    Ok...we made the votes...and New Orleans barely beat out San Francisco...

    and we have enough interest in New Orleans from some u guys to justify having an extended weekend/geek party this summer...he he he :D

    So for now I have one guarantee of early July....so this will probably be the time unless many of u cannot do it in July...

    we need to get a headcount of who will be coming so we can figure out what we can do for group rate hotel rooms...

    so go for it! ;)

    It looks like my wife and I should be able to show up. You do know that the 4th is on a Thursday, so making it that weekend, 6th and 7th, could in all likelyhood be a good time for a nice 4 day trip/long weekend.

    I do wish I could make it... but it looks like school is just going to be too demanding this summer. Blah. And there's cheap-arse flights from Tampa to New Orleans, too. (Ha, funny story. Once I was at TIA picking up a friend on the night before the Bucs played the Saints. There were all of these Bucs fans waiting to get on a flight out there, and I saw this one guy with three Coronas in each hand and holding a lime in his mouth. It was classic.) Anyway, I'm sure you'll have plenty of fun.

    Oh oh oh! I was in New Orleans for the 4th a few years ago, and we had a corner suite facing the river at the... Hilton? Is that a choice? Anyway, it was the coolest thing in the world to be able to sit there and watch the fireworks go off from the barge and have room service at the same time. :D

    Let me know when, and I'll be there. I LOVE New Orleans, and it's a quick drive from Montgomery. This could get ugly, as I'm still a college student, and we tend to do some strange things on vacation. Oh yeah, it'll also be great to meet Backtothemac, Alabama's own Mac Genius. See you guys there. This is going to be great!!!

    Well, it will be in July, you going to have the car by then? You could do a road trip, pick up other Mac Rumor Geeks on the way. Actually, a roadtrip sounds kind of fun....

    Uh, oh. We might have conflicting plans for the 4th. It doesn't look good for my wife and I that weekend, sorry. We might make it down there sometime this year, though, so I'll let you all know if we happen to be in the neighborhood.
