How did it go?

I wouldn't know. I was busy working on MODs and Operation: Underground.

Ugh.  I tried almost the entire day Saturday to log in, unsuccessful the entire time.

The only thing I can think of is that my login was never validated at the PXO end.  I never got a confirmation message, despite me sending email after email and even visiting the manual validation page.

In the future, how can I get somebody from PXO to validate me?

For those who could actually get in, I hope it was fun.  I wish I could have been there. :(

It went very well in general; I was on for a few hours yesterday towards the end of the FS2 portion. I would have been there for FS1 as well but I had an operation on Friday and was feeling too weak to get on the computer much. I saw quite a few new faces there that I have not seen before as well.:)

ack...the post reply/submit new thread buttons are reversed again, hehe

Yeah, but I *did* visit the manual validation page.  See above.  I tried validating several different login names, and none worked.

The funny thing is, I also tried "change email address", thinking that the system would kick me out if it thought I was trying to change the address of an unvalidated name, and it let me change the addresses of names that weren't even validated.  So I still don't know if the names truly validated properly or not.

Hey, thanks for the concern.:) It was actually a series of operations done in sequence; lets see...something called "turbinoplastic surgery," another one named "nasal septum deflection correction" and two more I can't remember. (lol I can never remember these weird medical terms:D) For the last year or so I was basically suffering from an extremely bad cold which was pretty much perpetually lasting and had a variety of other effects that interfered with my daily activites. In the last month or so it was getting worse, so I tried a variety of medications and antibiotics to see if it would go away. When none of those had any effect and the various doctors I consulted recommended the operation due to some messed up organs in my nose, I decided to go for it.;) My nose is now stuffed up once again, but this time with blood from the operation (:p:D), but it should clear away in time.;)

The procedure went fine, except that at one point after the operation, when the anesthetic was still in effect, the doctor and nurses said that I was mumbling in my sleep about hypocycloids and some weird math equation. :D:D (I can't remember doing that though)
