Pax was EPIC. Seriously, it was one of the best trips I've ever taken. It was great to meet all you destructoiders and I look forward to it again and again. You guys are all freaking awesome, fun, amazing, etc. in every way I imagined ya'll to be. To all you who didn't make it out, hopefully you learn from the mistake of not going.
As usual, all photos were taking on my cellphone so expect some grainy crap.

Cblog Recaps. I discussed the future of this with Conrad at PAX. Basically, this going to be taken over by Conrad managing a bunch of community members doing it from now on. I'm going to finish setting up the account in the next day or 2 and hand over the keys to Conrad. It's been great providing the service to DToid, and I feel really great hearing that I managed to do it long enough that people want it to stay around. But in all honesty, my time nowadays is occupied by many art projects (several of which are dtoid-centric), and it's better if I hand the recap reins over to Conrad so that I may better focus on these projects.
I have so many shoutouts. but it's time for bed so that will come later.
-Niero, thanks for making this all possible. I probably would never have met so many great people and made so many friends in the last year if it wasn't for DTOID.
