    How many MacRumors folks are from the Pittsburgh area?

    ptrauber mentioned that he was at a Pittsburgh compUSA and ran into UglyChad. Also, Compufix has PA as his location. So, howmany of you are there out there?

    I just moved from San Francisco to Pittsburgh. The Bay Area is just way too expensive...

    i went to undergrad with moxiemike. he will take good care of ya.

    i will be there in october as well... the 18th or so.

    go to "primanti bros" and "nick fat city" if the gathering field are playing.

    god knows that the pirates will be done with their season by then or else i would suggest catching a ballgame :)

    gathering field is quite good

    have you seen em on the commercial for some news show?

    "good things are happening" and the singer isjust playing guitar and singing that... it's the slogan of the show too

    i actually saw the commercial first at a movie... go figure

    I'm in Pittsburgh.

    trying to do some marketing for the city. I have a slogan:

    "Pittsburgh. Where single men go to die. Alone."

    Hehee.

    It's actually not that bad here, gray alot but the sunny days are nice. Summers are quiet but it gets hopping when the universities are back in. Lots of good material for pics.

    I remember Chris (docteeth) from Harvard, Pittsburgh, also known as Art institute.

    I bumped into ptrauber at Comp a few times. Classic, what have you been doing??

    I'm starting to think it would turn into a Geek Fest...there's already a few out there...and a bunch of u guys are nearby...

    I figure it this way....Geek Fest New Orleans was literally 5.5 people (gotta include mini-b2tm)...anything around that number would constitute as a gathering ;)

    We could all go to mad-mex and get good mexican food, margaritas and post to macrumors using their free wireless net access (courtesy www.telerama.com)

    I'm sure there would be some stuff that didn't overlap.... that is, for that moment, they didn't overlap. :)
