  Well, I've got the car shopping done (Donne?), and I've started Hemingway.  You read all the Donne/Dunn/whatever we need to know and can fill me in at Con.  Then we can discuss Hemingway as well.  Now all we need is a math whiz and we're set.

How much of a math whiz do I need to be?

  In 93ish hours, people will actually have their characters. 

  In 101ish hours, we will commence with actually trying to kill each other.  Someone really needs to just go ahead and knock off Thomas this year; Laura, I nominate you.

   Cycle, just enough to explain a Bell Curve, Normal Distribution, Gaussian Distribution, and what the appropriate variables represent.

  Now all I have to do is finish Hemingway, take my dad home from the hospital, take my mom to the hospital, and pack.  I really should have started packing already.

  And wouldn't you know it, Ghost Story hit shelves in paperback WITH a preview chapter of Cold Days, I have got to find some free time.  As well as put 40 hours on the clock before Thursday.  Don't you just love this time of year.

  It's times like these I feel bad for the actual HMGers. Think about what their stress levels must be like.  Bona Fortuna, dudes.

Do you want univariate normal distribution or multivariate normal distribution?


Either way you are screwed cause I haven't taken statistics yet and only generally understand this stuff.  :P

I've taken a statistics and discreet mathematics course.  Outside of programming, it's been a while since I've looked at any of that, though... a long while.

  You and Irony are big ole buddies right now, hunh, Cyle?

  And I completely expect you two to go refresh your memories on all of that.  Amy's reading Donne's ten thousand meditations, and I'm halfway through Hemingway.  What else do you have to do?

  Let's see, it appears we know that these people are playing this year:
Ben
Amy
Ricky (You pre-regged?  Did they put the fear into you with the limited characters like they did me?)[I offered to bring my own in case they ran out, I've actually got a full set of cards that have no dates on them :) ]
Joe
Mark
Who the heck is beaninfo?  We have a Pre Reg with no posts?  Introduce yourself.  We don't bite, except for Laura
John
Who is Adisai?  A second Pre Reg with no posts?  Please say hi?
Jeri
Josh
Cyle (I always type that as Cycle)
Gerard
Melissa Travis (I had to look at your picture to remember who you are, we'd love to hear more from you)
Rob
jerepan Welcome oh Pre-Regged non-poster, please speak to us
Dennis the new who guy who has posted recently
Jason
Aaron
Xande
Nikka

  Thanks and hi to all the Pre-Regs (all 20 of us).  I hope some of our other oldtimers who have had to miss recent games can come as well.

Ya, I pre-regged.  I always do.  But even if I didn't, they always say they have limited characters.  Doesn't scare me one bit.

Oh, and Jerepen is a friend of mine.  He played the leader of the Fellowship of Free Mages (or somethings like that), Izzy Boots, in 2010.
