One Very Important Thing to Remember If You're Going to GenCon

I've been giving some thought to all things GenCon Indy at the moment, given the convention is around 18 days or so away, and thought that I would pass along a simple piece of advice: Remember the 5/3, 2, 1 Rule of GenCon: 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).
