    They are all having to much fun for pictures, having heard Skips room a couple of weeks ago and now it even sounds better we all have an Idea on how good the Audio Thesis room sounds.

    I bet they are all hanging out enjoying Ryan's room this very moment. We can only assume some pictures and reviews will show up tomorrow. I have heard there is nothing but Steers and photographers in Texas :o Let's get some pictures and reviews tommorow.

    It’s about 16 hours, but we could put together a combined system too...

    I should have enough southwest points by then for a flight. I just need to book on advanced for decent rates. Thats what stopped me this year. When i decided to go, rates were too high because it was too close to the date.

    Shoot, I almost didn't come this year because of airline costs. They wanted over 1K just for the flight. Ended up getting a car and airline tickets for $510. Paid the price on a layover in Chicago for an unexpected 5 hour layover.....ouch! Showed up at the hotel at 2:00am, when I was supposed to be here the day before at 7pm. Grrr.

    Oh well, I am here and Russ still smells.
