Ah... I guess we better start actually planning the details.

There's a million things to do in Austin, and there's warm weather so we have a lot of outdoor options too.

I say this having received severe shoulder sunburns this weekend. But that was ACL... totally worth it.

I'm really exhausted right now from the whole ordeal, so my ideas are nil, but I think whatever everyone wants to do, we should keep it simple and open, and probably within walking distance of downtown (?) just so people without cars can manage.

if we postpone it a week i can definately swing it. (get paid next week friday) but i didn't want to put anyone else off simply because i couldn't make it this weekend.

If we delay it, it wouldn't be a Proxy Fest, it's be "Texas Drunken XKCD Meetup". I like the word Proxy.


I'm in like a ho chi min, the weekend after this coming one.

I'm trying to move into a new apartment within the next couple of weeks, so depending on what happens with that, I should be able to go next weekend as well.

Well that makes 3 available for next weekend.

I'm not really sure who else was interested. KicktheCan? He might be in Austin already.

VERDICT?

(I'm not so sure there was anyone else at this point) Raise your hands, class.

Looks like I won't be able to do it either time. I have engagements that weekend.

I'm looking into heading out to Austin over fall break (whenever that happens to be) so maybe we'll see about another (drunken) meetup then...

Another time might be better, actually. I just put the deposit down on my new apartment today, so I'll be a bit strapped for cash for the next couple of weeks and won't be able to make it next weekend.

Well all of you suck ; )

That's ok, it was a great idea. Those willing to come to Austin and drink with me anytime are welcome, given enough advance.

I'd rather do it when we can get at least 4 or 5 people involved. Or if you don't creep me out, possibly less. Given time, anything is possible! (I'm not giving up, if some of you guys still want to do it next weekend I am cool with that)

Maybe I'll have a drunken proxy fest by myself and take plenty of pictures to make everyone jealous.

I know if there's one thing that'll make me more jealous than anything else, it's pictures of someone else getting drunk alone on a Saturday night.

I think that was a cry for pity, but I'm glad it gloriously backfired, because I'm ashamed of doing so. Thank you.

Hey, we can all have drunken proxyfests by ourselves! If we're all drinking at the same time, we're not drinking alone... technically... I mean... um... yeah.

then it wouldn't be a texas proxy fest, it'd be the "worldwide" proxy fest

and since i don't like drinking alone, well, balls to that.

Er, how many of you guys plan on drinking at this meetup? I really want to go but i'm only old enough to smoke... and i don't feel like dragging the group down. But HELL I'd go to Austin meet up from San Antonio. I can even get my friend to go with me. He'd do it.

Edit: er, just reading the posts and my schedule, i could go but postponing sounds better. :/. Maybe next week? Just make sure it's not in mid october. I have Oni Con to attend. And i can't miss that.

Any weekend after the first weekend of October. Best friend's wedding, back in GA, so I'll be strapped until after then.

I'm planning on going to Austin over my fall break, which is from (Thursday - Sunday) October 11 - 14. I have friends in Austin outside of xkcd that I'd be going to see primarily, but if we could get some kind of xkcd meetup going on that weekend that'd be really cool.

I was about to suggest Oct. 20 & 21 because that is maker faire, but oh well. Still if anyone is interested that should be in keeping with the xkcd spirit.

Threadsurection! :-D

I'm visiting San Antonio for a couple of weeks. (Actually applying for some work, too, but that's all the time these days, huh?)
What did you bring the book I didn't want read out of up for?
