We are home now as well. We had a great time meeting everyone, and even though we didn't get to talk to everyone, it was still tons of fun (and there's always next time).

nyny523 definitely needs an avatar after tonight. Maybe one of the several photos of her will come out to her liking, and she'll put one up (please, please, please).

Inundated, it was very nice to meet you, and I hope you enjoyed yourself, even though it's a very quick trip.

Miro and Mr Miro, we didn't get to chat really, but it was nice to meet you both. Mr Miro needs to start posting on the forum now.

Pigonthewing and theinstigator breathed new life into their adventurous last weekend by telling the story again at dinner. I think, from now on, when I hear anyone say the word "geyser," I'll be reminded of you.

Landrumdh, it was nice sitting next to you at dinner and chatting with you. Glad you felt well enough to join us.

DTV Tivo Dealer, thank you so much for the tshirts and the playing cards. It was great meeting you, and we're so glad you made it for dinner.

NYCwbyfan, we're so glad you made it too. We didn't get to talk much, but we hope you had a good time.

Raj and splendid, it was a lot of fun hanging out with you both at the Javits Center and tonight. If there's another photo expo, we'll definitely have to go again, but go earlier in the day.

Mike2001, Graymalkin, SSchwart, Ellinj, dswallow and Peter000, it was nice seeing all of you again. Mike, we're looking forward to seeing the pics you post after you buy that new 500 mm lens.

I hope I didn't forget anyone....I'm tired.

Last I heard, nyny523 is in charge of organizing NYNY the sequel.

We just got home. Not too bad although things were a bit wet.

We had a GREAT time!! And quite a few photos... How many make it out of here alive, well that remains to be seen.


You guys are great and I'm looking forward to hanging out with you guys again!!

Deb & Toine, definitely next time, and yes, earlier. There was WAY too much we missed!! It's nice to meet up with fellow photo geeks and share ideas.

Mike, nice meeting you!! You're a really cool dude! Hope you had a safe trip home all the way back to long island.

DTV TiVo dealer, thanks for everything, and it was a real pleasure talking home theater geek stuff with you guys!! We'll take photos tomorrow possibly and post here.

Doug, nice hanging out with you too!! Maybe next time you'll get to audition candidates for your new... nevermind.

Pigonthewing, you and TheInstigator were cool to hang out with too. (don't worry the blackmail photo is safe.... You too Doug.)

And yes, Miro, my name's not Raj, even though I think it fits perfectly. It's that that throws everyone off. Ryan A. J. is the name so I get the initials R.A.J.

NYCwboyfan, I think I like the cowgirls too... and the yankees aren't so bad, when they lose (just kidding!)

Everyone else I left out, hey you know we had a GREAT time. Come join us next time.

To all those that missed it, well you have other opportunities to redeem yourself. But take this as a warning... be there or be square.

I too, just got home safe and sound, just a bit wet from the rain! Needless to say, I had fun time meeting you guys! Although I am the bearer of bad news...

As we got back to Times Square, Pigonthewing and Instigator realized that somewhere along the way, TivoManII was missing!! I hope they were able to find him back in Stout or else we will have to have a moment of silence for the little guy...

Other than that, I had fun enjoying the Wisconsin Style Pizza and the HoeGaarden! You guys are awesome and I hope to meet up with you guys at other events! Yeah, you can say I'm hooked on these meet things...

Just got home myself, had a great time. Thanks to Deb and Toine for organizing and everyone else that made it a great time. Hope to see you all again, either at the Boston meet or the NYC meet in November.

Well I made it home finally.

It was fun meeting all the new faces and always great meeting the old ones.

Deb and Toine thanks for organizing this. I thought I was in charge of NYNY II.

Michele and Shawn I'm glad you both decided to come out. See were not so bad after all.

Mike you deserve extra kudos for trekking in from Ohio. I can't thank you enough for that.

David, Jeff and Steve thanks for coming down from CT and Boston. Your presence was appreciated.

Sheryl I'm really glad you decided to go. See we don't bite, unless you ask us too. We got some hanging out to do. J-E-T-S, Jets Jets Jets!

Ryan (don't call me Raj) and Splendid it was such a pleasure meeting you both and remember, "Your getting a Nikon right!"

Doug and Robert, Danny it was a pleasure meeting you. I want a rematch at cards

Instigator and pigonthewing also a pleasure meeting you. What's the name of that place again?

Peter always a pleasure seeing you.

I hope I didn't miss anyone. NYC I was a great success thanks to all involved.

(Rant mode ahead! )

OK, so I was worried about getting from NJ to the airport, and hired a car (at twice the cost, and then some, of the one way flight cost)...

The guy was snoozing in his car when I walked out of the hotel.

His gas gauge was near empty. (The "FUEL" light was solidly lit, for one.)

The BASE cost of the trip was nearly $10 more than the woman quoted me over the phone.

Tolls, of course, were not included (though I would suppose that was standard.)

And, despite the woman on the phone telling me I should leave at 6:30 AM if I wanted to get to the airport by 7:45 or 8, I got here at...let's see...about 7. (That's actually a good thing, though I have more time to kill at the airport...) And his car, thankfully, made it from NJ to LGA on fumes.

Next time, I stay closer. I only stayed out there because I thought I'd be driving in and taking a train into Manhattan. (And maybe the next room, as nice as it looks, won't have tiny bugs crawling down the wall every half hour...)

(End rant! )

Well worth any of it, though...you were all fantastic. I'm gonna try and make it back next month if at all possible.

Tivo Man II is missing.

He was last seen at the Heartland Brewery on 43rd Street in Manhattan. We're not sure if he made the trip to Stout.

If anyone has seen or knows the whereabouts of Tivo Man II contact pigonthewing or the instigator immediately. We will spare no expense to get him returned home safely.

I am happy to report the original Tivo Man is safe and sound and resting comfortably awaiting his next adventure.

Sorry, we didn't see him.

Dang, I wonder if he had too much to drink and got run over by a runaway cab?

They should call the Heartland today. Ask of our waiter Antonio, or anyone else found him at the table. The number is in the sticky thread, you know where.

We hope he's found. He seemed to be having so much fun.

Ohh my, TiVoManII is still down?

Hopefully he's found safe and sound (well maybe very drunk if still at the brewery)

Aww, I'm sure they'll find it at Heartland. (Did they find Gray's umbrella sleeve thingie?)

I seem to recall that I saw it behind pigonthewing and theinstigator up on the ledge, but I don't know if that was theirs or TivoManI...if it was left there, goodness knows it won't be hard to spot.

I can spot at least two good Future Avatar pics for a certain someone...(who won't see this until she gets to work tomorrow... hehe )

As for me, WHY DO I CLOSE MY EYES WHEN PICTURES ARE TAKEN? Oh, well.

And by popular vote mine sucks and I need a new one. I have no good photos of myself, I think Toine's is better than my current, but I can't get to the jpg to make an avatar out of it.

That is unless somebody has another photo that's better?

Sadly, no, we didn't. My little TiVo guy was orphaned in NYC! We can only hope that whoever found him will provide a proper home. On the bright side, he did very much enjoy his trip into the big city. I have several pictures I'll be posting later (they're still in the camera, which is in my car).

Well, I'm going to go click on all of those photo links now. It was great to meet all of you, and I hope to see you soon. Maybe we could go this little coffee shop I know - not sure if I mentioned it - it's called.....
