It's a week and a half from now and i still haven't decided if i'm going to go or not yet. I've gone for the last three years, but if i skipped it i'd probably save about $150, which would be enough by itself to cover the difference between getting my old PS3 repaired and just getting a new PS3 Slim.
It seems that this year Seanan McGuire is going to be doing Marcon instead, so i wouldn't even be missing out on that. (I could go see her at Conchord/Westercon, except _that_ is the same weekend as AX =P)
Meanwhile i'm still looking at airline prices and schedules to see if i can make it to DragonCon this year or not.
