Akon was huge! A lot of people ask me if they should attend Akon, and being honest, I have to say: Maybe. It's a city of a con, with mass crowds of people and something happening every single moment. If you like cheerful near-chaos and throngs of giddy geeks, Akon is totally the place to be. If you are of a more sedate nature, you may want to check out more...sedate cons, first. Or hide behind a vendor table all weekend, from which you can view the really amazing costumes in safety!
Sadly, a vendor's table, while strong protection against the teeming throngs, offers no safety to wee little computers. And so my poor innocent laptop was brutally viciously and I do hope not fatally attacked. My laptop being my digital paintbox and editor, I am rrrriight back off the updating spree I was just barely on until I get that sorted out. On the bright side, I should be able to do lots of painting in all the time I'm not on the internet! I'll try and share it, with the Magic of Flash Drives, but be patient, Net People! Lappy 600 and I will get back to business as soon as possible.
