Got back from work to good news. The fix, and my pay, is in. Six and a half weeks I've been waiting for that, and it is good. Of course, starting a job means all kinds of things get in the way of having vast amounts of cash to blow of booze, drugs and hookers.  Back-payments of board, loan payments, finally paying John what I owe him, all these things. But at last, I can afford it — and alcohol on the side.

In other news, I want to run a con. Slow build, long term, big but not excessive payout. Ideas, anyone?

I'm assuming you don't want to build a massive credit rating with numerous banks and the take out huge loans and skip the country right? That sorta scam takes years and robs the banks of hundreds of thousands....you could try the Nigerian Prince scam. But the returns on that are unreliable. Some kind of pyramid scheme maybe?

They're all too simple. No style. An old-time grift, working people just right and walking away without them ever knowing they've lost hundreds of thousands.

Ah, Oceans Eleven on a more realistic scale.

How much of a geek am I
I read you wanted to start a con, I first thought that I had was "I wonder if Digital is gonna have a roleplaying con or a sci fi con."

Yea...big geek...

Geeks have money. Lots of money. Look at all the cash they shell out on replica phasers and gaming books. You already speak their language. You could con geeks.

I recommend pulling the old sex toy con, aka Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. If you haven't heard of it, I shall elucidate further.

It was either that or Roger Amchip the dead consultant.

Both classics.

Unless you want to pull a two-man gig. I'm more than open to collaboration.

I don't work with strangers.
