So, this past weekend was Starfest, the media sf convention that is put on in Denver every Spring. It includes a HorrorFest and a ComicFest at the same time, which is nice, but unfortunately makes things a little crowded at the moment. I wasn't able to attend last time because Drupalcon in San Francisco was the same weekend, but this year we dropped by.

Five years ago we celebrated that anniversary with a party, and this year, on Saturday, we're celebrating our tenth. If you know either of us, feel free to drop by if you're at the con, and help us drink this alcohol we scored for the party. We've even picked up Crystal Skull Vodka.

As I said, I've also got a few events on the schedule:
