BeOS & Derivatives "FalterCon 2007 took place on August 11, and it went quite well (IMHO, of course). Here I would like to share my personal impressions of the event, as well as make a few (somewhat) related observations. When the news of the WalterCon cancellation broke out and I read about some people being left with non-refundable air tickets, my first reaction was 'OK, let's do something with these guys'. A few emails later with Mike Summers, Bryan Varner and Urias, we had decided on having a community gathering which, as many of you know, was to later be called FalterCon (yes, pun intended). In approximately two weeks, we found a venue (and a good one!), had this website running, prepared some nice promo material, and were able to gather nine people willing to attend. All in all, I think we did pretty well given the very little time we had."

A) I forgot about the driving thing.

B) I'm not trying to be a prick, I'm just naturally gifted at it.

C) A simple "No thanks, we can't make it, sorry." response would have been nice. I didn't submit anonymously. You guys could have easily contacted me in response.

Anyhow, I'm over it. I hope you are.

Ah, you submitted it via our submission engine (each submission gets emailed, found the email)... That's not really the way to go. I read the headline you used ("Faltercon this weekend") and deleted it since we don't announce conferences. If you want to contact us, do so directly, or via osnews-crew@osnews.com.

Eugenia doesn't see those submission emails at all, since she doesn't receive them.
