Due to some unfortunate luck on my part, I'm afraid I won't be able to make it to RTX this year after all. It was my own damn fault, really, so I can't say it was just bad luck. Just tried doing too much in a short span and I overstretched. However, knowing what I know now, and the fact that it is actually cheaper than I thought, I have started making plans to go in 2018. It sucks, really. I wanted to go but life, you know, can sometimes deal you a bad hand.
So, to all of you who are going this year, have a fantastic time, and have a drink (or three) for me.
