Hope you all have a wonderful upcoming new year. Every year brings with it new challenges and new opportunities, and I suggest making a list of all the things you might be looking forward to next year.
Everyone on the news is talking about the giant lottery jackpot tonight. Anyone who buys a lottery ticket is buying into the hope and excitement of what you could do with $636 million dollars. People talk about taking vacations, investing, their taxes, but nobody seems to have a very good plan.
New pages to the AnimeCon.org story have been added on the main website.
Read to see the beginning of our crazy adventure... I can't really say much more, since only 10 pages are published so far, but the rest of it (secret) is so cool.
Con Alt Delete is our epic new anime convention in Chicago. We're excited to be hosting one more con at the Sheraton Lisle (formerly Wyndham) that held the super successful Anime Midwest 2012. The hotel staff were all very friendly and accommodating, and the space is the perfect size for about 1,500 people.
If you ever decide to go into business (which I actually do recommend, but only for those with patience and a lot of forethought), you'll quickly learn one of the most complicated and time consuming parts of running your organization is not the day-to-day work.

We've got new signs for every panel/event room, and I just ordered a bunch of stands to put them on.
I updated a little more code on most of my websites today, hopefully making them another 3-4% faster. The number one optimization for 90% of websites doesn't involve complex fine-tuning of the database, but instead fixing bad code.
On any given month, I make an average of $500 from Google Adsense alone. This type of "passive income" is supposed to be free money, right. Right. That's what all the internet told me. Well, I did a little investigating to see where it all really goes, and I'm finding that, well, it gets eaten by the expenses monster.
Aside from part-time robot engineer, convention organizer, and a billion other things, I'm also sometimes a DBA (database administrator). It's a big deal. Walk into a Vegas casino, tell them you're a DBA, and see the looks you get.
Bad and thoughtless driving literally slows everyone else on the road down. Bad and inattentive drivers who drive in the wrong line, talk on cellphones, and don't pay attention to the road should have their license revoked.
