We just arrived at the hilton and so far we're 3 people. So I'd say PubCon 7 is open. :)

yup - sticky/IM. Anyone else in LV let us know.

Wired internet in the rooms is 10.95 a day and pretty fast. No sign of WIFI.

We will scout out the 8 bars shortly.

Yea we got here about 4 hours ago and still haven't seen anyone. All the bars here are only open 4-11p... but the Paradise Cafe is open 24 hours (and they serve alcohol 24 hours :). Not the prettiest place in the hotel, but because of the hours it might be a good congregation spot.

Will check out the Paradise Cafe, right now headed down to meet up at the Star Trek bar and go get dinner.

I just got into my room - the broadband report was for Thomas' room. My room in central tower has no cat-5, but I seem to have found an open wireless network.

What do we need to be able to use their internet anyway? Just an ethernet cord? Or do they have one there? Would it be silly to bring a router?

I'll SM you my #.

I always thought PubCon starts when the first people have food/dinner when others have breakfast. That just kinda take place. Sorry Shak and Dave for the false alarm.

Don't be sorry. They're just jealous they are there. You've kicked it off just fine.

Tip: you may want to bring some sort of search engine or web paraphenalia (hat, tshirt, pin, etc) as it is difficult to congregate here with the hotel lacking a clear lobby bar.

benihanas (in the hilton) will be the best place to all hang out, even though it is a little dark, it is the largest with lots of group seating.

I'll be arriving (driving from nearby) Monday morning/early afternoon. I guess I'll wear a Google shirt early on to be just a tad more obvious to people.

Just got to the Hilton. Hope you *real* SEO's get here soon because there's just nothing to do until then.
