To all the good folks attending Fall-IN! 2017, I have to apologize. I haven’t been Johnny on the Spot with Fall-IN! 2017’s Guidebook app. There’s a good reason, but you probably don’t care. Oh what the heck, I’ll tell you. About a year ago at the end of October, a ten ton tree dropped on Casa O’Hara. The damage was devastating. My family has endured a long year of rebuilding, being temporarily homeless, and living in a tiny rental as the contractors did their thing. We are (right now, this week) hitting the end of the tunnel at last. The contractors are finalizing the work on my house and we are moving back in starting this weekend. I don’t claim to be the smartest guy in the world, but I’m clever enough to figure out this isn’t the time to go to Fall IN!. I like being married! Anyway, all that work (and the recent departure of a beloved family pet just last week) has been a distraction from Guidebook building duty. Mea Culpa.
I have not left you all in the lurch. I wouldn’t do that. I have taken the
data Dan Murawski and Jeff Kimmel sent me and updated and published the
guidebook app as of last night.
It doesn’t display the usual tender loving care I usually put into these
things; Missing are the room maps, Tournaments, Hobby University, and
Speakers (if there are any), social media stuff. Included are: the events schedule
(with room locations and table numbers), The Vendor Hall map and
That is about all I have time for, sorry. I don’t consider the omissions
crippling. Unless you are a rank newbie, you can navigate the Host
blindfolded by now. If you ARE a rank newbie, ASK someone. Wargamers are a
generous group and will help you find your table.
The table number will tell you where the room is: D-35 is “Distelfink table 35”.
Usually I spell that out but I don’t have the time.
I don’t have time for a lot of screenshots. If you have downloaded Guidebook before, the instructions are the same as last HISTORICON. The user interface is about identical.
