, everything will be as ready as possible.

As I sort of promised, and way behind schedule, here are the galleries for the Space and Mecha layouts. Some of the pictures are a bit fuzzy, but I made a point of trying to get a picture of every single model in those categories. Enjoy!

The only problem with my attempts at shaking you off during public hours was that they involved ducking into one of the private badge areas where you were.


Occasional driving force of the blog, self-proclaimed Lukas fanboy, and aspiring engineer, Jacob spends too much time building LEGO, not enough time practicing piano, and not nearly enough time doing school. He also enjoys long sentences. In the instance of blogging, he believes in quantity over quality, wherever quantity can be maintained.
One of the cofounders of YSAB, and the founder of YSA, Observing Mike actually being productive is a rare occasion. Mike enjoys making outlandish claims in relation to actually building, pretending he's actually sorting his collection, and making excuses for why he hasn't photographed his MOCs. In his free time he enjoys learning CSS from Spook, photography and poking badgers with spoons.
Occasional builder, occasional blogger, and full-time procrastinator. That's really the only way to describe Dean. He rarely gets anything done, but is a very active lurker. He's probably seen and liked your MOC, but just forgot he had a blog.
Erik is still a teenager.
Lukas is tall, blond, mildly OCD, and doesn't build nearly enough as he would like to, thanks to school. He has a webpage.
Spook (Tim)
The resident codemonkey and graphics person. If something isn't working correctly, it's probably his fault. Fitting to his name, he doesn't post often, but someone has to do this stuff too, right? Spook does build with laygoes, and has his own blog as well.
