    I believe I will be there with a buddy of mine. We're considering getting in line around 2:30 so we get a t-shirt. =D

    My wife and I should be showing up. I will be wearing a black shirt with an intel logo that says: MAC INSIDE. Maybe bondage/chain pants also to go along with it for fun.

    I've got a bit of a dilemma. I can buy Leopard at the bookstore on Campus, and it'll cost me $69. But if I go _to_ the store, I get to hang out with a bunch of people and have an OS X launch experience... and pay $119 for the exact same thing.

    :confused: What to do, what to do...

    Yep, I'll be there. If you see someone with an iTouch browsing MacRumors, that would be me.

    Well, I have the same problem as Mechcozmo, but I'm certainly not spending the extra $45. I wonder if I can get a shirt without buying leopard. :D

    Anyway... I'll probably stop by.

    My email is JasonAisling@mac.com if anyone is really going, hit me up with a mail and maybe we can all meet. I think the Max and Erma idea is pretty sweet. Anyone think there will be 300 people in line waiting for this thing in Shady?

    Mac Nerd Happy Hour at... 5? If we go any earlier we're likely to see people having some rather disturbing conversations with the Apple Store staff.

    "Sir, would you be interested in in previewing Leopard, with over 300 new features!"

    "..."

    "Sir?"

    "... ... I love you, man!"

    That pretty much would sum up my conversation with a staffer. I should be down there around 5 or so, if traffic allows, someone save me a place in line!

    I'm going to post pics and vids of everything. You might have to remind me to upload them however, as I'll be having too much fun with Leopard! ;)

    Update: I'm standing in front of the Apple store right now posting from my iTouch.

    I was totally there, but at round 7:30 pm... took forever to find a damn parking place lol. I got the 7th to the last shirt, a new macmini with Leopard in the box, and the new keyboard.

    I've been deflowered!

    My first Apple event is now a memory. It was a good time - nice to get in line with fun people. There really is a Mac community.

    I ended up standing next to CompUSAMacNerd.

    Man, looks like whoever made it down had an awesome time. Thanks for posting the pics and video.

    I must say my evening install session went extremely well, I performed the archive and install method.

    Did they have anything other than the T's to give out?

    Hey Marci! It's nice to see you again! I hope the shirt fits. I got mine that I'm going to wear most likely tomorrow at work.

    My email is JasonAisling@Mac.com if you ever want to keep in touch or what not.
