Ok so their are conventions for everything, games, hardware, software, movies, fundraising, cars.

Is it time for a TechRepublic Convention?

We could tell our bosses its a Tech think tank. We could have PC building competitions, Movie nights, how fast can you code this!

Oh and we'll have to have a "Who can find the appropriate link the fastest" competition, for Peconet Tietokoneet.

have competitions in troubleshooting, coding, script writing, and a PC building in virtual mode (that can **** up or catch fire virtually too)

Aside from that, I wouldnt be traveling for it, nor do I think everyone here has the means to as well, and maybe the funds arent there either.

Well I have done a few where you had regionals that connected via video.

But here it would be tough we would need to cover West coast, East Coast, Brtish Isles, Europe, India, Far East, Australia.

But after thinking about this I realized...

Do I really want to know what you all look like???

Sounds good ,only thing is the time zones.
To get eastern time, where my wife is from, we go back 6 hours and call it yesterday.
The aussies would be in the same boat, go back 8 hours, and call it yesterday.
We dont want a meeting at 2 am Monday morning
