Most of our friends are aware that Vivito and I are planning a move south next Summer. Both our families need us, and we need a much bigger place closer to a major medical center for my parents to come live with us.
The upshot is that after a lot of trying to make it work we have admitted that there isn't any way we can make it to SteamCon this year. We are obviously disappointed, but SteamCon III will be in our backyard next year.
We prepaid our tickets at last year's Con, so we will be financially supporting them a bit anyway.
I am certainly disappointed to be unable to do a lot of the things I was planning, and sorry to be unable to help as I had wished. But I know our friends understand the needs of family taking precedence.
We are going to be utilizing our mad building skillz on offline projects here at home, and wishing that it was as easy as rezzing, torturing and texturing prims!
