Neither a gamer nor an editor, but walking the show floor of Newegg's LANFest 2K7 wearing a TR shirt, I feel like I'm getting about as much attention as Fatal1ty... orrrr not. Although several guys have stopped me to say how much they read and depend on The Tech Report's reviews, I suppose Wendel's probably getting slightly more attention as he hangs out around XFX's and Abit's booths.
So if any of you Friday evening/Saturday morning readers are indeed here at LANFest, post here and let me know where you are. I may have a little something for a few of you if you want to meet up somewhere.
And if you're in the Ontario, California area and don't have a date or other worthy plans for the weekend, come on down to the convention center. Admission for spectators is only $5. Newegg and several sponsors (including OCZ, XFX, Shuttle and Crucial) have stepped up to make this a fairly impressive show.
