Very sad news indeed. But he has to do what he believes is right. I know I will miss it as it is the only real time myself and my Army Sister really get together as a family.

Sad news. Arthur has posted on Facebook that the Expo won't be happening next year. Politics, it would seem.

Greetings Steampunk Friends!

I come seeking a favor. I am an organizer of an event in Toronto, the evening of Friday October 12th. And our opening party is Steampunk themed. I am hoping to find some local steampunk artists that I can hire to decorate our space and help turn it into a magical land of future yore! Hopefully someone has some decorations laying around from previous cons and parties. We have a small budget, but we will pay you. Please let me know if you are this person, or know of anyone. thanks so much!

I got my registration in today.  The images were broken in the confirmations, but the codes were all there.. so hopefully there shouldn't be any trouble.  Looks like things are mostly up and working. :)

Don't know if any one has done any updates but the fan page has gotten a ton of info on it in the past 24 hours of this years event.

Comment by Professor Torey Tesla on February 12, 2012 at 4:15pm

Looks like there is an issue with the registration link to paypal. I keep getting a failure to complete sale message after I try to buy a pass.
