An Important Thing to Remember If You're Going to HammerCon

I've been giving some thought to all things HammerCon at the moment, given the convention is about three days away. Bearing in mind that I know almost nothing about the gaming venue, the gamers, etc. who will be at this convention (since it's my first one), I thought that I would pass along a simple piece of advice: Remember the 5/3, 2, 1 Rule of convention goodness. This means that in every 24 hours, get at least 5 (or 3) hours of sleep a night, 2 meals per day (at least one of them should be hot), and take 1 shower per day. And these are minimums, folks, bare minimums (at least for some people).

Following this basic guideline will keep you alive through the convention, maximise your time for gaming, and allow for the comfort of those with whom you are gaming. Please, please, please take a shower and use deodorant, folks. Oh, and no matter what you think, cologne/perfume cannot and does not make up for the lack of showering.

And here, to put the whole showering thing into perspective, is Savage Gypsy:
