Kick ass man! I had no idea this thing was free or I'd have been planning to go to it weeks ago :P I'm in Oklahoma so it'd be simple for me to drive down to Dallas. Meeting Romero would be cool :P

Dammit, can't Romero hold a conference in my home town or something ? When sending the invitation, I'd better not mention that my town has more cows than people, then.
