Just wanted to let everyone know I'm there this year. Come say hi to me in the Intel booth if you managed to make it to the event.

I'll be covering the LAN a little bit on my blog at Linus Tech Tips Blog

FPS Doug was here today and so far the event has been awesome.

Check it out!!

Well my camera died already while I was here (batteries only, thank goodness), but I've got lots of great video footage. I'll be doing up a short Tech Tips video covering the event. Make sure you check it out when it's done.

Regards,

Linus

Nice work Linus. Too bad I'm from Ontario, I wouldn't have minded attending that LAN.
