    Why are the only four options for registration - Media, Manufacture, Blogger, Non-player

    What if you're regular joe schmoe who wants to play?

    In that case bring a set of 10x50 binoculars and you can watch from outside.
    If it was me, I'd just reregister

    Well, have fun all you connected folks. I'll miss it, working as a Las Vegas local. I'm not connected to the industry, just like this stuff and meeting you folks as humans, not a poster or poser. We will met again!

    If I really got off my ass and took the time off work, woulda seen many of you at the show somewheres. Yea, I coulda got registered somehow. My bad.

    I'll miss all the fine folks I have met the last 3 years at Fuggers event. Hopefully he can do it again if things go right.

    Good luck to everyone who plays, may the cards show favor on your spot at the table.

    Thanks Fugger, you have been a superb host at all your events. I'm sure you want to lose in the first round to be a great host to everyone................

    WOW what a crazy day today at the show... This place is heaven for us geeks, but i imagine its one of those things you only want to do a few times. The show is so huge we couldn't have walked the whole south hall if we wanted.

    I met Bill Owen at the fractal booth which was really cool and I'm hoping to meet some more XS guys... if you're at the show post up here where you can be found.

    For the guys and gals playing poker, make sure that Movieman wears a short-sleeved shirt, this way he can not hide his extra cards under his sleeves

    Great day today. met lots of very nice and interesting people.
    Here I am up in a suite with Charles and 20 Chinese people, I opened my mouth and this guy says "Boston?"
    It is truly a very small world we live in my friends.
    He and I spent the next 10 minutes discussing New England lobster..
    Then 10 mins later standing and looking up at a 6'5" Texan with AMD with the deep Texas accent and the handshake that would bring a water buffalo to his knees
    This is the part of CES I like the most.
    The people you meet from other parts of the world. The different cultures but behind all the differences you see a commonality of interest and also some brilliant minds.

    Oh, I forgot.. While walking thru CES I heard an announcement over the PA system that Francois Piednoel had just been told that he and I were to be seated at the same table for the poker tournament
    and that Francois was last seen racing for his car and heading west with a look of pure terror on his face..
    Now I don't know if that last part is true but.............
