    If anyone would like to stay at a nearby Airbnb with myself as well as the wonderful @malia @RyanFodder and @Goatmonger and make this place the second coolest spot in Detroit for 4 days, just let me know. It's $591 for 4 nights (Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat, checkout Sunday) and there is a spare bedroom available at the moment. 5 people split evenly would be $118 per person or about $29.50 per night. Of course if there's a couple who'd be willing to share a double bed it would get even cheaper. It's 2.5 miles from ICHQ and if you don't have a car I'm sure you could catch a ride with either myself or Ryan and Marie.

    @Farge and I are also looking to airbnb, in for a share, can that place fit a 6th if we bring a cot?

    It seems like a fairly large house so I'm sure we can make it work if you guys are happy sharing a room. This is the spare room with the double bed so it seems like you could stick a cot in there. There may also be some kind of office nook that I'm not aware of but I wouldn't count on it.

    BELIEVE IT WHEN I SEE IT, FAM

    And now a reading from the Book of Icrontics, chapter 6, verses 1-14:

    1. And the Lord said that Seth bar Edward ish New York, also known as the Kwitko, or the KwitCo, or the TD_Isles, or... fuck it... never mind. Just the Kwitko, okay?
    2. Anyway, where were we? Oh yeah. The Lord said Kwitko shall appear to you on the twenty-first day of the sixth month, in the seventeenth year of the second millennium- because everybody knoweth that the millennium beginneth on the year one, not the year zero, as many dim of wit shall have ye believe.
    3. And when the Lord proclaimed to the Thracks of Texas, the Thracks did not believe.
    4. And the Lord asked, "The Thracks of Texas, dost thou not believe that the TD- err- the Kwitko shall appear to you?"
    5. And The Thracks of Texas responded, "Lord, the Kwitko has proclaimed many times that he shall appear before us, yet he has not. The Kwitko has cried wolf far too many times."
    6. And the Lord spoke again and said, "Yes, I understand, the Thracks, but to be fair- for I am the Lord- he did have things that got in the way- a new job, and moving, and some other shit."
    7. And the Thracks spoke again and said, "Lord, I shall believe it when I see it."
    8. And the Lord said, "I have given unto the Kwitko the Holy Scroll of the Epics. And the Kwitko shall arrive in the City of Motors on his trusty steed, a white horse named Pilot of the Hondas, with his son, Joseph, at his side."
    9. And the Thracks spoke one last time to the Lord and said, "If what you say is the truth- and it should be since you are the Lord, and would never lie to anyone about anything- then I will be grateful when the Kwitko appears."
    10. And the Thracks continued and said, "And I will greet the Kwitko by running to him and jumping into his arms and embrace him with a brotherly hug."
    11. "And we shall malf polycarb together, like we did before I shorn my hair, and before the Kwitko added many stones to his girth. We shall call it the good old days," said The Thracks.
    12. And the Lord said, "And all will be right in the land."
    13. And the Thracks said, "And the Kwitko will buy my shit."
    14. And the Lord and the Thracks together said, "Fuck yeah."

    The word of primesuspect the Lord, blessed be he.

    I'm planning to drive up from Cinci on Tuesday morning-ish, and leave Detroit on Monday morning-ish. I would like to request a place to sleep in the house on Tuesday night and Sunday night. :) I will be in the same AirBnB I usually stay in for the event-proper.

    Plans aren't completely solid but I'm hoping to drive in Wednesday night and leave Sunday afternoon. I'll be bringing @Goatmonger with me again because she follows me everywhere.

    You know what you should probably do if you're registering an AirBnB? Buy a ticket. :p

    Is anyone going to be bringing/providing spare computers? Jackie cannot afford a gaming laptop at this time.

    I donated one to the house last year. I'm bringing a larger SSD for it this year (the one I won from the raffle last year), but if anyone has a spare Windows license, that would increase the number of games it could play. Otherwise, it's mostly a TF2 machine.

    My direct flight was cancelled, and now I'm connecting through DC and scheduled to arrive in DTW at 4:49 PM.

    Or, you know, get stuck at my connection because LOL air travel. We'll see.

    Screw that noise. I switched to a direct flight, but now I'm getting in at 6:14 PM.

    Edit 2: delayed another hour 😖
    Edit 3: delayed another hour, now arriving around 8:19 😭
